Our Deep-3 picks are 8-1 this week and we’ve got the latest version right here:

The #22 ranked Indiana Hoosiers (12-3 / 3-1) will be looking to rebound from their loss to the undefeated #2 ranked Michigan Wolverines, as they make the trip to College Park to face the Maryland Terrapins (13-3 / 4-1) on Friday evening.

In one of two Big 10 Conference games within the small Friday night slate, the Hoosiers had their 7-game win streak snapped last time out against the Wolverines in a 74 – 63 this past Sunday. Freshman guard Romeo Langford contributed 17 points to earn his 15th consecutive game with double-digits.

The Terrapins will be putting their 4-game win streak on the line for the 7 p.m. start at XFINITY Center, a place where Maryland has gone 9  – 2 in 11 home games. Maryland returns home after two road Big 10 wins, both in convincing fashion over Rutgers and Minnesota.

The Hoosiers Look To Rebound From Their First Big 10 Loss

The Hoosiers opened Big 10 play with 2 wins back when the conference all played 2 games within their non-conference schedules in early December.

Indiana rode those 2 early Big 10 wins to an eventual 7-game win-streak, which the #2 ranked Wolverines snapped on Sunday, despite the efforts of freshman guard Romeo Langford and Juwan Morgan, who combined for 42 points, 14 rebounds, while going 14 for 33 from the floor in the losing effort.

No team has yet to keep Langford from double-digit nights in his opening campaign with the Hoosiers, and his 17 & 6 night makes it 15 of 15 for his collegiate career.

Senior Juwan Morgan and Langford have been 1 & 2 on the scoring chart all season long, and they’re the only Hoosiers averaging double-digits for the year.

Morgan put up a team-leading 25 points against Michigan, which brought his average up to 16.7 PPG, which only has him 1.5 points behind Romeo.

Hoosier’s Head Coach Archie Miller is in year 2 after taking over for Tom Crean, and his bench production.. wait, can we call it that? Talk about a let-down man, and it showed last time out against the Wolverines with so many injuries.

Here are your bench points for Miller’s 3 subs in the Michigan game:

(Cricket) (Cricket – Cricket)

Ouch!

That stands for NADA! Zero! Zilchamundo baby and I don’t even know if that’s a damn word, so let’s make it one now LOL

I mean it is hard enough to compete on a nightly basis in the Big 10, but if you are not going to get a single point from your subs, the rest of the season is going to be long and difficult. All 3 players only attempted 3 shots in the entire game from the bench, which makes Langford and Morgan having to basically carry the team, which they have certainly done a decent job of so far. How they fare the rest of the way, will greatly determine how far this Hoosiers program can go, but the 12-3 start is obviously pretty nice. We’ll see how long it lasts.

The Terps Look To Build On A 4-Game Win Streak

Maryland has managed a 6 – 2 record since suffering their first Big 10 loss to Purdue back on December 6. After 3 straight conference wins and the December 1 win over Penn State, the Terps sit at 4 – 1 in Big 10 Conference play and have 13 wins in the books already.

Ironically, Maryland sat at 13 – 3 a season ago, but we all know that didn’t work out so well as the Terps missed out on a post-season appearance after 3 straight years in the big dance under head coach Mark Turgeon.

Turgeon is in year 8 with the program, and he is hoping to avoid a 6 – 9 finish to repeat last season’s fall that left Maryland at 19 – 12 to conclude his 7th season.

While the Indiana stand-out Romeo Langford has accomplished the same, junior forward Anthony Cowan Jr. has also managed to be a double-digit scorer in every outing of the season. Cowan put up 27 points last time out against Minnesota in the 82 – 67 convincing win over the Gophers, which now has his season average sitting at a team-leading 17.2 PPG.

Cowan’s junior year is obviously going well, but sophomore forward Bruno Fernando seems to be snatching up the headlines on a nightly basis too. Fernando has 8 double-doubles to his credit and is averaging a double-double with no sophomore slump in sight. The 6-10 Luanda, Angola native is putting up 14.2 PPG and 10.1 RBG, and his 2.3 blocks a night sure don’t hurt either.

Freshman forward Jalen Smith is the last of the trip of double-digit scorers for the Terps, as he is nabbing 13 PPG in just under 26 minutes a night. His 6.9 boards a night shows his activity around the glass, and he put up a season-high 21 points last time out in the win against Minnesota.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

With so many absences and Indiana trying to rely on 3 players to carry the entire load, I just don’t think they can manage to cover the 5 points in College Station tonight.

I see the Terps coming away with a low-scoring 68 – 60 win, with plenty of cushion on that total to stay under, which comes up next.

Maryland -5 is the 4* Play on the Side.

Prediction: Maryland -5

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Does that say 144? Really? So where do we see 144 points coming from?

I don’t see it, and as I stated above I expect a low-scoring win for the Terps at home as they will find their 10th home win of the season tonight, and extend their Big 10 record to 5 – 1.

The Under 144 is the 4* Play on the Total.

Prediction: Under 144
