Michigan State vs Purdue Betting Prediction 

Michigan State doesn’t have an answer for Zach Edey and that is going to be the difference here. Michigan State is giving up 65.9 points per game but that number is going to raise here. Edey is going to put up at least 30 points here and he’s going to get to the foul line a lot. Michigan State’s offense won’t be keeping up, and it will be Purdue that gets the job done. Back Purdue against the spread.
