#880 PURDUE (-) over Nebraska at 6:30 PM EST With a pair of road tests on deck at Illinois and Indiana, No. 7 Purdue will make sure it takes care of business when Nebraska visits on Friday evening. The Cornhuskers limp into West Lafayette on a dismal 1-9 SU (5-5 ATS) run and they don't match up well at all in this Big 10 battle. At home in this series, the Boilermakers have performed well inking a solid 6-0 SU and 4-2 ATS record in the last six meetings. Equally impressive, inside Mackey Arena checking in off a pointspread loss, PU holds a respectable 165-34 SU and 112-66-4 ATS mark including a magnificent 84-8 SU and 57-24-2 ATS in this spot provided its opponent busts in without confidence off a straight up loss. With those two parameters live and head coach Matt Painter's boys facing a foe that played in the comforts of home last, this situation tightens up to a sensational 39-4 SU and 31-11 ATS including 35-4 SU and 30-8 ATS provided the Boilers are not off a blowout win of 11 points or more. The road has not been kind to the Big Red either. In fact, as a guest running the court against an opponent that enters off a pointspread loss, the Cornhuskers have been at their financial worst 29-90 SU and 43-74-2 ATS tally. In this run priced as a hefty underdog of +11 or more, Nebraska falls to a miserable 10-28-1 ATS including a horrendous 3-21-1 ATS if it played in Lincoln last. With those three parameters in play and the Huskers fighting a foe that owns a team won/loss percentage between .615 and .875, this situation crashes to a shocking 0-21 ATS! Coach Painter owns a Big 10 record of 199-112 SU, and his kids will be focused on picking up victory No. 200 for their leader. The Boilers high-octane offense (avg 85.1 ppg) will have no trouble extending the margin against a Cornhusker stop unit that is ranked 333rd in the NCAA in scoring defense. Take Purdue. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
