Indiana vs. Maryland Prediction

I’m on the under in this game. This to me feels like a first to 65 wins kind of game if we even make it to that point. Maryland prides itself on its defense and it’s not a pretty offensive unit by any stretch, but Indiana’s offense at times looks like it’s given up on the season. If you like ugly basketball, this will probably be the game for you. Give me the under here.
