(5-2) Purdue Boilermakers vs. Michigan Wolverines (7-0)
I am kind of liking that we get this hint of conference play in the B10 before the holidays and this matchup is pretty compelling too.
Essentially we get one of the best scorers in all of college hoops against the best defense. Obviously there is more going on than that but its a nice story line.
Purdue is coming into this off off a nailbiter loss to Florida State in the B10/ACC Challenge. It was on the road too and now they are on the road again so there could be some fatigue.
Carsen Edwards is a treat but at times it looks like he is trying to do too much. That being said he can keep his team in any game, including this one he is that good and creative.
Ryan Cline used to be a nice shooter to bring off the bench but now he is the second leading scorer on the team. His volume and percentages have gone up which is why his numbers have exploded..
The biggest difference between this year’s team and a few from the past is the amount of size they have inside. Matt Haarms is 7’3″ and pretty effective but he is all alone in the middle.
Big Blue continues to build a great resume as conference play commences. In beating both Villanova and North Carolina they have beaten the last three champions…and gotten some revenge.
I don’t want to discount the talent of the team but it has been about defense. They are first in the nation and it is not just about beating up on weaklings. They held Villanova to 46 and UNC to just 67.
Zavier Simpsons still needs a jump shot but he runs the team smoothly and is a strong defender. They get their scoring from other places.
It should come as no surprise but Michigan does a great job getting their players to improve over time. Throw in a frosh that is exceeding expectations and they have a nice mix.

Free Purdue Boilermakers vs. Michigan Wolverines NCAAB Prediction:
No line yet but Michigan is the obvious favourite at home. It could even be double digits.
Purdue can be a dangerous dog because of how explosive Edwards. There are some games he can win on his own.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: No line currently posted.
I don’t question anything we have seen from Big Blue but I am still not sure are elite. Keep that in mind.
