Purdue is 1-9-2 ATS in their last 12 home games against a team with a road winning percentage below .400 and 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 home games while the under is 9-2 in their last 11 games following a win.
I’m taking Michigan State and the points. I just feel that the Spartans match up really well with Purdue and the last time that we saw these two teams lock up, Purdue escaped East Lansing with a one-point win. I think we have another game here that could come down to who has the ball last in the dying seconds, so give me the Spartans and the points here.
