OUR PREDICTION: The Cardinals are 5-0-1 against the spread in their last six games played in the month of September. On the other side, the Boilermakers are 2-5 against the number in their last seven neutral site games, are 1-4 against the number in their last five non-conference games, and have failed to cover the spread in four of their last five games in September. I think Lamar Jackson will be too much for Purdue on neutral ground. Jackson should tear up the turf tonight at Lucas Oil Stadium.
