Maryland vs. Indiana Pick
Which team will pick up an important Big Ten win when Indiana plays host to Maryland tonight at 7PM ET?
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Maryland is favored on the road, as the Terrapins are getting odds of -1 point against Indiana. The over/under total for the game is listed at 141 points. Today’s game will take place from Assembly Hall in Bloomington, Indiana and will air live on FS1.
Maryland is coming off a win at home over Minnesota, but the Terps are just 2-3 in their last five games. Maryland is 15-6 overall, 4-4 in the Big Ten and 11-6 against the spread. The Terrapins are averaging 76.8 points per game on offense this year while giving up 66.9 per contest on defense. Anthony Cowan is leading Maryland with 16.3 points, 4.7 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game while Kevin Huerter is adding 14.1 points and 5.3 rebounds per contest.
Indiana had a three-game win streak snapped at Michigan State on Friday, losing 85-57. The Hoosiers are 11-8 overall, 4-3 in the Big Ten and 9-10 against the spread. IU is averaging 73.3 points per game on offense while allowing 71.5 per game on defense. Juwan Morgan has been leading Indiana with 14.8 points and 7.2 rebounds per game, but he is doubtful to play tonight due to an ankle injury. Robert Johnson is adding 14 points and 4.4 rebounds per game.
Maryland has won three of the last four meetings with Indiana and I think the Terps are the play tonight. Indiana looked lost without Morgan against the Spartans, as he played just 16 minutes. Despite recent losses, Maryland has been good at the betting window. The Terps are 6-2 ATS in their last eight, including a cover at Michigan last Monday. The public betting is slightly with Maryland as well.
