The No. 22 Ohio State Buckeyes will begin a four-game stretch in the span of a week when they head on the road for a matchup with the Maryland Terrapins on Sunday afternoon.
Ohio State (18-7, 11-5 Big Ten) is coming off a huge victory over the Illinois Fighting Illini on the road earlier this week to keep their hopes of winning the conference regular season title more realistic. The Buckeyes are in a four-way battle for the top spot in the Big Ten, and the continued excellence of EJ Liddell will be key down the stretch.
Maryland (13-15, 5-12 Big Ten) is coming off a 10-point road loss to the Indiana Hoosiers on Thursday night. The Terrapins’ biggest issues have come on the defensive end where they rate outside the top 100 in KenPom’s adjusted efficiency. Fatts Russell and Eric Ayala are both averaging a little more than 14 points per game this season.

This is not the most advantageous betting spot for the Buckeyes, but I’ll suggest taking them anyways. They are coming off a huge win, making this perfect for a potential letdown, but Ohio State cannot afford overlooking an opponent if they want to keep the goal of winning the conference’s regular season title alive. Maryland is just 8-8 at home this season, and the Buckeyes should have enough motivation to cover this number.
