Purdue vs Tennessee 12/30/21 Betting Prediction
Purdue are 8-4 and have won 4 of their last 5 games. The Boilermakers have one of the best passing offenses in the country, averaging 340.5 passing yards per game. The lack of rushing game, however, usually limits the offense’s capabilities as the Boilermakers only score 27.5 points per game. For an offense that prolific, 27.5 points per game is really a fairly low number. The defense allows 20.5 points per game.
Tennessee is 7-5 and on a 3-1 run in their last 4 games. Out of their 12 games, they’ve played 5 times against ranked opponents and won 1 of these games. If it was not for their tough schedule, they would’ve looked much much better in terms of games won. The Volunteers are great at rushing the football, averaging 212 rushing yards per game. The passing offense is in the top 60, averaging 247 passing yards per game. The offense scores 38.8 points per game as a whole while the defense allows 27.5 points.
Tennessee’s passing defense is ranked 105th in the country. This is far from being great and we have already seen the Boilermakers upset much bigger favorites than Tennessee. Purdue is ranked 18th at stopping the pass and this will definitely prove to be a big advantage in this bowl game.
