#2 Iowa Hawkeyes -3.5
#2 Maryland Terrapins +3.5
If you want to see some tremendously talented teams, this is a game that you really shouldn’t miss out on. Both the Terrapins and the Hawkeyes clearly should have been in the NCAA Tournament, and it’s a shame that they aren’t playing against each other in the NIT Final, as we think that they are the best two teams left in the tournament. G Dez Wells has really shined over the course of the last several games, but he is going to have a really tough draw going against Iowa’s G Roy-Devyn Marble for the full 40 minutes. Expect that these two are going to end up going shot for shot against each other. The real equalizer, as it tends to be, is C Alex Len. Maryland’s big man was a bit inconsistent at times this season, but he came up with one of his biggest games of the year when it mattered most against the Alabama Crimson Tide. He had 15 points and 13 boards, but most importantly in that one, he blocked five shots, including the one that would have won the game for the Tide had it fallen with a few seconds left in the game. Honestly, we’re a bit surprised that the oddsmakers haven’t lined this game at a dead pick ’em, because we do genuinely think that it is a total tossup of a game.
