Boilers can’t get on track
Purdue is riding a two-game losing streak following a 24-6 loss at home to Illinois last weekend. The Boilermakers are now 2-6 on the season, 1-4 in the Big Ten, 4-4 against the spread and 4-4 with the over/under total.
The Boilermakers haven’t been able to get much going on offense or defense this year. The offense is putting up 23.8 points and 370.2 yards per game, while the defense is allowing 28.6 points and 412.1 yards per contest. Purdue lost QB Elijah Sindelar for a while due to a broken collarbone. Jack Plummer has taken over and has thrown for 1,361 yards and nine touchdowns with six interceptions. David Bell is the leading receiver with 653 yards and 44 catches. They lost stud receiver Rondale Moore with a knee injury weeks back. King Doerue is the leading rusher with 289 yards and three touchdowns.
Nebraska in need of a win
Nebraska has lost back-to-back games to Minnesota and Indiana to fall to just 4-4 on the season. The Cornhuskers had high hopes for the year, but they are just 2-3 in the Big Ten thus far, 1-7 against the spread and 5-3 with the under.
The Cornhuskers are in the middle of the road on offense and defense nationally this season. The offense averages 26.2 points and 415.4 yards per game while the defense is giving up 28.9 points and 401 yards per contest. Adrian Martinez has missed the last two games due to a knee injury. He has thrown for 1,245 yards and seven touchdowns while rushing for 341 yards and three scores. Martinez is expected to give it a go today. JD Spielman is the leading receiver with 29 catches for 566 yards and a score. Dedrick Mills is the leading rusher with 380 yards and seven touchdowns.
College Football Betting Trends
Purdue has hit the over in 42 of its last 63 home games and in 10 of its last 11 games following a double-digit loss at home.
The Cornhuskers are 9-2 with the over in their last 11 games on grass and in eight of their last 10 road games.
These two have hit the under in four of their last six meetings overall and in two of their last three clashes at Purdue. Nebraska is a team that tends to play down to its competition when going against lesser opponents. I think that is going to lead to a low-scoring game. Purdue’s offense just isn’t explosive enough to score a lot of points in this game and I think that will lead to the Nebraska offense to not play with much urgency. Martinez could be a little rusty under center, and the Huskers just haven’t been a great football team as is. It wouldn’t be surprising to see them struggle with execution on the road.
