Last Saturday, Michigan was slapped back down by the college basketball lines. Minnesota jumped all over a Wolverine team that jumped all over them on January 6. Michigan remains a favorite in the Big Ten Conference. But we now know they’re not invincible. Michigan gets a chance to bounce back Tuesday against Maryland. The Terrapins are rebuilding after a stellar 2019-20 campaign. So far, they have proven to be outclassed. Big Ten opponents are difficult to beat with teams that are on the job training.
