Valparaiso vs. Purdue Pick

College Basketball Predictions: Valparaiso vs. Purdue 12/7/17

Will No. 21 Purdue have any trouble at home when it takes on unbeaten Valparaiso tonight at 6:30PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Purdue is the favorite in this game, as the Boilermakers are getting odds of -15.5 points against Valparaiso. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 146.5 points. Tonight’s game takes place from Mackey Arena in West Lafayette, Indiana and will air live on FS1.

Valpo is off to an 8-0 start to the season following a 72-65 win over Utah State. The Crusaders are now 4-1 against the spread this season, failing to cover in the win over Utah State. Valpo is putting up 82.2 points per game on offense while allowing 64.7 per game on defense. Tevonn Walker is leading the Crusaders with 17.3 points and 5.1 rebounds per game while Bakari Evelyn is adding 11.5 points and 3.9 assists per contest.

Purdue is coming off a 74-69 win over Northwestern this past weekend to improve to 8-2 on the season. The Boilermakers are 6-3 against the spread on the season and 3-1 ATS at home. Purdue is putting up 86.5 points per game on offense while allowing 67.1 per contest on defense. Carsen Edwards is leading Purdue with 16.3 points and 4 rebounds per game while Vincent Edwards is adding 13.5 points and 8.9 rebounds per contest.

Bet on Valparaiso vs. Purdue

Purdue has won its last eight meetings with Valpo, dating back to 1997. The last three games have been lined, with the Crusaders covering two of those three games. Purdue is only 1-8 against the spread in its last nine against Missouri Valley Conference opponents. The Boilermakers haven’t been dominant in recent games and are giving up a lot of points to an unbeaten team. I like Valpo to keep this game competitive behind its winning experience. The public betting is strong with Valpo tonight as well.
