Earliest Cash - Rickenbach CBB Game #603 Saturday 8* OVER the total in Maryland Terrapins vs Illinois Illini @ Noon ET @ Madison Square Garden in New York, NY -  This neutral-site game is part of the Big Ten's annual Super Saturday College Hoops and Hockey double-header. Though Maryland games have stayed under the total in 3 straight games, the Terrapins have faced some quality defenses to say the least. Prior to those 3 games, Terps games were on a perfect 7-0 run to the over. Also, the Illini are allowing 75.3 points per game this season which is dead last in the Big Ten. The most recent game for Illinois stayed under the total but that was versus defensive-minded Wisconsin. Prior to that one, Illini  games were on a 3-0 run to the over. This total opened up as high as a 148 and is now down to as low as a 144.5 as of about 5 hours before tip-off. I am happy to grab the additional value here with the over as Maryland is looking for a break-out game and will run and gun after their 7 game win streak came to an end courtesy of a low-scoring loss at Michigan State. Of course the Illini are not the Spartans and the Terrapins bounce back big here. The Terps had averaged 77.3 points per game in their 9 games prior to scoring just 55 at Michigan State. The Illini loss versus Wisconsin saw Illinois score only 60 points which tied their lowest scoring output of the season. This is the type of situation today that will see both teams in full bounce back mode with an emphasis on quick baskets and getting their flow back on offense. The over is 6-2 this season when Illinois is off a Big Ten game. 8* OVER the total in Maryland (neutral site game)
