The Boilermakers are 5-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record, however, are just 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Friday games. The Hoosiers are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 conference games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 home games.

Purdue hasn’t been able to pick up many wins lately, however, the Boilermakers have been competitive as their last 4 losses have come by just an average of just 6.8 ppg. Indiana has had an incredible season, however, Purdue has a passing attack that certainly can put up some points on the tough Hoosiers defense and as losing Michael Penix Jr. is such a major blow to the Indiana offense, I think Purdue does enough on the road here to cover with the points. Good Luck!
