Just because the today is the final day of the NFL regular season, doesn’t mean we should ignore college basketball.
In fact, there are some great betting spots in college basketball that I think we should take advantage of.
One of them comes in a pivotal Big Ten showdown between Ohio State and Maryland.
Ohio State is looking to bounce back from its first conference loss of the season to Purdue, while Maryland is looking to climb out of the basement of the Big Ten, it sits with a 1-3 conference record.
Let’s dive into the odds for the game and then I’ll give you my best bet.

Ohio State vs. Maryland Prediction and Pick
The Buckeyes have one big problem this season that’s hard to look past. They can’t perform on the road. Almost every single metric you look at gets significantly worse when they play on the road compared to at home.
For example, their effective field goal percentage drops 6.1% on the road compared to playing at home. Their opponents effective field goal percentage increases 5.6% on the road compared to at home.
They might be able to get away with this issues against weaker opponents, but I think Maryland is going to get the better of them today.
The Terps may not excel in any one specific area, but they rank inside the top 100 in most statistics. They’re the kind of team that will take advantage of a squad having an off day, and that’s what I expect from Ohio State.
Until the Buckeyes prove otherwise, fade away while they’re on the road.
