At full strength these are probably the best two teams in the Big Ten. Maryland is especially impressive when clicking.
Both are looking up at Iowa and Indiana at the top of the standings though. This one is important.
The Terps have only one conference loss but they are frustrating with their play, a lot more than they should be given their key contributors have experience.
The most key among them is PG Melo Trimble, who is not having a great sophomore campaign. That might be the answer.
Diamond Stone is really coming on as a force in the middle. He is a load in the middle that few teams have an answer for but he also has to stay on the floor.
I think Maryland was hoping to get more from Rasheed Sulaimon. He has been shooting well this season but defers too much. He leads in court time but is just 5th in scoring.
Maryland has a strong record but their best basketball might still be ahead of them.
Michigan State Spartans
The Spartans were a surprise top ranked team early but now they are just focusing on getting a win. They have lost their last two league games.
All everything Denzel Valentine is back but the Spartans have lost Lourawls Nairn to injury. Nairn is a nice player but Valentine is a player of the candidate so I guess they will take it.
I love Valentine’s game but it would be great if some other players could make things happen too. Even though he is a willing passer they seem lost on possessions where he is not engaged.
MSU has enough size to really defend the rim this season and are among the better defensive teams in the league. Frosh Deyonta Davis is averaging almost two blocks a game and providing a presence up front.
This game is a lot more important for the home team and I am confident the coach will have them foaming at the mouth.

Free CBB Prediction:
I like Maryland a lot for this one because I think the Spartans are still overrated. They are in a funk too.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: OVER 143.5
However, betting against the Spartans at home is not the most comforting, especially when they have their back against the wall.
