This line may look steep on paper but I think it goes to show how strong Purdue is to start the year and how this could be a tough year for Sean Miller’s bunch. With Freemantle and Hunter on the shelf for the year, an already inexperienced and depleted Musketeers team took a huge hit. It hasn’t mattered from a W/L perspective for Xavier against Robert Morris or JU at home, but on the road against arguably the top team in the nation,  I think this is a really tough spot. Xavier has been excellent from two-point range in its first two games but now has to face one of the best frontcourts in the nation led by Edey. The lack of a true perimeter game + a questionable rebounding team makes this matchup not ideal for Xavier. Purdue’s offense has looked razor sharp against decent mid-major schools and I don’t think Xavier will be able to keep up. There is no doubt that Matt Painter’s teams have been a complete disaster when it comes to postseason play, but in the regular season, these Boilermakers tend to make a few statements, especially at home. I think we see a 20-point + victory at home here for Purdue.

Ron’s Pick Purdue Boilermakers: -15 -110
