Maryland continues to thrive at the end of games, storming back to beat Minnesota by one point and improve to 5-2 in close contests.

Is that a sign of what’s to come or are the Terps due for regression against Michigan State? Let’s dive in.

How Odds Have Moved

Despite getting two-thirds of the bets, early action pushed Maryland down from -3 to -2.5. The total has remained steady at 138. — Steve Petrella

When Michigan State Has the Ball

In a loss to Maryland two weeks ago, Michigan State made just 4 of 19 attempts from beyond the arc. The Terps are third in the Big Ten in perimeter defense and had one of their best defensive days of the season in limiting a Spartans team that normally shoots 35% from long distance.

Cassius Winston committed four turnovers while shooting just 5 of 13 in that loss. But Michigan State should have no issues getting to the point of attack, as Maryland has a defensive steal rank of 316th in the nation.
