Virginia Cavaliers at Purdue Boilmakers
Virginia at Purdue: This is art of the ACC-Big Ten Showdown on ESPN and you shouldn’t expect a lot of points.
The Boilermakers are 31st in offensive efficiency, and their almost-40 percent offensive rebounding rate (fifth best in the country) creates second-chance opportunities, but, with Carsen Edwards now in the NBA, they don’t shoot it particularly well.
Purdue also has the No. 7 defense. The Boilermakers should be 2-point favorites with a total of 98 (98!) tonight, according to KenPom.
Purdue is 4-3 and 3-4 against the spread this season. The undefeated Cavaliers are just 1-6 ATS. The under, however, is a combined 12-2 in the teams’ games this season.
Will Las Vegas linemakers really put up a sub-100 over/under UNDER
