Big Ten Conference

Northwestern at Purdue odds, picks and prediction

Geoff Clark | USA Today SportsbookwireThe Northwestern Wildcats (3-0) meet the Purdue Boilermakers (2-0) Saturday in a Big Ten showdown at 5 p.m.

It makes sense, as Purdue is an undefeated home team playing against a conference rival, coming off a bye week and is the program with a richer football history.

Furthermore, I wouldn't recommend buying the number from 3.5 down to Northwestern -2.5 (-139) since you can just pay an extra 37 cents on the dollar for an outright win.

The weather forecast predicts a cool (45 degrees), rainy (50% chance of rain) and windy (16 mph projected winds) Northwestern-Purdue game.

Northwestern's defense is one of the best units in the Big Ten and money has been hitting the Under, bringing the total down to its current number.
