The Boilermakers play their second game against the Hawkeyes this year. In December, Indiana University was a 15.5-point home favorite over Purdue, which won 77-70 as a big 17.5-point road dog at the best Iowa online gambling casinos. Let’s take a closer look at the Purdue Boilermakers and their visit to Indiana on Saturday.

Notes On The Purdue Boilermakers

The Purdue Boilers (16-3 SU, 10-9 ATS) enjoyed an 80-60 home triumph against Northwestern Wildcats on Sunday. After losing by five points to Indiana Hoosiers, they recorded their fourth victory in the previous 5 NCAAB betting games.

The Boilermakers got off to a quick start, shooting 50 percent in the first quarter. Guard Sasha Stefanovic scored 22 points on 10-of-13 from the floor and 6-of-8 from the line to lead Indiana. Senior center Zach Edey and senior forward Trevion Williams each had 12 points.

Their conference record is 5-3. They are No. 8 in the NCAA NET Rankings and No. 6 in the KenPom rankings.The Boilermakers have an excellent offense. They shoot 50% from the field and 40% from 3-point range.

Notes On The Iowa Hawkeyes

The Iowa Hawkeyes bounced back from a 48-46 loss to the Rutgers Scarlet Knights with a 68-51 victory over the Penn State Nittany Lions as 10.5-point home favorites. It was their third triumph in four games, bringing their record in Big Ten play to 4-4.

The Hawkeyes’ Keegan Murray (22.8 points, 8.4 rebounds) has continued to be the team’s leader. Murray had 15 points and eight college basketball betting rebounds in that easy win over Penn State after scoring 13 points and snaring 13 boards against Rutgers.

The Iowa Hawkeyes are ranked No. 20 in the NCAA NET Rankings and KenPom rankings. They score 118.5 points per 100 possessions (7th in the nation) on 46.5% shooting from the field (70th) and 33.8% from downtown (179th).

Pick And Prediction: Purdue Boilermakers -17.5

Neither of these two teams have been playing well defensively so far this season. This is likely to lead to a close battle between two offensive-minded teams. Purdue gives up 97.5 points per 100 possessions (65th in the nation), while Iowa yields 99.2 (96th).

The Boilermakers beat the Hawkeyes in their first game of the season. But Iowa missed its best player, Keegan Murray. Iowa will be more dangerous with him in the lineup. I am still backing Purdue because it has great depth, but this game could go either way.

In the last seven games, five of Purdue and Iowa’s games went over the total. In these games, these teams depend on a lot of points from their offense. So I will take the side that has more points in this game.

Purdue prefers to take things slowly, averaging 66.9 possessions per 40 college basketball betting minutes (220th in the nation). But Purdue’s offensive execution has been great so far. On the other side, Iowa registers 70.4 possessions per 40 minutes (55th).
