10-5 (0-1 V) Rutgers Scarlet Knights vs. Purdue Boilermakers 13-2 (9-0 H)
Rutgers has raced out to 10 wins but passing the 15 they got a year ago is going to be tough, They are 0-2 in Big Ten play to start.
Purdue has not lost yet in conference play and looking at their schedule they should be able to keep that up for a while longer.
Rutgers Scarlet Knights
The Scarlet Knights have gotten to 10 wins by beating mostly nobodies. The only win of any real quality was against state rival Seton Hall.
The one thing that Rutgers can point to is the fact that they have put up strong defensive numbers, both out of necessity and against weak competition.
Corey Sanders leads the team in scoring but is still searching for the touch that had him score almost 16ppg as a freshman. On a better team he would not have this opportunity.
DeShawn Freeman is posting nice numbers but he is going to find it hard to do with his inside game and his size (6’7″) against a team that can be big and physical like Purdue.
There is not much buzz around the program right now but I can see them winning pretty easily until they play Michigan State next month.
Purdue is one of the most balanced programs around – they are in the top 30 in scoring and points allowed. Four players average more than 13ppg.
Isaac Hass has the potential to dominate more because of his size but is still pretty good – 63% on field goals and 15/5 in just 21 minutes per game.
Vince Edwards might be the most versatile player in college hoops. The 6’8″ senior leads the team in rebounding while making 40% of his three point shots.

Free Rutgers Scarlet Knights vs. Purdue Boilermakers NCAAB Prediction:
This is a mismatch plain and simple. Even if Purdue is looking the other way I can’t seen an upset.
These two met last year also at Purdue and the Boilermakers were -17.5. That seems like a pretty good starting point in terms of a number.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: OVER
It might be below last year’s number as Purdue has an NBA first rounder on their team that is no longer with the program. Still they should dominate.
