The Northwestern Wildcats and Purdue Boilermakers face off on Saturday in a Big Ten college football showdown at Ross-Ade. When these two teams faced off in 2021 it was Purdue that secured the 32-14 victory. 

Northwestern comes into this game with a 1-9 record and they have gone 4-6 against the spread. The Wildcats' offense has been an issue all season, and in the last game against Minnesota they really struggled and ended up losing 31-3. Over the last two games, Northwestern scored only 10 points. The Wildcats have dealt with a ton of injuries at quarterback, and in the last game, they had four different players throw at least three passes. Northwestern is averaging 15.3 points while their defense is giving up 28.2 points per game. Ryan Hilisinki is dealing with a leg injury and it’s unclear if he will be able to go in this game. 

On the other side of this matchup is Purdue who sits with a 6-4 record and they have gone 4-6 against the spread. In the last game against Illinois, Purdue scored 31 points and that was enough to win by a touchdown. Aidan O’Connell completed 25 of his 40 passes for 237 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception. Devin Mockobee finished with 28 carries for 106 yards and a touchdown. Purdue is averaging 29.6 points while their defense is giving up 25.2 points per game. In this game, if the defense is good, this should be another easy win for the Boilermakers. 

Northwestern is 4-9 against the spread in their last 13 games overall. Purdue is 1-4 against the spread in their last five home games. The under is 12-5 in the last 17 meetings between Purdue and Northwestern. The road team is 4-0 against the spread in the last four meetings between Purdue and Northwestern. 

Purdue is going to have no issue getting the job done in this game. Northwestern’s offense is averaging 15.3 points per game, but in this game, they are going to struggle to score seven points. Purdue is going to run up the score, and this will be an easy victory. Look for a 31-3 type of game, and Purdue will cover the spread.
