Love this early season matchup between two teams that are likely to be ranked all season long. Louisville is looking to overcome offseason turmoil but is very talented.
Purdue is my sleeper pick to win the Big Ten. They are experience and there is nothing they lack, other than maybe a lottery level talent.
The whole FBI situation cost the team their Hall of Fame coach and a five start prospect. So of course they start the season 4-0. They haven’t beaten anyone yet though.
This is a team that has a very experienced core. No head coaching experience with the elevation of David Padgett who was elevated after Rick Pitino was fired so this will be a test.
Louisville has a very good and experience backcourt with Quentin Snider and Deng Adel. Snider has struggled with his shot while Adel has taken the next step averaging 17ppg.
There is not a dominant big man but the Cardinals are blessed with a number of long defenders that make it difficult to get good shots either as a primary defender or in help situations.
I like this Purdue team a lot which is why I was so disappointed when they lost back to back games to Tennessee and Western Kentucky, programs that are tiers below them in my opinion. They did just whip Arizona but the Wildcats are even harder to understand these days.
Both of their losses were close but one thing stood out for me in the numbers – they were out-rebounded in both. Isaac Hass is as big as they come on a college campus this season. With him leading the way they should dominate the glass.
Hass has to learn to play without fouling more but he is part of a deep starting lineup where everyone averages 10ppg or more. They did think they would get more from their bench. Ryan Cline is supposed to be a sniper but he has not been able to find the mark.
Returning home from a tournament with at least one win will be a positive for this group. They could jump on this aggressive team early and perhaps put them away.

Free Louisville Cardinals vs. Purdue Boilermakers NCAAB Prediction:
I see this as a buying opportunity on Purdue. People are going to see Louisville as undefeated and assume business as usual but this will be their first true road game and their PG is in a shooting funk.
From a betting perspective it would have been better had Purdue lost to Arizona but still to many they are below market expectations. I see it as a blip nothing more.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Purdue -7
