The Purdue Boilermakers and Ohio State Buckeyes face off on Saturday in a Big Ten college football showdown at Ohio Stadium. When these two teams faced off in 2018 it was Purdue that came away with the victory. 

Purdue comes into this game with a 6-3 record but they have had some impressive victories over Iowa and Michigan State. In the last game against the Spartans, the offense was strong putting up 40 points, and that led to the 11 point victory. Aidan O’Connell had a big game throwing for 536 yards and three touchdowns. Purdue on the season is averaging 24.8 points while the defense is giving up 18.4 points per game. O’Connell has had a big season throwing for 2,087 yards, 12 touchdowns, and eight interceptions. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Ohio State Buckeyes who have had a perfect season except for a slip-up against the Oregon Ducks. In the last game against Nebraska though, it was a little closer than they had hoped, but they were still able to win by nine points. Ohio State is averaging 44.9 points while their defense is giving up 19 points per game.  Under center for Ohio State is C.J Stroud who has thrown for 2,675 yards, 25 touchdowns, and five interceptions. TreyVeyon Alexander has also had a big game on the ground rushing for 937 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Purdue is 7-2 against the spread in their last nine games against teams with a winning record. Ohio State is 2-6 against the spread in their last eight home games. The under is 4-0 in Purdue’s last four road games. Ohio State is 7-2 against the spread in their last nine games in November. The under is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings. The underdog is 5-2 against the spread in their last seven meetings. 

Purdue has done a good job of playing up in games this season, and Ohio State’s defense isn’t all that good. I expect another big game from O’Connell and Ohio State is going to have some major issues slowing him down. I expect Purdue will lose by 10 points or less, and the Boilermakers will cover the spread.
