Purdue is ahead of Minnesota in the Big Ten standings but a lot can change in a week in this conference.
These are two teams that can look really good one moment and not so great the next. Minnesota is a different team at home than on the road this season.
These are no the highest-profile teams in the league but that doesn’t mean we won’t get a good game.
Purdue is hoping for a repeat of the game these teams played in later January. They won that one by 19 points at Mackey Arena.
Freshman Brandon Newman had a season-high 29 points in the win. He has been showing glimpses all season but consistency has been tricky.
Big Man Trevion Williams had a typically productive game with 17 points and 14 rebounds. They might not be able to count on Newman for what he produced in the win but Williams is the constant.
Minnesota Golden Gophers
In the aforementioned loss, Marcus Carr scored a season-low 6 points. He has really struggled to keep up with the pace he set early on and often the offense is lost without him.
Liam Robbins is a really nice player but not someone who you can feature on offense. He can stand up to Williams but is more of a strong help defender than a guy who shuts down his man.

Free Purdue Boilermakers vs. Minnesota Golden Gophers NCAAB Prediction:
The way to beat Minnesota is easy. You make it hard for Carr to score and then they have trouble finding alternatives.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Purdue ATS
I wouldn’t expect Purdue to win by 19 again but Minnesota has not suddenly got much better or developed more scoring options. I think we see a Purdue win, just less dramatic.
