Ladies and Gentlemen, it is almost March, and you know what that means… College Basketball season!! Now the Purdue Boilermakers are traveling to the East Coast to take on the Maryland Terrapins, and I’m here to break it down so you can (responsibly) make the most out of this sweet offer from DraftKings.
Now Purdue was on an absolute tear for a while until their recent losses to Indiana and Northwestern. They’re still first in a pretty loaded Big 10, but they’re only one point favorites to unranked Maryland. Purdue is heavily reliant on their big man, Zach Edey, who has a ridiculous usage rate of 32%. He averages 22 and 13, and has been the main reason for Purdue’s success this year. Purdue has great fundamentals, ranking 9th in rebounds, 32nd in assists, and 13th in opponent’s points per game. They just keep finding ways to win and looked almost unstoppable until recently.
Maryland, on the other hand, has kind of been slept on this season. They’re 8-6 in a very competitive division, and have been very successful in out-of-conference play. They average a couple less points on offense and allow a couple more points on defense, but as we learned from Indiana and Northwestern, even if Edey has a big game, the Boilermakers are still beatable. Jahmir Young has been a great leader for this team, averaging 16.2 points and 3.2 assists per game, both of which lead the team. Maryland also is a daily deep squad, with 4 players who average double digits compared to Purdue’s 2. As we’ve seen, all it takes for Purdue to get beaten is an important player having an off night. Maryland has won five of their last six, they’re at home, and they’re hungry. Give me the Terrapins in this one; there’s a reason a former #1 ranked team is only a one-point favorite to an unranked squad. Take Maryland and get $150 in bonus bets if you pick the winner with DraftKings.
