The Maryland Terrapins have been the better and more consistent team this season, so them being favored at home here makes sense. However, I'm not sure you want to step in front of the Michigan State Spartans right now, a club that's fresh off wins over Illinois and Ohio State. Tom Izzo teams usually play their best when March arrives and it appears its about that time. I'll take the free bucket with MSU on the road.
