On the other side of this matchup is the Minnesota Golden Gophers who sit with an 11-7 record and they have gone 9-8-1 against the spread.

Jamison Battle has been the top player for Minnesota averaging 17.6 points while shooting 46.2 percent from the field and 36.7 percent from behind the three point line.

The over is 5-1 in Minnesota’s last six games. The over is 5-1 in Minnesota’s last six games overall. The over is 4-0 in Minnesota’s last four games following an against the spread win.
The Gophers lack of rebounding is an issue, and that is going to be the difference in this game as Purdue cruises to a victory. This is a game where Purdue could score 90 points, and they will cover the spread. Back Purdue against the spread.
