Michigan State is coming off an 83-67 win over Michigan in its last game at home on January 29th. Michigan State has now won three of its last five games overall, but the Spartans did drop in the AP rankings to #13. Michigan State is 16-4 overall, 7-2 in conference play, and a solid 12-8-0 against the spread this season. Michigan State will face Maryland one more time this season at home on March 6th. Michigan State's leading scorer so far this season has been F Gabe Brown, who has scored 13.2 points per game for the Spartans. F Marcus Bingham Jr leads the team in rebounds per game and G Tyson Walker leads the team in assists per game with 4.9. Michigan State as a team has scored 74.7 points per game and has shot the ball at a 46.7% clip from the field. Michigan State has also allowed 65.7 points per game to its opponents.
Maryland is coming off a 68-55 loss to Indiana in its last game at home on January 29th. It has not been an easy season for Danny Manning's Terrapins as Maryland is 3-7 in conference play and has lost three of its last five games. Maryland does have the upset win over Illinois, but that was in a game that Kofi Cockburn did not play in. Maryland is 11-10 overall this season and has been a bad cover team, owning an 8-13-0 against the spread record. Maryland's leading scorer so far this season has been G Eric Ayala, who has scored 15.8 points per game. F Donta Scott leads the team in rebounds per game with 6.5. Maryland as a team has scored 70.1 points per game and has shot the ball at a 42.6% clip from the field. Maryland has also allowed 69.0 points per game to its opponents.
Michigan State is a 4.5-point favorite and the total is set at 138.5. Maryland has a ton of talent but it just has not been a consistent product this season. Michigan State is in danger of being in a letdown spot but I do not think the Spartans let up in this one. I like Michigan State as the road favorite here.
