The Terrapins are 4-1 ATS in their last five games versus the Big Ten. Maryland is 4-10-1 ATS in its last 15 home games.
The Terrapins are a better offensive team than Indiana and only a tick worse defensively, while they come into this game hot with four straight wins including the last two by double digits on the road.
