Northwestern Huskies vs Purdue Boilermakers 1/23/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Northwestern Huskies will go against the #4 Purdue Boilermakers in a Big Ten Conference showdown in Mackey Arena West Lafayette, IN, on Sunday, January 23, 2022, at 1:00 PM (EST). This Wildcat squad has a lot of grit, in my opinion.

 

Northwestern struggled to win anything in recent weeks, despite a win over Michigan State in the middle of a four-game losing run. The Northwestern Wildcats have the offensive firepower to keep up with the Boilermakers.

 

The Wildcats have an adjusted offensive efficiency rating of 110.7, according to KenPom. This would place them as the nation’s 48th most efficient squad.

 

On offense, the Huskies have two major advantages. This year, the Wildcats did an outstanding job of distributing the basketball. In terms of assists per game, Northwestern is rated sixth in the country.

 

Northwestern is generating 77.6 points per game this season and will need to go close to that figure if they want a chance to beat the nation’s fourth-ranked club. Northwestern also performs admirably on the defensive end of the field. According to KenPom, the Wildcats are allowing 98.3 points per 100 possessions.

 

Northwestern would be the 84th most efficient defensive team in the country based on this. Purdue has several offensive options and likes to share the ball, so Northwestern will have to play even better than this against them.

 

The Wildcats will have to keep the ball safe since they are currently ranked 6th in the country in terms of average turnovers per game. Purdue is not eligible for any free points.

 

  • The University of Northwestern Huskies is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 matches.
  • Northwestern is 0-9 SU in their last 9 matches against Purdue.
  • The total went OVER in 5 of Northwestern’s last 6 matches in the Big Ten Conference.

Northwestern Huskies vs Purdue Boilermakers Predictions 1/23/2022

 

So far this year, the fourth-ranked Purdue Boilermakers can overwhelm their opponents. Most of their success may be attributed to the fact that these guys have one of the finest offensive lineups I’ve ever seen.

 

With an average of 85 points per game, they are ranked fourth in the country in points scored per game. In terms of average three-point percentage, they are ranked sixth in the country. 

 

Purdue is also a formidable opponent on defense. According to KenPom, they only permit 97.2 points to be recorded on them every 100 possessions. As excellent as these players are in their offensive, they also put in the effort on defense.

 

Purdue is allowing 67.8 points per game and will need to contain the Wildcat attack if they want to win this match.

 

The Boilermakers are also a strong rebounding club, allowing few additional possessions to their opponents. In terms of rebounds per game, they are rated 11th in the country. They’re also a strong defensive club in the first half.

 

Purdue is 54th in the US in terms of average points surrendered in the opening 20 minutes. In the first half, Purdue is averaging less than 30 points against them. Expect the Boilermakers to shut down the Wildcats in this game.

 

  • The University of Purdue Boilermakers is 3-8 ATS in their last 11 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 7 of Purdue’s last 9 matches against Northwestern.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of Purdue’s last 5 matches in the Big Ten Conference.

Northwestern Huskies vs #4 Purdue Boilermakers. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Northwestern Huskies. I’m praying Northwestern finds a way to get shots up and that enough of them go in to keep this game competitive.

 

Purdue is also just 9-9 ATS this season, and they did not cover against the top teams, so I’m not optimistic about them covering this spread. The Huskies will win to a predicted score of 77-65.
