According to oddsmakers from oddsmakers at RealBets, Purdue is favored on the road tonight, as the Boilermakers are getting odds of -9 points against the Illini. The over/under total for the game has been set at 140 points.
Purdue is 14-2 overall, 2-1 in the Big Ten, 2-0 on the road and 9-3 against the spread. Illinois comes into this game 8-8 overall, 0-3 in the Big Ten, 4-3 at home and 5-6-3 against the spread. Purdue has won eight of its last 10 meetings with Illinois, but the Illini have covered in three of the last four in this series.
Purdue is 14-2 on the season and has one of the nation’s biggest frontcourts. They’ve won three of four games and face an Illinois team that has lost three straight. The Illini are decimated by injuries and shot just 29.8 percent from the field against Michigan State in their last game. They have a lot of young players playing big minutes and that’s not going to help against 7-foot A.J. Hammons, 6-9 Caleb Swanigan and 7-2 Isaac Haas.
