Purdue Seeking 20th in a Row

The Purdue Boilermakers are seeking their 20th straight win. That’s incredible following their 4-3 start to the season. Matt Painter looks to be in line to grab Big Ten Coach of the Year awards with his talented Boiler squad. Purdue is scoring 84 points per game, and allowing just 64 points per game. Purdue has a tough stretch as they are at Michigan State and Wisconsin in their next two games.

The Boilermakers are led by the scoring by Vincent and Carsen Edwards. The two are combining for more than 32 points per game. Isaac Haas is the big man inside for Purdue with 14.5 points and 5.4 rebounds per game. Purdue will reach the NCAA Tournament for the 30th time in school history, and they are in search of their 3rd trip to the Final Four.

Buckeyes Looking for Road Upset

The Ohio State Buckeyes are led by Chris Holtmann in his first season as the head coach in Columbus. The Buckeyes have brought a defensive focus this season, as they are allowing just over 66 points per game. The offense has been solid for Ohio State, as they are scoring nearly 78 points per game.

Keita Bates-Diop has been the man offensively for the Buckeyes. He is scoring 20.2 points per game, and adding nearly 9 rebounds per game. Jae’Sean Tate is second on the team with 12.8 points, while C.J. Jackson and Kaleb Wesson are coming for more than 24 points per game. Ohio State’s lone Big Ten loss was a home game against the Penn State Nittany Lions.

Boilermakers Top Buckeyes Close

What a huge game. The two top teams in the Big Ten get together for a monster conference game. Michigan State is trying to track them both down. A little more pressure on Purdue, as they are the home team here.  A win for Ohio State would be huge in the road, and possibly springboard them into a Top 10 ranking in the nation. The problem is – the home court of Purdue and the size of the Boilers will be too much for the Buckeyes. Purdue wins the game, but Ohio State covers the spread. Bet the Buckeyes.
