March Madness First Round Picks

Maryland vs. UConn

The 7 seed UConn Huskies see the 10 seed Maryland Terrapins Saturday in the first round of the of the NCAA Tournament at Mackey Arena in West Lafayette, Indiana. UConn and Maryland are both powerhouse schools from powerhouse conferences. Maryland has seen a lot of good teams this year playing in the Big 10 and are capable of beating a lot of good teams.

UConn is backed by standout James Bouknight who can absolutely get after it. Dan Hurley is the head coach of the Huskies, and he knows how to win games. On paper, this is definitely a favorable matchup for UConn, but the Huskies are still too sketchy to trust completely. I’m going to back the Big 10 team in Maryland and take the points. Don’t be surprised if you see the terps advancing to the next round. ROLL TERPS!

The Pick: Maryland + 3 @ -110
