Ohio State Buckeyes vs. Purdue Boilermakers

Purdue Looks to Boiler Up as Betting on NCAA Football Dog to Bucks

Purdue has ignited to become one of the hottest teams for betting on NCAA Football.  Correlate the Boilermakers run of three wins and four payouts in a row. But what is most frustrating for Purdue fans is that they know that they could easily be undefeated.  In short, their three straight losses to start the year were all self-inflicted wounds.  By contrast undefeated Ohio State has been dropping in board value.  In fact, the Buckeyes have slipped into full throttle overlay status as of late.  Starting with a defense that has slipped and allowing teams through the back door.

Ohio State vs. Purdue TV Coverage:  ABC

Ohio State Buckeyes

Ohio State is 7-0 straight up and 3-4 vs. the line. Against Minnesota at home last week the Bucks failed to cover a 30-14 win.  In the same way Ohio State has failed to cover their last three games.  Cause by strong offense and slumping defense OSU has gone under the total four times this season.  Overall the Bucks rank second in the nation for total offense but 58th for defense.

Purdue Boilermakers

Balanced against that is Purdue’s record of 3-3 straight up and 4-2 against the spread.  The Boilers are coming off a 46-7 payout at Illinois last week for their third straight win.  As a consequence of the nation’s 10th ranked offense has the Boilermakers found their stride.

Purdue Stats

Purdue has a mixed betting on NCAA Football record as a home dog.   In fact, The Boilers have covered their last two getting points at home.  On the other hand, they have paid in just five of their last 20 in that situation.  And Purdue has gone over the total in 10 of their last 12 as a home pup.

Ohio State Stats

Balanced against that is Ohio State’s subpar betting value as a road favorite.  For example, the Buckeyes have paid in just four of their last 10 laying points on the road.  Further, OSU has gone over the total in five of their last six laying points on the road.

Team vs Team

Above all Purdue has had the offshore bookmaker advantage in this head to head series.  Supplementing that is the Boilers record of seven payouts in their last ten games with Ohio State.  Eight of the last ten meetings in this series went under the total.  By contrast at Ross Ade Stadium Purdue has paid in five of their last seven against the Buckeyes.  Five of the last six between these teams at Purdue have gone under the total.
