Ohio State vs. Maryland prediction and odds for Sunday, January 8

Just because today is the last day of the NFL regular season doesn’t mean we have to ignore college basketball.

In fact, there are some great college basketball betting spots that I think we should take advantage of.

One of them comes in a crucial showdown between Ohio State and Maryland.

Ohio State is looking to rebound from its first conference loss of the season to Purdue, while Maryland is looking to climb out of the Big Ten basement it sits with a 1-3 conference record.

Let’s dive into the odds of the game, then I’ll give you my best bet.

Ohio State vs. Maryland Prediction and Picks

The Buckeyes have a big problem this season that’s hard to ignore. They cannot perform on the road. Almost every metric you look at gets significantly worse when playing on the road versus home.

For example, their effective field goal percentage drops 6.1% on the road compared to playing at home. The effective field goal percentage of their opponents increases by 5.6% on the road compared to home.

They might be able to get away with those issues against weaker opponents, but I think Maryland are going to get the better of them today.

Terps may not excel in one specific area, but they rank in the top 100 in most stats. They’re the kind of team that benefits from a team off, and that’s what I expect from Ohio State.

Until the Buckeyes prove otherwise, disappear while on the road.

Game odds are updated periodically and are subject to change.
