Purdue Ohio State Betting – Buckeyes Try To Preserve Unbeaten Record In Major Clash

Posted by Washington Tucker on 2/6/2014 12:57:00 AM

The Ohio State Buckeyes and Purdue Boilermakers have been the class of the Big Ten this season. They now meet in one of the biggest games of the month of January.

Why To Bet On Purdue

The calculus in this game could tilt toward coach Matt Painter’s Boilermakers, who are playing really well at the moment despite the absence of their best player. Superstar wing Robbie Hummel got knocked out for the season before it even started. Hummel gave Purdue scoring balance and the ability to spread the floor in halfcourt sets, so many thought that the Boilers were cooked when Hummel went down. However, they can very readily score without him, and last Saturday proved as much. Purdue scored 86 points in a 10-point win over a Michigan State team that normally plays some of the best defense in the country. E’Twaun Moore lit up Michigan State for 26 points in a dominating display against MSU guard Kalin Lucas, who was just 3-of-16 from the floor. Purdue big man JaJuan Johnson poured in 20 points and Lewis Jackson added 19, as the Boilers hit 58 percent of their field goal attempts while earning 30 free throws (making 22). Purdue’s three-pronged attack could outflank Ohio State, who had only one player – Jared Sullinger – score with any consistency in a Saturday escape at Illinois. No one on the Buckeyes’ roster other than Sullinger made a field goal in the second half at Illinois until Deshaun Thomas did the deed with 9:33 left in the half.


Why To Bet On Ohio State

Super Bowl betting has the Green Bay Packers as a slim favorite over the Pittsburgh Steelers because the Packers have the biggest superstar on the field, quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Similarly, the online betting skinny in this game is that Ohio State has the best player on the court, big man Jared Sullinger. The freshman has made OSU the No. 1 team in the country because of his relentless work ethic, imposing size, and pronounced agility near the rim. Sullinger scored 20 points and snared 20 rebounds on Saturday against Illinois… in the first 32 minutes of competition. Sullinger was the only Buckeye to hit a field goal in the first 10 minutes and 27 seconds of the second half, but his effort was enough to carry OSU to a 73-68 win against the Fighting Illini. Sullinger is every bit the workhorse of last year’s player of the year, Ohio State guard Evan Turner. He can carry coach Thad Matta’s Buckeyes to yet one more win over Purdue in the Big Ten game of the season.

How The Game Will Play Out

Purdue has more proven scorers, but in Columbus, Ohio, the Boilermakers will have a tough time against the Buckeyes’ role players. Expect Ohio State’s William Buford and David Lighty to play well, and that will carry the Buckeyes to a win on their home court.
