NCAAW March Madness: #15 Holy Cross vs. #2 Maryland (-26.5) Prediction

What a tremendous season we’ve had so far and it’s only going to get better from here. We are currently up 41.42 units this season (141-102-1) in women’s basketball and had a fairly solid showing throughout the conference tournaments.

Now we get focused for the best stretch in all of sports: March Madness.

Note: We’ll be betting a small amount on every underdog this tournament and tracking it on Twitter (@WhoopinBets). 

Underdogs SU: (0-2, -2u) 

March Madness YTD: 1-1 (-0.15)

Holy Cross vs. Maryland (-26.5) | OVER/UNDER 133.5

Don’t get it twisted, Holy Cross has played some really good ball this season. They play outstanding defense and are fresh off a Patriot League title. Now the Crusaders will try and slow down a Maryland offense that averages 79 points per game (12th). The Terrapins don’t play the greatest defense, however, Holy Cross ranks 236th in scoring offense. A stat that I can’t seem to get over is the Crusaders opponent average winning percentage is 42.1 percent, which ranks 337th out of 361 teams. I expect the Terrapins to wear down Holy Cross and even though it’s a large number, I like Maryland -26.5. I’m not rushing to the window to bet this one but it’s my best bet for this game.

BEST BET: Maryland -26.5 (-115)
