Ohio Bobcats vs. Maryland Terrapins Betting Odds

Both teams were triumphant in their last game. The Terrapins barely escaped the Illinois Fighting Illini 92-91, while the Bobcats won big over the Coppin State Eagles 80-37.

Ohio dominated every stat category in the game. They had an effective field goal percentage of 0.478 (below their season average of 0.530) and an offensive rebounding percentage of 36.4 (above their season average of 19.4). Coppin State put up marks of 0.238 and 18.4, respectively, for those same stats. The Terrapins, on the other hand, knocked down 14 of their 19 free throws (73.7 percent) and held the Fighting Illini to an offensive rebounding percentage of 21.2 (below their season average of 36.4). Anthony Cowan played well for Maryland with 27 points and six assists. Ohio, meanwhile, was led by Kevin Mickle, who contributed 15 points and five rebounds.

The game should be a matchup of strength against strength as the high-powered offense of Maryland takes on the stingy defense of Ohio. Since the 2016-17 season, the Terrapins rank 41st in offensive efficiency, while the Bobcats are 56th in defensive efficiency. Furthermore, the Bobcats, who rank 271st in free throw attempt (FTA) rate (0.220), will face off against the Terrapins, who rank 10th in opponents’ FTA rate (0.216).
