The Hoosiers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 conference games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win. The Terrapins are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games following a ATS loss and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a S.U. loss.
The Terps are the favrotie? This doesn't make sense to me. Maryland has looked awful pretty much all year and has lost seven straight. Indiana is capable of being a scoring machine and still has a shot at a bowl game. I'll gladly take the free points and the better team.
