Purdue Boilermakers Betting Preview
The Purdue Boilermakers look for another win after beating Samford on Monday. The Purdue Boilermakers look for their third straight 2-0 start. The Purdue Boilermakers are averaging 98 points on 54.8 percent shooting and allowing 45 points on 25 percent shooting. Zach Edey is averaging 16 points and 11 rebounds, while Camden Heide is averaging 13 points and 3 rebounds. Fletcher Loyer is the third double-digit scorer and Braden Smith is grabbing 4 rebounds.

The Purdue Boilermakers could obviously blow the doors off here given the talent gap, but it could be a look ahead spot with Xavier on deck Monday. The Morehead State Eagles are also an experienced roster with 7 seniors, and they gave Alabama a competitive game earlier this week. While Morehead State wasn't able to play much defense, it scored 73 points and forced 13 turnovers. A nice warm-up game for Morehead State and the experience should have this team ready to put up another fight. Lot of points. Give me the road dog.
