This is a big spread to cover in a conference teams but the Terrapins have crushed much better teams at home, while the Cornhuskers have been miserable at far worse squads. The Terrapins are nasty defensively and are improving on the offensive end, while Nebraska is mediocre on both ends of the court. I'm siding with Maryland in this spot as it looks to have blowout written all over it.
