The Boilermakers are nowhere near as good as they have been over the course of the last few years, but we think that they have hit their stride at a good time and could challenge in this one against the No. 2 ranked team in America. Michigan is a young, raw team that excels with its talent more often than not. Though the 56-53 loss to the Ohio State Buckeyes showed that this team was mortal, the beating of the Minnesota Golden Gophers was a reminder that the club can still beat the snot out of any team in the country as well. A three-game cover streak is really helping us make a case for the Boilers. They knocked off all three teams outright, and it now has four wins in conference play. G Terone Johnson is averaging 13.3 points per game, and he is clearly rounding into one of the more underrated guards that the conference has to offer. If Terone and the gang can stay out of foul trouble and stay in the game, there is a decent chance that this game could turn out to be a heck of a lot closer than the oddsmakers are going to insinuate.
