North Carolina has only managed to cover the posted spread once in its past seven games against Maryland, and that was in an 87-76 home victory as a 6.5-point favorite last February. Prior to that, they hadn't covered against Maryland since back in 2006.
When the Terrapins and Tar Heels met earlier this season North Carolina won 83-74 on the road but didn't cover the 11.5-point spread. The Tar Heels were actually down 40-37 at halftime in that contest, but surged in the second half to get the SU victory.
Tyler Zeller picked up 22 points for North Carolina in that win in early February, with John Henson adding 17 points and 12 rebounds, and Harrison Barnes scoring 18 points. Terrell Stoglin tossed in a team-high 20 points in that loss for the Terrapins.
Each of the last seven matchups between North Carolina and Maryland paid off as OVER results in totals betting.
The Tar Heels enter Wednesday's matchup at 25-4 straight up and 15-13 against the spread, and they're tied with Duke at 12-2 atop the ACC standings. North Carolina ran its winning streak to five games last time out with a 54-51 road win over Virginia.
The Terrapins are just 16-12 straight up and 11-12-1 against the spread on the season, and they're 6-8 against ACC opponents this year. Maryland lost 63-61 on the road against Georgia Tech in their last game.
