Bet on College Basketball - Michigan Wolverines look to keep it going against Purdue Boilermakers
Monday, March 4th, 2013By Evan MacKay
College Basketball Betting Online: The Michigan Wolverines take to the road on Wednesday to battle the Purdue Boilermakers in a game that everyone expects the Wolverines to handle convincingly.
After all, this is the #7 team in the country about to face a side with a record below .500 that they beat by 15 earlier in the year.
Still, many who bet on college basketball using the Wolverines in their last road game were sorely disappointed, as they watch Michigan fall in one of the biggest upsets of the year, a 6-point loss to the then conference winless Penn State Nittany Lions.
It was the first bad loss of the season for the Wolverines, as the other four came against the likes of Ohio State, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Michigan State. Michigan got revenge on their instate rivals on Sunday with a narrow 58-57 win in Ann Arbor.
However, we have stumbled across a pattern here. The Wolverines, while dominant at home (18-0 on the year and 8-0 in conference) are just 3-5 on an opponent’s floor. I want to say that this game against Purdue will be easy, but considering their road woes this season, I cannot.
Purdue, meanwhile, comes into this game off a big win on the road against #17 Wisconsin. It is not as though that win will get them into the tournament or anything, a bid from the selection committee has long been off the table, but it is an encouraging sign considering the 1-4 mark they held in their previous 5 outings.
For me, this one all depends on the live lines. If they list the spread large in favor of Michigan, then you go with the home team. However, if it is narrow, as in less than 5, then you go with the favorites. I like Michigan to win this one by about 6.
