Michigan is 7-21 ATS in their last 28 games following an ATS win and 49-24-3 ATS in their last 76 Thursday games while the over is 16-5 in their last 21 road games. Maryland is 11-3 ATS in their last 14 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 games following an ATS loss.
I’m backing Maryland here. The reality is that the Terrapins are just a much better team at home than whatever they’ve been on the road this season, which honestly hasn’t been very much. Michigan’s stumbled on the road themselves and for whatever reason, it just feels like home court makes so much more of a difference in the Big Ten than any other conference. I’ll lay the reasonable number with Maryland here.
