Betting Line: Wisconsin -5
Over/Under: 132 at Bovada
After suffering a recent two-game blight following its seven-match winning streak Maryland will look to get back on the winner’s list when they take on Wisconsin in a big NCAA fixture.
Maryland is looking good for the Big Dance at 17-5 and 8-3 in Big 10 play, but a win over a ranked team on the road in this game will look good on their resume. The Terrapins only gave up 57 points in their last game and for the season their defense has been the strength of the team ranking 37th in the nation giving up an average of only 65.6 ppg.
Maryland is 2-2 this season facing top 25 teams.
After losing four of five games Wisconsin has rebounded and they are currently riding a four-game winning streak. They are 15-6 overall and 7-3 in Big 10- play and with 10 games left in the regular season every game is a big one. Like the Terps the Badgers are 2-2 facing ranked teams this season. Also, like Maryland Wisconsin is led by their defense, as they rank tied for 10th in the nation in points allowed. In their four-game win streak, where they have not faced a top 25 team, they have given up an average of only 52.7 ppg.
This season Wisconsin is 80-2 at home and Maryland is 4-2 on the road.
This season Maryland is 11-10-1 ATS and they have an Over/Under record of 11-11 and BYU is at 12-9 ATS with an Over/Under record of 9-11.
These teams met on a few games back at Maryland where the Terrapins beat the Badgers 64-60.
Wisconsin is not only 4-1 ATS in their last five games facing Maryland, but they are 4-1 ATS in their last five games against them on the road.
In snapping their two-game slid in their last game Maryland was at home and they beat Northwestern 70-52. The Terps got off to a great start in the game jumping out to a 33-22 halftime lead and for the game their defense got it done, big time, holding Northwestern to a FG% of only 31% while they shot a decent 46.3% from the field.
Bruno Fernando led Maryland in the win over Northwestern going for 22 points on 9/16 shooting and also grabbed 10 rebounds and Jalen Smith was the only other player for the squad to go four double figures with 14 points. Anthony Cowan Jr. leads the Terps in scoring on the season at 17 ppg, but only went for eight points in the last game and has failed to score over eight points in two of his last three games. Fernando is averaging a double-double on the season at 14.9 ppg 10.3 rpg and he has four double-doubles in his last four games.
