The Indiana Hoosiers are flatlining at the worst possible time and now welcome a seasoned Big Ten squad in the No. 15-ranked Purdue Boilermakers into their building. The Hoosiers have dropped 10 of their last 11 games, including a loss to the Boilermakers by 15 points. Purdue, on the other hand, is surging up the Big Ten standings by winning nine of its last 10 games but has gone a mediocre 3-3 SU in six conference road games.
Oddsmakers have opened Purdue as a 5-point favorite in a battle between state lines with a total of 141 (since moved to 140).
My Best Bet for Purdue vs Indiana
Purdue may not be as reliable on the road this season at 5-6 SU and 6-5 ATS in 11 away games but this pick is more an indictment of Indiana. The Hoosiers just can’t buy a win right now and have failed to cover the spread in their last five home games, with four of those games as a favorite. Indiana’s offense is in the toilet and if you can’t decide on a spread, the UNDER 140 may be the next-best bet.
