Minnesota Purdue Betting – Purdue Seeks Revenge In Big Ten Clash

Posted by Washington Tucker on 2/6/2014 1:05:02 AM

The Purdue Boilermakers have already lost once this season to the Minnesota Golden Gophers just over two weeks ago. They hope to avoid the same result this weekend at home.

NCAA basketball betting: Minnesota Golden Gophers @ Purdue Boilermakers

Why To Bet On Minnesota

The sports betting landscape is filled with examples from team sports in which the second game of a two-game season series is supposed to go the other way. If Team A won the first game and the matchup is fairly even, Team B should even things up the second time around. However, it could well be that Minnesota is just a bad matchup for Purdue. The Golden Gophers are not the best offensive team in the Big Ten; Minnesota lacks a dominating low-post presence. Big man Ralph Sampson III is still developing, and backup Colton Iverson is just too slow to receive overly extensive minutes. Since Purdue has an NBA-ready post player in the form of JaJuan Johnson, one might be inclined to think that the Boilermakers will run wild in this reunion between the two squads. That might not be the case. Online betting students are aware that Minnesota torched Purdue in Minneapolis on Jan. 13. The Gophers got out in transition, ran the floor, and created high-quality shots before the Boilermakers’ defense could get set. Minnesota is not thought of as an up-tempo team; the Gophers like to hang their hat on their defense under coach Tubby Smith. If Minnesota could play fast-break basketball and thrive against Purdue, that’s an ominous sign for the Boilermakers heading into the rematch.

Why To Bet On Purdue

Super Bowl betting experts have tabbed the Green Bay Packers as a slight favorite over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV. One of the main reasons the Packers are a favorite is that they’ve been able to overcome the loss of star running back Ryan Grant at the very beginning of the season. The rest of the team rallied around Grant, did just enough to get to the playoffs as the No. 6 seed in the NFC, and has now powered its way to the big game by winning three road games thanks to a reconstituted offense.

This kind of resourcefulness that’s so evident on the Packers is also at work in the development of the Purdue basketball team. The Boilermakers did lose last Tuesday night to No. 1 Ohio State, but then again, everyone is losing (or has lost) to the Buckeyes. Purdue has done very well to be the second-place team in the Big Ten to this point in the season. That’s because coach Matt Painter’s team has been playing without star wing Robbie Hummel. The senior was going to make Purdue a primary Final Four contender, so when he got injured just before the season started, people felt that the Boilermakers were done. That opinion has not been proven to be accurate. With JaJuan Johnson in the paint and the guard combo of Lewis Jackson and E’Twaun Moore on the perimeter, the Boilermakers are balanced and formidable. They could sneak into the Final Four if they get a perfect NCAA Tournament draw.

How The Game Will Play Out

The Boilermakers will indeed get revenge. Minnesota won’t find it as easy to run the floor on the road. This game will be played on the Purdue campus at Mackey Arena in West Lafayette, Indiana. Teams that play at home are regularly able to shape the tempo the way they prefer. Give Purdue a clear advantage this weekend.
