Maryland vs Wisconsin Betting Prediction

Wisconsin started the season very strong and it looked like they were going to be one of the top teams in the Big Ten, but they struggled down the stretch and they have lost eight of their last 11 games. Maryland has also lost eight of their last 11 games, but they are over matched here. The Terrapins are only shooting 41% from the field, while Wisconsin is shooting 46%. Wisconsin won the only regular season meeting with Maryland by a score of 74-70 at home, but I think we are going to see a better performance from Wisconsin here. The Badgers are the better team and I like them to pull away in the second half.
