Michigan is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.

Purdue has won three consecutive games and six of eight after a shaky start. The Boilermakers routed West Virginia 79-52 in a non-conference contest in their last outing. Purdue is 2-2 on the road, including a conference victory over Nebraska. Freshman center A.J. Hammons is a huge presence in the interior as the 7-foot, 280-pounder leads the Boilermakers in blocked shots (37) and rebounding (6.3) and ranks third on the team in scoring at 10.3. Hammons is averaging 12.2 points, eight rebounds and 3.4 blocks in five Big Ten games. Junior guard Terone Johnson averages a team-leading 13.3 points and senior wing D.J. Byrd contributes 10.4. Purdue has held three straight opponents to 33.3 percent or lower from the field, including limiting Penn State to 25.9 percent and West Virginia to 29.3. They'll try and make this a halfcourt game and use their bulk against a talented Michigan team. Purdue has won six of the last eight meetings and will have no problem going in their with confidence. They might not get the upset but their defense is solid enough to make this a much closer game than the spread indicates.
