Purdue opens as a 1-point favorite and the total is set at 140. I am going to take a shot with the home team in Penn State, as Purdue has five road losses in conference play this season, and Penn State has been decent at home. Penn State certainly has the talent to win this game outright, and I think the Lions get the job done.
