Bet on the Big Ten Tournament

Michigan is playing really well right now, but the Wolverines are stepping up in competition and still dealing with a strange 48-hour stretch. The emotional lift came yesterday against Illinois, but now it faces a Purdue team that should be motivated to play it. The Boilermakers will have revenge on their mind today and the spread is quite low for this matchup.
