Reason: Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach NCAAB Saturday 10* (Top Play) on Purdue vs. Michigan @ 6 p.m. ET
It’s been a trying couple of weeks for Matt Painter and the Purdue Boilermakers. A rash of injuries, followed by a rash of suspensions would doom most college basketball programs, especially when you call the Big Ten home. However, through that adversity, the Boilermakers have prevailed with three wins in their last four conference games, including an impressive victory over the Northwestern Wildcats, 83-65 as 10.5-point favorites, Wednesday. Purdue has actually been one of the most solid wagers in the Big Ten in recent weeks, taking a 5-2 ATS mark in its last seven games into Saturday’s showdown in Ann Arbor with the Michigan Wolverines. Painter has leaned heavily on his upperclassmen during this stretch, with seniors Robbie Hummel and Lewis Jackson providing stability. Painter has even got top reserve D.J. Byrd back on track after a suspension due to an incident at a local bar. Byrd chipped in with 15 points in the win over the Wildcats. Michigan is riding high, with a NCAA Tournament ticket in its back pocket. It faces a Boilermakers squad still on the NCAA bubble. The Wolverines are playing some of the best basketball in the country right now, winning four in a row while covering the spread in each of those games. However, that streak has inflated the Michigan spread too much, giving great value to a hungry and experienced Purdue program looking to boost its tournament resume. The Boilermakers won’t be thrown off by the Senior Night celebrations inside Crisler Arena, going a profitable 5-2 ATS in their last seven trips to UM.
Play on Purdue as a 10* Top Selection Saturday.
Good luck, Scott
