College Basketball Betting Trends
The Boilermakers are 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 Big Ten games. Purdue is 11-4-1 ATS in its last 16 Tuesday games.
The Hoosiers are 7-19-1 ATS in their last 27 Tuesday games. Indiana is 1-8 ATS in its last nine games overall.
Indiana has struggled mightily over the last month, but it has not lost by more than five points in its last two home games. The Hoosiers should have no issues getting up for a matchup with the rival Boilermakers and with the strength being in their defense, that should help slow down the nation's fourth-ranked offense in adjusted efficiency.
