Purdue is a very good team, but this is a test, and a game they can't overlook. If they overlook this game, they will be upset and that will lead to a drop in their rankings.
Purdue is 0-4 against the spread in their last 4 home games vs. a team with a winning road record. The over is 7-1 in Purdue's Last 8 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game. The over is 4-0 in Boilermakers last 4 vs. a team with a winning straight up record.
Wisconsin’s defense has shown holes this season, and they are going to have some struggles trying to slow down Purdue. Look for Purdue to have no issue running up the score, and Purdue is going to cover the spread. Back the Boilermakers against the spread.
