Purdue Boilermakers Betting Trends: Looking to Accomplish Something 70 Years in the Making

(November 26, 2022) Purdue to date was having one of its better seasons.  Ahead of their November 26 game versus the Hoosiers, the Boilermakers record Straight Up sat at 7-4.  They were not having as much success Against The Spread however, as Purdue had only covered in four games up to this point.

A win against Indiana, and Purdue can claim the Old Oaken Bucket trophy for the fourth time in five years.  Purdue would also go to Indianapolis for the Big Ten Championship and their first-ever outright Big Ten championship in the conference’s 70-year history.

"You have a lot that you're playing for," Purdue quarterback Aidan O'Connell said. "A lot of people talk about postseason stuff, whether it's a bowl game or whatever it is. We preach it's a one-game season. It's not that we're blind and we don't see it, but it's to make sure we're locked in."

Purdue has plenty to prove as the Boilermakers are yet to win their side of the Big Ten since 2011. Purdue has not won the Big Ten since it claimed the conference way back in 2000.

“I think we’ve got a big week ahead of us,” Purdue head coach Jeff Brohm said in a press conference on Monday.

“We have to have a good week of practice, and like always, get better, continue to try to find a way to improve, and eliminate mistakes, become more efficient, and try to finish this regular season as strong as we can,” he said.

The line on this game was a solid -10.5 favoring the Boilermakers.
