Purdue showed up after the Big Ten Conference Tournament Finals against Iowa, and became the 3rd seed in the East Division. They will face Ivy League winner Yale, who won a thriller against Princeton on Sunday afternoon.
Purdue’s Matt Painter boils down to having one of the most electrical crimes in the country with janitor Jaden Ivey and big man Trevion Williams, but there will be a tough test with 14th seed Yale in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
Here are the odds from WynnBET Sportsbook, as well as each team’s statistical records and best bets:
Total: 143 (Above -110/Under -110)
I’m curious to see how Purdue does after finishing its uncharacteristically underwhelming season, losing two of their last three regular games before winning a pair of Big Ten Tournament games with single digits. Best.
The team’s defense is a serious concern, ranking 100th in KenPom’s adjusted for defensive effectiveness, and Yale has a microwave guard in Azar Swain, who ranks 31st nationally for shot rate.
With that said, Purdue will get whatever it wants when it comes to attacking a defense inside the vulnerable Bulldogs, which ranks 233 out of 2 percentage points allowed.
I lean towards the top in this match as both attacks will work quickly, Yale is 86th in adjusted tempo while Purdue boasts third best tuned strike efficiency. The soccer team is usually placed in the 150 ranks and I see them flirting with the number 90 in the first round.
LEAN: OVER 143 (-110)
