The undefeated Maryland Terrapins will host the Hofstra Pride in an inter-conference battle Friday night from the Xfinity Center. The Pride thumped North Carolina AT&T by a 92-72 score in their latest action, and the Terps also played North Carolina AT&T in their previous contest, and they came away with an 82-59 victory. This is the first meeting between these two schools since 2003.

Wright-Foreman Shines in Rout of North Carolina AT&T

The Hofstra Pride will be aiming for their first road win of the season in this one. They dropped their first road contest 76-72 against Marshall in a game that had them as 7.5 point dogs. The Pride rebounded with a solid 92-72 home win over North Carolina AT&T on Wednesday night. Hofstra shot a sizzling 53% in the victory. Justin Wright-Foreman resumed his scorching play in Wednesday’s win, accumulating 22 points on 6 for 9 shooting. The senior guard has scored at least 20 points in all three games, and he is averaging a remarkable 25.3 points and 5.7 rebounds per game. Eli Pemberton is also in a groove. He netted another 19 points on a 5 for 9 mark from the field in Wednesday’s win. The senior guard has scored at least 18 points in all three games, and he is posting 18.7 points on a dazzling 59% shooting percentage.

The Pride are ranked at 152nd in the country in Ken Pomeroy’s college basketball rankings. The duo of Wright-Foreman and Pemberton led the Pride in scoring last season, and they will be tough to stop in CAA play. Hofstra is currently averaging 81 points through three games, placing them 127th overall. The Pride are allowing an average of 69.7 points.

Terps Tip-Off Season with Three Wins

The Maryland Terrapins will be seeking their fourth consecutive win to start the season in this one. They are playing terrific defense in their perfect 3-0 start which included an 82-59 home win over North Carolina AT&T in their previous contest. Terps’ leading scorer Anthony Cowan Jr. drilled four three-pointers for a total of 13 points in that one. The junior guard led Maryland with 15.8 PPG last season, and he is off to a promising start, posting 17.3 points on an average of 33 minutes of playing time. Bruno Fernando is also playing well, going a combined 16 for 21 from the field for an average of 13.7 points to go along with a team-leading 8.7 rebounds per game. Maryland also features five-star recruit Jalen Smith who stands second in team scoring with 14 points on a 51.7% clip from the field.

The Terrapins are a young team on the rise, and they could surprise some teams this season. They are ranked at 34th in the country in Ken Pomeroy’s college basketball rankings. Maryland is averaging a solid 77.7 points through three games, ranking them 177th overall. They are playing sharp defense, holding opponents to only 61 points, good for 48th in the country.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

I am siding with Maryland in this contest. Maryland is a talented young team that has been sharp in both ends of the court through three games. The Terps feature three players averaging at least 13 points in three games, and I expect their depth to shine through in this one. Opponents are shooting 46.4% against Hofstra this season, and two of Hofstra’s three games occurred against smaller schools in Mount St. Mary’s and North Carolina AT&T.

The Terps have allowed 59 or fewer points in two straight games, and I expect them to neutralize Hofstra’s offense, and come away with a convincing home victory.

Prediction: Maryland Terrapins

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

The over is a solid option in this one. Maryland has averaged 80 points in their last two games, and they have five players averaging double-digits in points on the season. Also, the Terps strong rebounding should allow them to control the play.

In addition, while I expect Maryland to contain the Pride offense, Hofstra features Justin Wright-Foreman who is averaging 25.3 points along with Eli Pemberton with 18.7 points, plus the over is 9-4 in Hofstra’s last 13 games following a straight up win.

Prediction: Over

Full-Game Prop Bet
Rating:

I am taking the over on the Maryland team total. Hofstra ranks down at 273rd in the country with an average of only 34 rebounds, while Maryland is averaging a solid 43 rebounds. The Terps should dominate the boards which will allow them to dictate the play. They feature several players that are capable of big points, and they should have a productive night for their third straight game.

Prediction: Maryland Team Total: Over

Half-Time Side Pick
Rating:

I am sticking with Maryland on the halftime line. Maryland has been very productive in the first half, averaging 42 points in three games. Also, their first half defense has been outstanding, holding opponents to 25.7 points.

Prediction: Maryland
