The Terrapins are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 neutral site games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Hoosiers are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 neutral site games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The under is 17-8-1 in Terrapins last 26 overall. The over is 4-0 in Hoosiers last 4 overall. The favorite is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
The Indiana Hoosiers are probably the more talented team, but the way they finished up the regular season left a weird taste in my mouth, and they’re not a team I’m eager to back. Maryland beat Indiana in the only meeting back in January and is playing the better ball overall right now. Give me the Terps, as I don’t get a warm and fuzzy feeling from the Hoosiers.
