Purdue picked up another win on Thursday night when it defeated Michigan, 92-88. The Boilermakers are 20-2 on the season, 9-0 in the Big Ten and 14-7 against the spread. Purdue is averaging 85.1 points per game on offense this year while allowing 63.4 per contest. Carsen Edwards is leading Purdue with 17 points per game while Vincent Edwards is adding 15.6 points and 7.7 rebounds per contest.
Indiana is coming off a 73-71 loss at Illinois this week to fall to 12-9 on the season. The Hoosiers are now 5-4 in the Big Ten and 11-10 against the spread. IU is averaging 73.1 points per game on offense while allowing 71.4 per game on defense.

Purdue has won five of its last six meetings with Indiana, going 5-0-1 against the spread in those six meetings. Purdue has been looking great for a while and may be one of the teams to beat in the NCAA Tournament. Purdue has had dominant road wins over their last two trips and just seem to have too much talent for Indiana to combat. The Hoosiers could step up at home, but I feel like the odds are not likely it can hang with Purdue today. The public betting is siding with Purdue on the road as well.
