The line on the Butler-Purdue game was coming in at Boilermakers -3.5.   Scroll Down for More

This is one of the biggest underlays we have seen in the tournament thus far as the Power Ratings suggest the line here should be Purdue -6.5.

Purdue destroyed Cal Fullerton Friday but they suffered a serious injury in the process, which might explain the significant underlay.

The Boilermakers center Isaac Haas broke his right elbow in Purdue’s 74-48 victory on Friday and will miss the rest of the NCAA Tournament.  Haas will need to get surgery.

7-3 center Matt Haarms will replace Haas.  He averaged 14.7 points and 5.7 rebounds per game and had nine points and 10 rebounds in the first-round victory.  Purdue will likely lean more on star guard Carsen Edwards. He scored 13 of his 15 points in the first half.

Butler, a number 10 seed, easily beat the favorite Arkansas in their first round game, 79-62.
