The Line: Purdue Boilermakers -25 -- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds


The #11Purdue Boilermakers look to stay on a roll when the Youngstown State Penguins visit.

The Youngstown State Penguins were ice cold to start the year but went on a four game winning streak which came to an end in Saturday’s 60-56 loss to American. This was painful with the Penguins squandering a ten point lead in the second half. Both teams sank shots in the 44% range but the Eagles rallied on the strength of ten long balls. YSU struggled to find scoring with Matt Donlan and Cameron Morse netting 12 points apiece on 10-20 from the floor. Bobby Hain and Sidney Umude each scored eight points with Hain snagging a team high seven rebounds.  Altogether nine players saw the floor and eight scored.

Purdue Boilermakers vs. Youngstown State Penguins - 12/12/15 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction


The Purdue Boilermakers have been very strong at both ends of the floor which is why they are 9-0 and threatening to crack the top ten. The Boilermakers are coming off an 80-53 win versus Indiana-Purdue on Monday in which they took an eight point lead at the break and pulled away over the final 20 minutes. Purdue burned the nets at 52% while holding the Jaguars to under 33% while sinking eleven more free throws. AJ Hammons led five DD scorers with 14 points followed by a 13 point effort from Kendall Stephens. Caleb Swanigan added eleven points and grabbed 14 rebounds while Isaac Haas and Vince Edwards tossed in ten points apiece.

The over is 9-3 in the Penguins last 12 non-conference games and Youngstown State are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 road games while the over is 27-10 in their last 37 Saturday games. The over is 6-2 in Purdue’s last 8 vs. Horizon League and Purdue are 20-7 ATS in their last 27 games overall while the under is 13-5 in their last 18 home games. My feeling is Purdue decides how much they win by which could be 20 or could be 30…

Purdue -25
