What to Know
The #23 Wisconsin Badgers and the Maryland Terrapins will face off in a Big Ten clash at 7:30 p.m. ET Jan. 9 at Xfinity Center. The teams split their matchups last year, with Maryland winning the first 70-64 on the road and the Badgers taking the second 61-55.
Wisconsin was able to grind out a solid win over the Iowa Hawkeyes this past Thursday, winning 87-78. Wisconsin relied on the efforts of guard Jonathan Davis, who had 26 points and five assists along with nine rebounds, and forward Tyler Wahl, who had 16 points in addition to nine boards.
Meanwhile, the matchup between Maryland and the Illinois Fighting Illini this past Thursday was not particularly close, with Maryland falling 76-64. The Terrapins’ defeat shouldn’t obscure the performances of forward Donta Scott, who had 17 points in addition to seven rebounds, and guard Eric Ayala, who had 16 points.
Barring any buzzer beaters, the Badgers are expected to win a tight contest Sunday. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a two-game streak of ATS wins.
Wisconsin is now 12-2 while Maryland sits at 8-6. A couple numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Wisconsin enters the game with only 8.1 turnovers per game on average, good for second best in college basketball. Less enviably, Maryland is stumbling into the contest with the 24th fewest takeaways in college basketball, having accrued only 10.9 on average.
