Michigan State vs Maryland College Basketball Betting Preview

Michigan State has been quite inconsistent over their last four games. While they did beat #8 Wisconsin on the road by double digits, they also lost to unranked Northwestern at home. The Spartans are just 2-2 in their last four games and face off against a Maryland team they are much better than on paper. The Spartans are fully healthy but have struggled with their offensive consistency of late. If Michigan State can find a way to get their offense going, they should be able to take this game without a doubt.

For as inconsistent as Michigan State has been lately, Maryland has been even worse over the course of the season. Maryland has lost close to then #23 Wisconsin and beat #17 Illinois last week by 16 points. Maryland has also been blown out by Rutgers, Michigan, and Indiana by 13 in their last game. The Terrapins are a solid offensive team averaging over 70 points per game, but they also give up over 69 points per game. Maryland to this point in the season, either has both sides of the ball clicking, or nothing working so they are as volatile of a team as any in the country.

Michigan State vs Maryland Prediction | College Basketball Betting Picks

With the way Maryland’s defense has played this season, it’s very likely that Michigan State is going to be able to score in bunches. Whether Maryland can match their scoring is the big question. Maryland’s volatility on offense makes the total tough to bet on. With all the information we know about recent betting results for these two teams however, it’s clear a safe pick is Michigan State to cover.

A spread just over three points is incredibly low for a team like Michigan State who has been nearly automatic at covering on the road this season. It’s tough to see Maryland’s offense, which just put up 55 against Indiana, getting much more to fall for them against a better Spartans team. For that reason, it seems pretty safe that Michigan State will win by four or more.
