Maryland

The Terps got a lot of work done to this point. They have just the one loss, to Virginia, and have some nice wins including Oklahoma State on the road and against Iowa State on a neutral court.

This is a pretty talented team and most importantly they are healthy heading into the regular season – their best player Dez Wells has only played 6 games this season but got back into the lineup in their most recent game against Oakland.

He is critical to the the team’s long term success.

Wells’ absence has made it easier for freshman Melo Trimble to get comfortable at the college level.

He is averaging 15ppg and when you pair him with Jake Layman and Wells on the perimeter you have a versatile attack.

Razor Ray's Picks

The question for the Terps this season is going to be whether they have enough inside.

None of their inside players produce all that much but it hasn’t hurt them much. The key is those guys are going to have to be physical on the boards.

They can get the scoring elsewhere.

Michigan State

It is not a familiar site to see MSU have so many losses this early in the season. This team lost a ton from last year’s team and the roster they have now just doesn’t have enough offense I think to cruise.

They are going to have to grind out most games in the conference forcing other teams to match their level of physicality and intensity.

That is not to say their are not talented players on this team but I don’t see anyone who is going to be take in the first round of next year’s NBA draft.

The Spartans rely heavily on the trio of Travis Trice, Denzel Valentine and Brandon Dawson.

Dawson is one of the best rebounders in the nation (especially for a guy only 6’6”); Trice can be a dangerous shooter; and Valentine has a nice, diverse game.

All three are MSU calibre but the rest of the team is pretty light.

Dawson is questionable for this one and his status is important given the Spartans lack of depth inside.

NCAAB Handicapping Trends:

  • Under is 7-1 in MD last 8 road games.
  • Over is 7-2-1 in MD last 10 vs. Big Ten.
  • MSU are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 home games.
  • Under is 33-16 in MSU last 49 Tue. games. 

NCAAB Prediction:  Maryland +6

It is tough to call the outright upset here but I am going for it.

4* CBB Score prediction:  Maryland 71 – Michigan State 69

MSU is not what it used to be and Maryland is looking strong. As long as they are not overwhelmed they will cover.
