Few are going to be paying attention to the 7/10 game in the Big Ten Tournament on Thursday, especially with so many other great games on tap, but we think we have a great angle to back here on the college basketball odds between Purdue and Nebraska. This feels like the type of game where the Boilermakers are square, knowing that they have knocked off the Minnesota Golden Gophers and the Wisconsin Badgers, the latter of which came on the road, no less. These wins have come in just the last two weeks, and a close loss at the hands of the Michigan Wolverines was thrown into the mix as well. Still, this is a team that has been wildly inconsistent offensively all season long, and we think that could rear its ugly head again in this one. Big Red has an underrated defense that is going to be able to get some good work done against the Boilermakers for sure. The Cornhuskers have lost a lot of games of late, but this is a much different challenge on a neutral court than these recent road tests have been. In fact, remember that the Children of the Corn went 9-5-1 ATS this year in home games. This one isn’t quite at home, but it isn’t on the road either. We want the points on our side in this one.
Nebraska vs. Purdue Pick: Nebraska Cornhuskers +5.5
