Purdue vs. Iowa Pick

Purdue vs. Iowa College Basketball Predictions Against The Spread 1/20/18

Will No. 3 Purdue have another easy win in Big Ten play when the Boilermakers face Iowa today at Noon ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Purdue is favored on the road in this game, as the Boilermakers are getting odds of -12.5 points against Iowa. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 153 points. Today’s game will take place from Carver-Hawkeyes Arena in Iowa City, Iowa and air live on ESPN.

Purdue just keeps rolling right along. The Boilermakers are coming off a 78-50 win over Wisconsin at home to improve to 7-0 in the Big Ten. Purdue is 18-2 overall and 13-6 against the spread. The Boilers are averaging 84.6 points per game this season while holding opponents to just 62.1 per game. Carsen Edwards is leading Purdue on the season with 17 points per game while Vincent Edwards is adding 14.7 points and 8.1 rebounds per contest.

Iowa is coming off an 80-64 loss at Rutgers for its fourth loss in five games. The Hawkeyes are now 10-10 overall, 1-6 in the Big Ten and 6-8-2 against the spread. Iowa is averaging 81 points per game on offense this year while allowing 76.4 per contest. Tyler Cook is leading Iowa on the season with 14.8 points and 6.8 rebounds per game. Jordan Bohannon is adding 13.5 points and 4.9 assists per contest.

Bet on Purdue vs. Iowa

Iowa has won three of its last four meetings with Purdue coming into today, covering the spread in the three wins as well. However, Iowa has been a mess this year. The Hawkeyes haven’t really performed well against any of the better teams in the Big Ten. Their lone cover was an OT win at Illinois. Purdue has been able to steamroll many of the lesser teams in the Big Ten and I expect more of the same today. The public betting is also very strong with Purdue today.

CBB DAILY PREDICTION: PURDUE -12.5
