The Nebraska Cornhuskers will travel to College Park to meet the Maryland Terrapins in Big Ten play from the XFINITY Center on the BTN. Maryland leads the head-to-head series, 10-3, after winning four matchups in a row.

Nebraska dropped to 10-11 after losing to Northwestern in Lincoln. The Cornhuskers trailed the Wildcats by double figures at the break, and could not rally back, losing 78-63. Nebraska is scoring 66.1 points per game, while allowing 67.8 ppg, and shooting 44.1% from the floor.

Nebraska has dropped five of their first seven games here in 2023, and it’s unsure how much things improve for them this season. The Huskers defend at a solid rate, but they’re very limited offensively. Senior forward Derrick Walker has done his part, and after scoring 20 points against Penn State, he leads the Huskers in scoring (13.6) and rebounding (7.5). NDSU transfer Sam Griesel has been pretty solid as well, and he’s averaging 11.2 ppg, 5.4 rpg, and a team-lead of 4.1 apg. Junior guard Keisei Tominaga scored a season-high 22 points versus Northwestern last night, and he’s up to 10.6 ppg.

Maryland moved to 13-7 after beating Wisconsin at home. The Terrapins pulled away from the Badgers after break, and brought home an 18-point win. Maryland is scoring 70.4 points per game, while allowing 63.7 ppg, and shooting 45% from the floor.

Maryland has traded each of their last six games, and with a hot Indiana team set to come to town on Tuesday, they’ll need to buck that trend this weekend and take down Nebraska. Former Charlotte guard Jahmir Young has caught fire, and after scoring 20 or more in four of the last five games, he leads the Terps in scoring (15.9) and assists (3.1), while grabbing 5.1 rpg. Four-year starter Donta Scott double-doubled in the win over Wisconsin, and he’s now averaging 11.9 ppg and 6.3 rpg. 

Nebraska is 7-14 against the spread this season, with a 5-15-1 over/under record. Maryland is 13-7 ATS this year, with a 6-14 o/u record.

This is a very manageable spot for the Terps to win in at home, and they should have little trouble beating the Huskers straight up. Maryland’s assertive win over Wisconsin has made the margin look a bit stiff, but when you consider Nebraska’s last five conference losses have come by 11 points or more, it makes you want to roll with the cards and hope for the blowout here. The Terrapins enter with advantages of talent and homecourt, while Nebraska comes into College Park looking for answers. Take Maryland’s spread for this Big Ten matchup, and with both teams trending positively with the under, give that angle a look as well.
