The Indiana Hoosiers will play the Purdue Boilermakers in a Big Ten game on Saturday afternoon at Ross-Ade Stadium in West Lafayette, Indiana. Indiana only has one conference win, while Purdue has doubled that with two Big Ten wins. Here is our Indiana vs Purdue Prediction.

Purdue Boilermakers Team Facts

  • The home team has won six of Purdue's last seven games.
  • Purdue has covered the spread in each of its last six November games against Indiana.
  • Four of Purdue's last five games against non-AP-ranked teams at Ross-Ade Stadium have gone OVER the total points line.

Indiana Hoosiers Team Facts

  • Indiana has lost 12 of its last 13 road games against conference opponents.
  • The road team has covered the spread in four of Indiana's last five games.
  • Indiana has lost the first half in nine of its last 12 games against conference opponents.
  • Each of Indiana's last six road games against conference opponents have gone OVER the total points line.

Pick

Both of these teams have had very disappointing seasons, but they will have the chance to close the year out with a big rivalry game win here. Indiana has had one possession losses to Louisville, Illinois, and Michigan State, while also playing Penn State very tough. Purdue has some questions at quarterback, as Card is questionable to play. Indiana has looked like the better team this season and they are a few plays from having a much better record, so I am going to take the Hoosiers on the road.
