Northwestern caught Rutgers at its very worst Thursday to score an 83-61 win over the Scarlet Knights. Can the Wildcats continue their NCAA Tournament-bound season with an upset of 3rd-seeded Maryland this evening?

 Northwestern vs. Maryland

If college basketball had a mercy rule, last night's matchup between Northwestern (22-10 SU, 19-10 ATS) and Rutgers would have been called off in the first half. The Wildcats went on a 31-0 run vs. the Scarlet Knights on their way to an 83-61 victory as 8 point favorites to sweep three from Rutgers this year, the final halting a 4-game run of 'under' winners in Northwestern games.

Maryland (24-7 SU, 17-11-1 ATS) hasn't gotten past the second game of the Big Ten Tournament since joining the conference a few years back. Each time the Terrapins ran into Michigan State teams that held on for close wins to at least get Maryland backers the cash. The Terps picked up a nice win at Northwestern as 2 point underdogs in the only meeting between the schools this campaign.

After opening as a pick, BetOnline shifted the spread to Maryland -1½ with 133½ for the total. This is where Northwestern's magic runs out with my free college basketball pick on Mark Turgeon and the Terps.
