College Basketball Betting Trends

Purdue

The Boilermakers are 9-4-1 ATS in their last 14 games overall. Purdue is 16-7-1 ATS in its last 24 Tuesday games.

Minnesota

The Golden Gophers are 5-16 ATS in their last 21 Tuesday games. Minnesota is 1-4 ATS in its last five home games versus the Boilermakers.

Prediction:

Purdue has dominated at home lately, but it's been a far different story on the road. The Boilermakers won their last two road games by a combined five points, preceded by a 14-point loss plus an OT win before that. Minnesota still has outside hopes of an NCAA Tournament berth and a win here is a necessity. Look for Minnesota to bring its 'A' game as this one goes down to the wire.
