The Odds

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the Boilermakers are 7.5-point home underdogs versus the Cornhuskers after opening as a 9.5-point dog. The total, meanwhile, is sitting at 53.5 points.

The Records

Nebraska is 3-5 straight up this season and 4-4 against the spread, while Purdue is 1-6 overall and 3-4 at the betting window. The Cornhuskers are 2-1 against the spread on the road this season while the Boilermakers are 1-3 ATS at home.

The Pick

Nebraska quarterback Tommy Armstrong was held out of practice earlier this week because of a foot injury and was even wearing a boot. If he can't play, Ryker Fyfe will start in Armstrong's place. Don't expect things to click right away for Fyfe, who could struggle to find a rhythm and get his timing down while working with the ones. The Huskers will rely on their defense today, which shouldn't have much issue defending a Boilermakes team that ranks 102nd in the nation in points per game (23.1) and is 105th in the country in rushing (134.9 YPG). Take the under as both offenses could struggle.
