Why Michigan State can cover

Michigan State will be happy to return home, where it has won seven of its last eight games. The Spartans' lone loss during that stretch came against top-ranked Purdue on Jan. 16, but they covered the 3.5-point spread in that setback. They have responded with home wins over then-No. 23 Rutgers and Iowa, using a pair of late buckets to get past the Hawkeyes. 

Senior guard Tyson Walker leads Michigan State with 13.8 points and 2.6 assists per game, while senior forward Joey Hauser is averaging 13.0 points and 7.3 rebounds. Junior guard A.J. Hoggard has been a key contributor as well, averaging 12.5 points, 5.7 assists and 3.7 boards. Michigan State has won 10 of the last 14 meetings between these teams, covering the spread in four of its last five home games against the Terrapins. 

Why Maryland can cover

Maryland is one of the hottest teams in the conference right now, having won four straight games following its 81-46 win at Minnesota on Saturday.

They have held opponents to fewer than 60 points 11 times this season, limiting Minnesota to 34.2% shooting and forcing 16 turnovers. 

Michigan State has been struggling offensively, failing to surpass the 70-point mark in seven straight games. The Spartans shot just 34.5% from the floor in their loss to Rutgers on Saturday, knocking down 19.0% of their 3-pointers. Maryland has four players scoring in double figures, paced by senior guard Jahmir Young's 16.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game.
