On Sunday, the #14 Maryland Terrapins visit the #12 Indiana Hoosiers in Big Ten basketball action. The Terrapins (24-6) are in second place in the Big Ten and just blew out the Fighting Illini of Illinois on Thursday, 81-55. The Hoosiers (24-6) are in first place in the Big Ten and just knocked off #16 Iowa on the road on Tuesday, 81-78. The full NCAAB betting odds for this one will be up shortly.

Why should you bet on the Terrapins?

No one was surprised to see Maryland beat Illinois at home, but the ferocity of the win showed that the Terrapins had found their best form in weeks on Senior Night. Melo Trimble finally returned to form on offense, and Jake Layman joined him in pouring in 18 points apiece, as the Terrapins never trailed, and the team that once was #2 in the AP Top 25 looked dangerous again. That renewed confidence could well carry over into a victory in Bloomington on Sunday afternoon.

Why should you put your money on Indiana?

Now that Indiana has captured the Big Ten title outright, it is possible that there could be a little bit of a letdown in the regular season finale. However, this will be the Hoosiers’ Senior Night, and they are coming in with a hot Yogi Ferrell (20 points at Iowa, including a big 3 with 37 seconds left). Troy Williams found his shooting touch again, posting 15 points. This team has played lights out since January, and they will be able to continue this momentum going into the regular season finale — and the Big Ten tournament, in which they will hold the top seed.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

I like Indiana to continue their home hot streak and knock off Maryland, 72-68.
