Michigan may have had a lot of drama before the game but they did not show any signs of being fatigued by it once they got on the court on Thursday. They advance to take on the conference’s top seed.
Purdue looks to be undervalued coming into this one. They are the top team in the conference and deservedly so. Michigan gets a little bump for having got their first game under their belt…but I think the line should be Biggie, er bigger.
Michigan had little difficulty dispatching Illinois…winning by 20 as just 6 point favourites. You almost have to wonder if they might have peaked too soon. Still it was an impressive display.
He was only 2 for 6 from deep but is a good sign that Zak Irvin scored 18 points in the opener. He was 6 for 8 on 2 pointers and is a more natural scorer than leading point getter Derrick Walton.
Walton is more important as as a distributor and was a big reason the Wolverines had only 7 turnovers in the whole game against Illinois. He got the ball where people can do things with it, the team as a whole shot 53% for the game.
Michigan took it to Purdue, winning by 12 just a couple of weeks ago…at home. The markets might be reading a little too much into that result though. Michigan definitely needs this game more than Purdue.
I am sure that the Boilermakers are aware that their last loss was to Michigan and that might feed into greater motivation for this one. They have nothing to prove but can improve their seeding with a good performance this week.
No team in the country has the kind of size inside that Purdue has. Caleb Swanigan is the best big man in the college game and Isaac Haas is a giant. They do not always play together but both are tough even on their own.
The perimeter guys are no slouch either. There might not be a big game in terms of hype of pro prospects but working inside out they get great shots from beyond the arc and make a lot of them. The team shoots 40% from three.
Purdue is an easy favourite to take the tournament, beginning with this game. I like this team to be a very dangerous out this time around. Possibly Matt Painter’s best group.

Free Michigan Wolverines vs. Purdue Boilermakers NCAAB Prediction:
This line looks way off to me. It;s not that Purdue is in a whole other league but they have been a consistent team this season and they play defense. Something Michigan is often allergic too.
I think there might be too much recency bias here, from the Big Blue win over Purdue and the Michigan win yesterday. Purdue is definitely the play.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Purdue -3
Biggie is the only player in this game that can dominate. I am looking to see that and the team around him show what they can do as well.
