Maryland will be looking to add a marquee win to its resume when it travels to Columbus to face off with #16 Ohio State on Sunday afternoon.
The Terrapins are currently sitting at .500 overall this season after losing four of their last six games. Ohio State will be looking to bounce back from a loss at Purdue and remain unbeaten at home this season.
Maryland has not been able to get into any sort of rhythm this season. The Terrapins got off to an 8-4 start this season, but only two of those wins came against quality opponents. They dropped six of their first seven Big Ten games, with the lone win coming in double overtime on the road against Northwestern.
Maryland put together its best stretch of the season two weeks ago, recording consecutive wins over then #17 Illinois and Rutgers. The Terrapins were unable to build on that momentum, losing to Indiana and #13 Michigan State in their last two games.
They have struggled to shoot the ball well this season, which has led to a ranking of No. 100 in KenPom’s offensive ratings. Maryland is knocking down just 31.6% of its 3-point attempts, which is good for No. 273 nationally. They will be going up against an Ohio State defense that is No. 85 in adjusted efficiency.
Senior guard Eric Ayala leads the Terrapins with 15.7 points and 4.7 rebounds per game.
Ohio State Buckeyes
The #16 Ohio State will be hoping to continue its winning ways at home, as the Buckeyes are a perfect 9-0 in front of their home crowd this season. They had their three-game winning streak snapped in an 81-78 loss to No. 6 Purdue last Sunday, but they easily covered the spread as 9-point underdogs.
Ohio State has been one of the best offensive teams in the country, ranked No. 9 in adjusted efficiency. The Buckeyes have been shooting the ball well from everywhere on the court, ranked No. 14 in effective field goal percentage. They are also doing a decent job of limiting turnovers and grabbing offensive rebounds.
Ohio State forward E.J. Liddell has quietly been a contender for the Wooden Award this season, averaging 19.7 points and 7.5 rebounds per game. He is joined in double figures by guard Malaki Branham, who is scoring 10.6 points.

4* Free Maryland vs. Ohio State CBB Betting Pick: Ohio State ATS
This is an excellent scheduling spot for Ohio State, which is what provides value on the Buckeyes in this game.
They were scheduled to face Iowa earlier this week, but that game was postponed. Instead, they will enter this game on a full week of rest, which is a critical advantage at this stage of the season.
Maryland has been getting beat up by physical teams lately, losing four of its last six games. The Terrapins do not have enough firepower to hang with Liddell under normal circumstances; they certainly can’t pull off a stunner on the road with Ohio State’s rest advantage.
Give me the Buckeyes to stay unbeaten at home and cover in this one.
