It’s Fat Tuesday and Big Ten women’s basketball fans have an opportunity to be absolute gluttons Tuesday night with Iowa vs Maryland. The Hawkeyes travels to take on the Terrapins in a game that features two of the top three teams in the conference.

Given the small separation between these teams in the polls, the tiny spread for the contest at legal major online North American sportsbooks is fitting. The total for this contest might be worth some of bettors’ bankrolls.

Handicapping Iowa vs Maryland

Iowa has been on a roll over its last 10 games offensively, averaging 90.6 points per contest in that stretch. At the same time, the Hawkeyes average conceding 12 more points per game on the road than they do in Iowa City.

In the first meeting between these teams, Iowa’s pair of Caitlin Clark and Monica Czinano combined for 70 points. Getting the win will depend on them repeating that performance. By the same token, Maryland has to limit their effectiveness to pull off this slight upset.

The totals at the books are slightly above projections for this game. However, these teams are more than capable of getting to 164 or more points if they have good nights from the field. The over might be worth a look from bettors.
