Purdue vs Wisconsin Final NCAAB Analysis:

This is a really important game for the Purdue Boilermakers. For the first time in what seems like forever, Purdue could get locked out of the NCAA Men’s Collee Basketball Tournament before mid-January. Too many good teams exist in the Big Ten for everyone to go.

Unfortunately, Wisconsin always plays their Big Ten rivals tough. You don’t go 8-2 ATS in the deepest conference in the nation unless you turn on the switch. The Boilermakers have owned he head-to-head, but the Badgers are ready. Wisconsin wins and covers.<?p>
