Wisconsin at Purdue -4 O/U 125
Purdue has been solid again at home this year, piling up a 13-0 SU mark along with a 5-1 ATS record in conference play. But as strong as Mackey Arena has been, this is just as much a play against Wisconsin. The Badgers are coming off one their biggest win of the season; a come from behind effort over Ohio State, who was undefeated at the time. I respect Bo Ryan’s ability to coach and motivate but given the general nature of college basketball, it is doubtful UW is going to have their A-game once again this evening. And like a lot of teams in the Big Ten, Wisconsin isn’t nearly as strong on the highway with losses at Illinois, Michigan State, Penn State and an overtime win at Iowa. A victory over the Badgers would go a long way in improving Purdue’s stock and I think they get the job done tonight in West Lafayette.
