In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Ohio at Purdue.
The Ohio Bobcats have played well over the past few weeks as they won 5 of their last 6 games. Offensively, the team is averaging 75.7 points per game on 44% shooting from the field and 28% from three-point range. Jason Carter leads the team with nearly 20 points per game and 6.8 assists. Defensively, the Bobcats are giving up 71.5 points per game.
The Purdue Boilermakers are in a poor form currently, losing 4 of their last 5 games. Even though they are still over .500, things aren’t looking very bright for them. Purdue is averaging 77.4 points per game, shooting 44% from the field and 36% from three. Carsen Edwards leads the team with 25.6 points, three rebounds, and 3.7 assists per game. Ryan Cline is averaging in double digits with 13.5 points. Defensively, the team is allowing 69.5 points per game.
The spread seems a bit high to me. Even though I believe that Purdue won’t have any trouble winning the game, I cannot see them win by 17 points or more. Ohio should be able to stay in the game and cover the spread.
