The Boilermakers just had the biggest blowout in team history on Wednesday, over Iowa, in a game which I picked the Boilermakers, by the way.
However, they are still just a middling Big Ten team. 6-6 in conference play, 13-10 overall, and a projected 10-seed in the tournament.
Where they are really good, is DEFENSE. They have a top-15 KenPom adjusted defense, with teams shooting only 28.4% from three-point range against them.
Where they aren’t really good, is OFFENSE. They have very poor shooting splits, play at one of the slowest paces in the nation, and they get to the line at one of the worst rates in the nation while also having one of the worst FT% in the nation. That last point is very concerning.
Putting this all together: The Boilermakers score 68.8 points/game, which is 256th in the country, while they allow only 60.7 points/game, which is 11th in the country.
The Hoosiers are coming off three straight losses.
So, perhaps this will be a bounce-back game for them. Indiana excels in two areas where Purdue hasn’t been quite as successful this year: Getting to the free throw line, and rebounding.
Especially rebounding. The Hoosiers are top-25 in the nation in both offensive rebounding% and defensive rebounding%. Trayce Jackson-Davis is the one hitting the boards the most for the Hoosiers, averaging 2.8 off. boards a game and 8 boards overall. But, in reality, the whole team rebounds well.
Additionally, their FTA/FGA is 11th in the nation. This is good. However, what is not good is the fact that they only make 68.5% of those free throws, which is 245th in the nation.
Free Purdue Boilermakers vs. Indiana Hoosiers NCAAB Prediction:
This is a fun game because both of these teams have been really bad ATS lately. Check out these fun trends:
-Purdue are 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 vs. Big Ten.
-Purdue are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games on the road.
-Indiana are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games overall.
-Indiana are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games played on a Saturday.
Ahhhh, I love gambling on two bad teams.
In actuality, these are two pretty good basketball teams playing in the toughest conference in the nation. Purdue is damn 17th in KenPom adjusted efficiency, and Indiana is 40th which is still pretty good.
This is a tough game to pick. Purdue is probably the better team; however, I feel like they’re going to come down off a serious high after shooting 71% from two and 56% from three against the Hawkeyes. The Boilermakers made nineteen of their thirty-four 3pt attempts. No one loses when they shoot that hot.
And, Indiana could really use a bounce-back game here. They’re coming home after two road games, and haven’t played since last Saturday. Meanwhile, Purdue are going on the road again, running off of only two days rest.
I think this is a good spot for Indiana. Plus, if they lose this one, there’s a good chance they could lose their spot in the tournament…
