Maryland Hopes for Repeat Vs Ohio State

Melo Trimble Maryland NCAAB

The No. 8 Maryland Terrapins recorded a big win over the No. 3-ranked Iowa Hawkeyes earlier in the week and will look to build some momentum when they visit the Ohio State Buckeyes Sunday afternoon.

Shark Bites
  • Buckeyes are 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 home games.
  • UNDER is 4-0-1 in Maryland’s last five road games.
  • UNDER is 5-1 in Maryland’s last six games overall.

Maryland, a 4.5-point road favorite at online shop BetOnline, enjoyed one of its best performances of the season when they hammered the Buckeyes by a score of 100-65 as a 10.5-point home favorite back on January 16. The victory snapped the Terrapins’ two-game losing skid to the Buckeyes that included a 16-point loss in 2013 and a 24-point loss last season.

At 6-3 SU (and ATS), the Buckeyes head into the contest just one game back of the Terrapins in the Big Ten standings. They have covered the spread in three consecutive conference games and have gone 4-0 SU (3-1 ATS) in four conference games on their home floor this season.

The Buckeyes will no doubt have revenge on their minds in this game and with the Terrapins off that big win against Iowa and keen to build some momentum and consistency, it should prove to be a close contest.
