One Game Separates Purdue and Ohio State in Big Ten

The fans at Mackey Arena will see the 14th-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes and the 3rd-ranked Purdue Boilermakers when they take their seats on Wednesday. Tip-off for this key Big Ten matchup is set for 8:30. The Big Ten Network will have the telecast.

Oddsmakers opened the Boilermakers as -8.5-point favorites versus the Buckeyes, while the game’s total opened at 144.5. The line is now Purdue -10 and the total has went up to 145.5.

The Buckeyes trail Purdue by one game in the conference standings with six games remaining. A win Wednesday would force Purdue into a must-win situation Saturday at No. 4 Michigan State. Ohio State defeated the Spartans 80-64 on Jan. 7. The Boilermakers lead Michigan State by 1.5 games.

Purdue is Tough at Home

Purdue was a 78-76 winner in its last match on the road against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. They failed to cover the -15.5-point spread as favorites.

The Boilermakers own the second-longest home win streak in the nation. The streak is 21 straight at Mackey Arena dating back to 2015. They will face arguably their toughest individual matchup of the season tonight in Ohio State forward Kieta Bates-Diop.

Purdue also holds the nation’s longest active win streak, at 17 straight games.

The Boilermakers are the top scoring team in the conference. They are averaging 84 points. Purdue also ranks third in scoring defense, allowing 64.2.

Ohio State Brings Talented Lineup to Purdue

Ohio State won its last outing, a 75-67 result against the Illinois Fighting Illini on February 04. They failed to cover in that game as a -13-point favorite.

Ohio State forward Kieta Bates-Diop is widely considered the top candidate for Big Ten Player of the Year. He is the conference’s leading scorer, averaging 20.2 points, and ranks third in rebounds at 8.9.
