Maryland Terrapins vs Michigan Wolverines 1/18/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Maryland Terrapins will meet with the Michigan Wolverines in a Big Ten Conference showdown in Crisler Center Ann Arbor, MI, on Tuesday, January 18, 2022, at 5:00 PM (EST). At halftime, Maryland topped Rutgers 38-27 at home on Saturday.

 

You’d think the Terps were finally on the right track after a good overtime triumph against Northwestern in their last match. Instead, they were outscored 43-21 in the second half, with Ron Harper Jr. dominating the Scarlet Knights with 31 points on 6-of-8 shooting from long range.

 

The Terps shot only 33% from the field and a pitiful 24% from the three-point range (6-of-25). The Terps were led by Eric Ayala (5-15 FG), who scored 13 points, and big Donta Scott, who scored 12. Rutgers, which isn’t known for its shooting, made 10-of-22 from long range.

 

The Terps face a difficult road to the NCAA Tournament. They’ll be lucky to secure an NIT spot with a record of 1-5 in the Big 10 and 108 in the current Net Rankings.

 

Qudus Wahab (6-11, 240) was expected to be a bigger player after transferring from Georgetown but he’s only generating 8.4 points and 6.5 rebounds a game. With 16 points and 5.0 rebounds per game, Ayala is the team’s leading scorer, but he’s shooting only 39.4 percent from the floor (36.7 percent 3pt).

 

  • The University of Maryland Terrapins is 6-12 ATS in their last 18 matches.
  • Maryland is 1-7 SU in their last 8 matches against Michigan.
  • The Terrapins are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 matches in the Big Ten Conference.

Maryland Terrapins vs Michigan Wolverines Predictions 1/18/2022

 

For approximately 3/4 of the game, Michigan fought hard against Illinois, but the Illini prevailed late to victory by 15 points. There was a dilemma, and it began when 7-1 Hunter Dickinson and reserve Brandon Johns were unable to play due to illness.

 

Dickinson’s defeat to Michigan (16.1 PPG, 8.8 RPG) was significant, especially since they lacked the size to face 7-foot Kofi Cockburn, who had 21 points and 10 rebounds. Devante Jones led the Wolverines with 17 points, six rebounds, and three steals. Michigan shot 37 percent from the field and hit only one of ten three-point attempts.

 

According to KenPom, the Wolverines are rated 32nd overall and 26th in Adjusted Offensive Efficiency. Michigan shoots 46.3 percent and scores 71.4 points per game (33.1 percent 3pt). On 41.2 percent shooting, they allow 66.9 points per game (29.1 percent 3pt).

 

The Wolverines dropped three consecutive games, beginning with a road loss to UCF (85-71), followed by an eight-point setback at Rutgers. COVID difficulties did not help matters, since they only played three matches in the previous 2 1/2f weeks.

 

  • The University of Michigan Wolverines is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 5 of Michigan’s last 5 matches against Maryland.
  • Michigan is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 matches in the Big Ten Conference.

Maryland Terrapins vs Michigan Wolverines. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Michigan Wolverines. Dickinson was on the verge of participating in the previous game. Michigan is overdue for a win in this game. Maryland won a double-overtime game on Wednesday, lost a hard Rutgers squad on Saturday, and is now back on the road.

 

Last year, Michigan annihilated them, and it wasn’t just because of Dickinson. For the Wolverines, this is a must-win match. There will be several adjustments when they appoint a new coach.

 

After facing Rutgers, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Michigan State, Ohio State, Iowa and Purdue before ultimately meeting Nebraska, this squad might truly fall apart. The Wolverines will win to a predicted score of 72-67 but will fail to cover.
