The Maryland Terrapins are set to head on the road against the Navy Midshipmen on Friday night.

Terrapins looking to build off strong season opener

In the last several years, Maryland has become a constant in the NCAA tournament picture with three straight appearances. This has shifted the attention toward improving on their first-round exit last season in the 76-65 loss again Xavier. Freshman forward Jalen Smith is set to lead the way after posting a double-double with 19 points and 13 rebounds in the 73-67 win over Delaware on Tuesday night. Smith was highly effective with his shot hitting 8-of-15 shot attempts in the contest.

The Terrapins have a young squad that is in place led by their underclassmen on both ends of the floor. Forward Bruno Fernando put together a solid outing in the season opener scoring 15 points while nailing all six of his shots in the contest. Guard Anthony Cowan Jr. put together an encouraging performance with 15 points and six rebounds. Maryland will likely lean on their young core freshman and sophomores to lead the charge offensively to push them. This should see them put together another strong outing against an inferior opponent on Friday night.

Slow start out of gate for Navy

The Midshipmen got off to a rough start to begin the 2018-19 campaign after suffering a one-sided 67-44 loss to Old Dominion on Tuesday afternoon. It was a complete struggle for Navy to find any c0nsistency in the contest falling well behind the Old Dominion in convincing fashion. They shot a disappointing 25.0 percent from the field that included 23.8 percent from beyond the arc while committing 14 turnovers to just nine total assists in the contest. It was the epitome of a blowout loss that saw them limp through the game without any true resistance. Senior big man George Kiernan led the way with a team-high 10 points and five rebounds in the loss. Beyond that, no other player on the team finished in double-figure scoring.

The Navy Midshipmen are coming off a solid 2017-18 campaign where they finished with a 20-12 mark that had put them just outside the picture for March Madness in the NCAA tournament. If they struggle once again offensively, it could turn out to be another discouraging outing against another formidable team in the nation that has a chance to make so more noise. The lack of a true scoring punch could wind up hurting them to produce offensively, especially against a Power 5 school in Maryland. It will be on them to come out strong from the get-go to even have a chance to topple the Terrapins.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

This has the billing for Maryland to push past Navy in convincing fashion in this early-season matchup. The Terrapins should quickly race out to a comfortable margin behind the play of their underclassmen.

Prediction: Maryland -13.5

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Given that this will be a one-sided affair, the Midshipmen’s shortcoming offensively should come into play in this contest. It should see them fall short of the over due to the lack of offensive firepower. What should also be noted is that the under is 8-2 in Terrapins’ last 10 non-conference games. Meanwhile, the under is 5-1 in Midshipmen’s last six contests overall.

Prediction: Under 137
