The Purdue Boilermakers and Indiana Hoosiers meet Tuesday in college basketball action at the Assembly Hall.

The Purdue Boilermakers look for another victory after winning 10 of their last 12 games. The Purdue Boilermakers are averaging 77.8 points on 45.2 percent shooting and allowing 68.3 points on 43.2 percent shooting. Carsen Edwards is averaging 24.4 points and 3.2 assists while Ryan Cline is averaging 12.2 points and 2.5 rebounds. Matt Haarms is grabbing 5.1 rebounds and Nojel Eastern is dishing 2.3 assists. The Purdue Boilermakers are shooting 37.8 percent from beyond the arc and 74.2 percent from the free throw line. The Purdue Boilermakers are allowing 35.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.6 rebounds per game. The Purdue Boilermakers have split their last six road games.

The Indiana Hoosiers could use a win after losing 10 of their last 11 games. The Indiana Hoosiers are averaging 71.2 points on 46.8 percent shooting and allowing 67.4 points on 42.2 percent shooting. Romeo Langford is averaging 17.2 points and 2.4 assists while Juwan Morgan is averaging 15.3 points and eight rebounds. Justin Smith is grabbing 4.4 rebounds and Devonte Green is dishing three assists. The Indiana Hoosiers are shooting 31.9 percent from beyond the arc and 66.1 percent from the free throw line. The Indiana Hoosiers are allowing 33.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.7 rebounds per game. The Indiana Hoosiers have lost their last four home games.

The Boilermakers are 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 vs. Big Ten, 11-4-1 ATS in their last 16 Tuesday games and 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Hoosiers are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games, 1-8 ATS in their last 9 vs. Big Ten and 1-8 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Boilermakers are 6-1-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings and the favorite is 7-3-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings. The under is 7-1 in Boilermakers last 8 Tuesday games. The under is 8-2 in Hoosiers last 10 home games.

The Purdue Boilermakers beat Indiana last month by 15 points, while holding the Hoosiers to just 55 points on 20 percent shooting from deep. The Indiana Hoosiers just aren't a good basketball team, as this club has serious offensive issues and doesn't know how to run plays for a projected top-10 pick in next years NBA draft. Despite this being a must-win game for the Hoosiers, I can't get behind a team that's lost 10 of their last 11 and is shooting 39.9 percent from the field in their last five games. It's the same Indiana team every time it takes the court. We know what we're getting from the Purdue Boilermakers, and they've owned this rivalry with wins in eight of the last 10 and covers in six of the last eight. 

Pick:
Purdue -4.5
