Best Bet for this Game

Michigan State comes in off back-to-back defeats, including their meltdown against Ohio State where they blew a 12-point lead at home in the final 11 minutes. The Spartans are just 3-5 on the road this season, even though they have won their last two games away from East Lansing.

Their problem is two-fold: playing in West Lafayette against a Purdue team that is a perfect 14-0 at the Mackey Arena this season and trying to slow down Edey’s presence in the low block on both ends. Even if Edey is held in check, Purdue has blistered teams from the perimeter, a major difference from last season’s team. Playing at home works in their favor and the Boilermakers maintain their momentum by rolling at home.
