Two teams from the Big Ten will be squaring off when the Purdue Boilermakers visit the Rutgers Scarlet Knights.
The tip-off is set for 7:00 ET from Jersey Mike’s Arena.
The Boilermakers opened up as an 11.5 point favorite and that number is now up to 12.5. The total has stayed right around 139.
The #1 team in the country has had an amazing season so far. I think they could give any team out there some trouble. If things go how they should, they will make a deep run in March.
The Boilermakers last played on December 3rd, where they beat the Iowa Hawkeyes by a score of 77-70. That was a good win for them over a solid conference opponent.
One thing that stands out about this team so far is the teams they have played. It is not as if they are playing cupcake city every night. This club has already knocked off some tough competition, which is a very good sign for them.
In the win over Iowa, the leading scorer was Jaden Ivey, who had 19 points and 2 rebounds. Also, Trevion Williams added 13 points and an amazing 18 rebounds. I look for both of these guys to have big days when they go against the Scarlet Knights on Wednesday.
Rutgers Scarlet Knights
It certainly has not been smooth sailing for this Rutgers team in the early going. Sure, the season is long, but I am not sure how good of a team they will turn out to be.
The Scarlet Knights hold a record of 4-4 at the moment. On their resume, they really do not have an impressive win. I guess you could say the win against Clemson fits that category, but they are not even ranked. They will be in for a huge challenge when they go against the Boilermakers.
They got crushed by Illinois on Friday by a score of 86-51. If they are not careful, a similar result may occur when they face the Boilermakers.
When you allow 86 points it is hard enough to win, but when you score just over 50 points? Good luck winning that game. It is almost impossible to do in modern college basketball.

Free Purdue Boilermakers vs. Rutgers Scarlet Knights NCAAB Prediction:
I look for Purdue to have their way in this particular ball game.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Purdue ATS
Purdue needs to be able to set the tone early and often in this game. They are the much better team and they need to show that on the road.
I just feel that the offense for the Boilermakers will be too much for the Scarlet Knights to handle. They have not faced anybody on the level of Purdue and I just don’t think they’ll be able to handle it.
Not only have the Boilermakers been winning a lot of games, but they have also been covering a lot of spreads. Also, let us not forget how bad Rutgers has been ATS. Based on all of that, 12.5 is not too high for me to lay here with the Boilermakers. I look for them to roll in this game.
Give me Purdue laying the points on the road here.
