Sportsbooks and fans who bet sports online are shifting their attention from football to basketball, as we’re approaching the stretch run toward March Madness.Tuesday’s NCAA basketball odds feature a pair of teams looking to keep their momentum going.

Purdue vs Ohio State betting – Tuesday, February 3 at 7:00 p.m. ET
The Boilermakers (17-4, 6-2) have rattled off six victories in a row while leading the nation in opposition field-goal percentage. This is a very crucial portion of the schedule for Purdue, which follows this game with a trip to Illinois and a home game against Penn State; these are the only teams to beat the Boilermakers in Big Ten play.
However, they still face a stiff test against the Buckeyes (15-5, 5-4), who followed up losses at Illinois and against Michigan State with wins over Michigan and at Indiana. Ohio State has been very inconsistent all season, beating Miami and Notre Dame earlier in the season, but it has failed all major Big Ten tests to date.
The Buckeyes have had the Boilermakers’ number recently, winning nine of their last 10 meetings with Purdue. Logic says the Boilermakers will be looking past the Buckeyes, who need a big conference win to strengthen their case for a tournament bid. Bet on Ohio State to halt Purdue’s winning streak at six games.
Marquette vs DePaul betting – Tuesday, February 3 at 9:00 p.m. ET
The Golden Eagles (19-2, 8-0) are being genuinely discussed as a No. 1 seed for the tournament as they are 8-0 in the nation’s toughest conference. Marquette is coming off big wins at Notre Dame and over Georgetown and, in a conference known for its defense, the Golden Eagles are putting up 81.0 points (good for 12th in the country).
The Blue Demons (8-14, 0-9) are still winless in Big East play, but they did put a good fight in their trip to Marquette on Jan. 24, losing 79-70. This was the Blue Demons’ seventh loss in their last 10 meetings with the Golden Eagles; rebounding was the key as Marquette grabbed 38 boards to DePaul’s 24. This is the beginning of a three-game road stretch for Marquette, and it’ll want to start on a good note, so bet on the Golden Eagles for their 12th straight win.
