Purdue is on a really nice and has more than enough talent for it to continue. They certainly look like the best team in the Big Ten right now.
Minnesota was supposed to be a top 25 team this season. The results haven’t been there and now they are dealing with scandal too.
When Purdue lost to Tennessee and Western Kentucky early it was a surprise. Both were close games and Tennessee is pretty good so these are not all that damaging.
I think it is fair to say that Purdue is about as complete a team as there is. They might bot have NBA hall of famers on the roster but they are really good at college basketball.
Purdue has one of the most challenging inside threat in Isaac Hass and a plethora of outside shooters. They also have lots of players who can create their own shots.
I don’t think of them as being a particularly good defensive team but the numbers bear that out. They have good size at every position and keep teams in front of them.
Minnesota Golden Gophers
Minnesota has lost two in a row plus the services of Reggie Lynch, their best interior defender and rebounder. Their season could be coming apart.
Still this is a pretty good team but they are reeling right now. Purdue coming to town is about the worst situation. They would be better off playing Penn State.
Minnesota has been relying on Jordan Murphy big time this season. He is a burly forward at 6’4″ 240. He is super productive though averaging 18 and 12.
The Gophers have a productive backcourt duo in Amir Coffey and Nate Mason. They are going to keep them in a lot of games but not having Lynch really impacts their depth.
CBB Betting Trends:
- PUR are 11-2-2 ATS in their last 15 Sat. games.
- MINN are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall.
- Over is 6-2 in MINN last 8 Sat. games.
- Over is 19-7 in MINN last 26 home games.
Free Purdue Boilermakers vs. Minnesota Golden Gophers NCAAB Prediction:
Purdue has to be the favourite when the line comes off here. Not having Lynch to check Hass is going to really hurt Minny.
Even with Lynch I am not sure the Gophers have what it takes to beat Purdue, even at home.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Purdue -9.5
Look for Purdue to steadily wear out the Gophers. They can win each half by six for a comfortable win.
