This could be a semi elimination game in terms of bubble teams. I like the talent of Maryland more but winning on the road is never easy.
Truth be told I thought that Penn State had a worse record. They are far from elite but they win at home and if they keep doing that they can play this out a little longer.
The Terps broke a three game losing streak by beating the Badgers over the weekend. They have to prove they can win on the road though or else they can’t be taken seriously.
I love the steady hand of Anthony Cowan at the point. Still he is miscast as a lead scorer though he was money down the stretch against Wisconsin at the free throw line.
Kevin Huerter is an underrated player. He has good length on the perimeter and might be as good as any shooter in the league. He has really advanced as a sophomore.
Freshman Bruno Fernando gives the Terps an inside presence. He can rebound and he can make his foul shots so they can keep him on the court in most situations.
Penn State Nittany Lions
Penn State has won three of four including a surprising win at Ohio State. They are not great but perhaps they make some noise in the second half.
Tony Carr is as important to the Nittany Lions as any player in the league. He averages just under 20ppg while also boasting a 2:1 assist to turnover ratio. He is always capable of a big game.
The rest of the offense is balanced – four others in double figures. Penn State probably has enough firepower to scare most opponents in the league.
Mike Watkins is a true power forward and will battle with Fernando inside. He is a little more polished than the freshman and should have some success.

Free Maryland Terrapins vs. Penn State Nittany Lions NCAAB Prediction:
I would think that Penn State would be a very small favourite here. They play well at home and Maryland is no road juggernaut.
Still I like the talent of Maryland better so I think it is worth a shot to back the road team.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Maryland ATS
If the Terps are the favourite and it is small it is OK to back them in that spot too.
