Randy’s Free Pick
The Indiana Hoosiers have the talent to win this game, and they’re at home, where they win by an average of 21.4 points. The crowd will be out in full force. With that said, we’re getting Purdue in the underdog role, a team many consider to be the best in the country and a team that’s been an underdog just 3 times previously. Oh, Purdue covered all of those games as well. You won’t get Purdue in this spot often. Take advantage of the value.
