Indiana basketball brings a five-game winning streak into College Park to face the Maryland Terrapins on Tuesday night. Can the Hoosiers keep the streak alive?

The last time Indiana basketball traveled to College Park, it wasn’t Trayce Jackson-Davis or Xavier Johnson that stepped up to the plate. It was Race Thompson. Thompson posted 18 points and 12 rebounds on 7-for-12 shooting in a 68-55 win against the Terrapins.

The Hoosiers have won three straight games against Maryland but have never beaten the Terrapins on the road in consecutive games and neither team has won three straight games by double digits. Since 2002, Indiana basketball is 1-3 in College Park and has lost by an average margin of 2.7 points.

Since beginning the season 8-0 and being ranked as high as No. 13 in the AP Polls, Maryland has lost seven of its last 13 matchups.

Indiana basketball @ Maryland best bet: Hoosiers +2.5 & Over 137.5

My best bet for Indiana basketball would be to bet on the Hoosiers to cover the 2.5-point spread and both teams to reach 70+ points to combine for over 137.5 points.

As much as I’d want to take the money line bet for Indiana, it is a huge risk for a team that is undefeated at home in conference play and the only home loss this season came against No. 16 UCLA in December.

A $100 parlay bet on the Hoosiers to cover the spread and over could potentially bring in a profit of $237.77. I’m hoping the Hoosiers come to play!
