Purdue enters tonight's game losing two of their last three, while Maryland has won four of their last five. The Boilermakers are coming off a loss against Northwestern and will be looking to bounce back against Maryland. Maryland has had an up-and-down season so far, but they've been playing well lately.
The Boilermakers are now 1-2 in their last three games against Big Ten foes, but they are still in first place in the Big Ten. They will need to bounce back quickly if they want to keep their season championship hopes alive. Purdue is led by Zach Edey who is averaging 22.2 points per game. Eddy has been a big part of the Boilermakers' success this season, averaging 22.2 points per game while shooting 62% from the field and 74% from the charity Stripe.
Purdue beat Maryland just under a month in a very completive game 58-55. Since 2015 these two teams have met 13 times with Purdue winning 8 of those matches. Historically when these two teams have met, they have played each other competitively and this game shouldn’t be any different.

This game looks to be a very competitive game with Purdue struggling as of late, and Maryland playing their best basketball of the season. However, I look for Purdue to get back on track with this game and would be surprised if they take the loss. With the spread only being 1.5 points, the best bet here is to bet Purdue to cover. I do think Maryland keeps this game close. I envision this game coming down to the wire, with Maryland having to extend the game at the end sending Purdue to the free-throw line multiple times. Purdue ha been lights out from the charity stripe and I think the win this game by 5 or more points.
Both teams can throw up some big points in a game. Both teams averaging over 70 points per game. The only scenario I see these two teams scoring under 132 tonight is if the games become a defensively driven physical game. However, I do not envision that being the case. I was acutely surprised when I saw this over under line, I anticipated it being right around 140. If I was a 140 I would advise to stay away from betting the over under in this game. With the over under being at 132 in this game I would say it’s a pretty good bet to bet the Over.
