Randy’s Free Pick
The Purdue Boilermakers are obviously the better team, they’re playing the better ball now, and they win at home by an average of 18.2 points. I get the line being what it is. However, even with struggles here and there, the Terps are a good team with quality talent, and they lose by an average of 3.6 points as underdogs. Lot of points. Give me the road dog.
