College Basketball Betting Trends: Maryland vs. Clemson

In the lone ACC matchup of the night, the Maryland Terrapins (13-9, 3-5 ACC) travel to Littlejohn Coliseum in South Carolina to take on the Clemson Tigers (11-11, 3-5 ACC).

Both teams enter this game on 2-game losing streaks and find themselves in the middle of the ACC standings.  Clemson has lost back-to-back games in close fashion, losing by 4 at Virginia and then getting downed by Virginia Tech by 2 over the weekend.  Likewise, Maryland is coming off a narrow loss at Miami followed by a great effort against North Carolina before ultimately losing by 9 points.

Clemson will welcome back Milton Jennings, a 6’9″ junior forward averaging nearly 9 points and over 5 rebounds a game, from academic suspension.  Jennings, who has missed the last two games, is not likely to start on Tuesday (2/7) but is expected to see game action.  His status could change before tip-off though, so be sure to take a look at Sports Insights’ College Basketball Injury page for the late, breaking news.

Clemson opened as a 7.5 point favorite at the market-setting CRIS sportsbook and, according to Sports Insights’ College Basketball Betting Trends, is currently receiving just 30% of spread bets.  Despite the public pounding the visiting Terrapins, the line has jumped to Clemson -9 across most of the sports betting marketplace.  This reverse-line movement indicates that early, sharp money is on the hometown Tigers.

To further illustrate this claim, there were two Smart Money moves triggered on Clemson at both -8 and -9, in addition to the year’s best Steam Move triggered at Carib (63-30, +27.1 units).  All-Pro members are able to view these College Basketball Betting System Plays by logging-in to their SportsInsights.com account.
