The UMBC Retrievers and Maine Black Bears face off on Thursday in a college basketball showdown at Memorial Gym. Let’s look at the betting matchup and give a free UMBC vs Maine prediction.

UMBC Has Won Two Straight

UMBC has won two straight games and they have a lot of confidence heading into this game. In the last game against Albany, the offense scored 80 points and they ended up winning by five points. Regimantas Ciunys had a strong game putting up 22 points and five rebounds. UMBC on the season is averaging 79.1 points while their defense is giving up 82.5 points per game. Dion Brown is averaging 18.9 points while shooting 50.4 percent from the field and 37.3 percent from behind the three point line. 

Maine has Lost Three Games in a Row

Maine can’t have a lot of confidence heading into this game and they have lost three straight games. In the last game against Vermont, the offense scored only 57 points and they ended up losing by 11 points. Kellen Tynes had a strong game putting up 17 points and six rebounds. Maine on the season is averaging 67.6 points while their defense is giving up 67.3 points per game. The offense is ranked 322nd while the defense is ranked 62nd in the league. Peter Filipovity is averaging 13.3 points while shooting 55.9 percent from the field. Maine will meet NJIT after this one.

UMBC vs Maine Betting Prediction

This is a matchup between a good offense in UMBC and a good defense in Maine. Maine’s offense only scored 57 points in the last game and I really don’t trust their offense here. UMBC is averaging 79.1 points per game and they are going to have no issue running up the score here. Maine isn’t going to have an answer, and UMBC will get the job done. Back UMBC against the spread.
