  • The Wisconsin Badgers are 10-0 SU and 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games against the Purdue Boilermakers. The Badgers can get one step closer to clinching the Big Ten West with a road win over Purdue on Saturday.

    • The total has gone UNDER in seven of Wisconsin's last 10 games against Purdue.
    • Wisconsin is 7-1 ATS in its last eight games against its conference.
    • Wisconsin is 10-1 SU in its last 11 games on the road.

    Wisconsin controls its own destiny in the Big Ten West, and even with two losses the Badgers would have a strong case to be a playoff team if they go on to win the conference. Powered by a smothering defense that allows only 12.7 points per game, the Badgers have been a reliable bet this season at 8-2 SU and ATS.

    Purdue has lost its last five games, and that streak isn't likely to end Saturday. The Boilermakers rank 119th in the nation by allowing 38.4 points per game and are 0-15 SU in their last 15 games in the month of November. As a result of Purdue's porous defense, the OVER is 10-2 in the team's last 12 games.

    The Boilermakers are 1-14 SU and 2-13 ATS in their last 15 games against teams with winning records.
