Nebraska Cornhuskers vs #7 Purdue Boilermakers. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #7 Purdue Boilermakers. Given how badly Nebraska played on both sides of the court during the Big Ten play, Purdue’s prospects at home are hard to dismiss.

 

The Boilermakers are the finest offensive team in the country, owing in large part to big man Trevion Williams, who established himself as a go-to scorer in the paint. Purdue also causes a lot of damage on the offensive boards, which is a problem for Nebraska this season. In this matchup on Thursday night, take the Boilermakers to cover the spread at home. The #7 Purdue Boilermakers will win but miss to cover the ATS 87-71.
