Northwestern clearly looks like one of the more overrated teams coming into the season, but we’re not ready to completely sell this team off given the amount of veteran talent that returns to a group that went to the NCAA tournament last year. Northwestern is a program that’s not used to having the spotlight and it appears the elevated expectations have had a negative result at least through the first few weeks of the nonconference. Northwestern stands 5-3 overall with some of their better wins coming in competitive games against La Salle and Illinois. The Wildcats have suffered defeats against quality opponents Creighton, Texas Tech, and Georgia Tech.

Purdue hasn’t been without faults either so far this season standing 7-2 overall with upset defeats coming against Tennessee and Western Kentucky. The Boilermakers have picked up some great resume building wins however getting past teams like Maryland, Louisville, Arizona, and Marquette. We have a lot of respect for how Purdue has been challenging themselves during the nonconference and this will only help the Boilermakers come March. Purdue also returns a lot of veteran talent and it’s been Carsen Adwards who’s stepped up to lead the Boilermakers averaging 17.4 points per game.

There’s no denying Purdue has a tremendous home court advantage, but we were very surprised seeing the Boilermakers giving this many points to a respectable Northwestern opponent. Even though Purdue almost certainly gets the win, we like Northwestern getting the generous amount of points as a solid value play.

    Slim pickings at CFP lately with Jimmy Gold MIA. There are much better games on the board. Skip this game Great night in football last night that CFP forgot to cover. Will Alabama get into the playoff or will the Buckeyes sneak in with 2 losses ? My take on this is based on OSU loss to Iowa. That loss sinks their ship. Bama should make it in at #4

    Purdue wins this but 13 points a bit too heavy here with the first BIG Ten game for both --I'll grab the points and be a Wildcat here
