After checking out both of these Big Ten Conference teams, you are going to find two Iowa vs Purdue betting picks to make. This game will have a big impact on the NCAAB standings, and Purdue knows that it cannot afford another loss in Big Ten Conference play.
The NCAAB schedule isn’t kind to Iowa forcing them to travel to Purdue this early in the season. Purdue is going to get some stops in this game, and they are going to come up with a big win in this one.
Take the under 164.5 total points and also bet on the Boilermakers to win and cover the spread in this game.
Iowa Hawkeyes vs Purdue Boilermakers Odds
If you want to make some Iowa vs Purdue betting picks for this game then you first need to look at the NCAAB odds. This Hawkeyes vs Boilermakers NCAAB matchup doesn’t have a very close spread as Purdue comes into this game as a 12.5-point betting favorite.
You can also look at making NCAAB picks on the total number of points, and that betting line is currently set at 164.5 total points. You can also find some prop betting options, but you will want to keep things simple in this game.
Iowa vs Purdue Betting Preview
You will want to check out the NCAAB injuries if you are going to bet on this game, but it looks as if both teams are pretty healthy ahead of this matchup.
Hawkeyes Want to Score
If you have seen some Iowa scores this season then you have likely seen that they are back to scoring points in bunches. Iowa is averaging over 90 points per game this season, and they just continue to make some big plays on that end of the floor.
Forward Ben Krikke is having a monster season for the Hawkeyes as he leads the team with 18.7 points per game, and he is shooting better than 61 percent. The NCAAB team stats on defense for Iowa are not good though as this team is giving up 75.7 points per game.
Iowa continues to try to push the tempo on both ends of the floor, but that has also created some major issues in Big Ten Conference play. The Hawkeyes might be 5-2 on the year, but they are going to have to start playing more defense if they want to win conference games.
Purdue Playing Some Defense
The Purdue standings currently have them in last place in the Big Ten Conference as they suffered an overtime loss to Northwestern in the conference opener. Purdue has been a great offensive team this year as well, but they can get some stops on defense.
Zach Edey is one of the top NCAAB players as he is averaging 23.5 points and 11.1 rebounds per game this season. Edey continues to attract a ton of double teams on offense, and that gives the Purdue shooters some time to operate.
Playing at home has been great for the Boilermakers in recent years, and it’s hard to see that changing this season. Edey will set the tone on offense for Purdue and then the rest of the offense is going to step up and do the rest.
