The Terps have talent but they are playing shorthanded. They can make good teams work for a win but they are not good on the road.
The Buckeyes just knocked off the top team in the nation so this game screams letdown. They are very well coached though.
Maryland just whacked Iowa at home but they have not been strong on the road. They do have very good shooting and defensive numbers though so perhaps things could tip.
Anthony Cowan is one of the best point guards in the B10. He is probably being asked to score more than is ideal but I like the way he controls the action from the 1 spot.
Bruno Fernando has been a godsend inside. The freshman has great size and knows how to use it. He also knows to stay as close to the paint as possible.
I was high on Maryland coming into the season but without Justin Jackson they are more wild card then contender. You can’t totally discount them but be careful.
Ohio State Buckeyes
The Buckeyes did more than just beat Michigan State over the weekend. They dominated, winning both halves while only turning the ball over 6 times in total.
Keita Bates-Diop was a monster scoring 32 points. I am not sure how much they guarded each other but he dramatically outplayed Miles Bridges and is the frontrunner for B10 POY
With KBD the alpha Ohio State has nice depth around him. Three others score in double figures and they have a couple really good outside shooters.
Kaleb Wesson is big body who is showing promise. He can be a contributor even though he is not asked to do much more than rebound and patrol the paint.

Free Maryland Terrapins vs Ohio State Buckeyes NCAAB Prediction:
Ohio State has to be the favourite here but I think these teams are pretty close. Hopefully the market disagrees
I am hoping the market over values the big win so we can swoop in on Maryland. Though road teams in conference play are tricky.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Maryland +5
Ohio State gets the home win but they are not going to dominate. Everything broke right for them against the Spartans but they are not really that level of team right now.
