Purdue Preview and Prediction
Matchup: Northwestern Wildcats #23 (3-0) at Purdue Boilermakers (2-0)
Date: Saturday, November 14, 2020, 4:00 p.m. CST. NEW TIME, NEW TIME!!
Line: Northwestern (-2.5) (o/u 50.5)
Outlook: Well, we have the undefeated Wildcats
traveling down I-65 to West Lafayette to play the undefeated
Boilermakers. The Big Ten West championship likely hinges upon
the outcome of this game. Purdue comes off an unexpected COVID
bye week as the Badgers were out of service, heavily affected by the
outbreak. Northwestern is coming off a comeback win over
UNL 21-13 as they once again shut out their opponent in the second
half, and the offense did just enough with key turnovers with the ball
“bouncing” the right way for the ‘Cats. Purdue has been
bitten by the injury bug, as starters Rondale Moore, Jackson Anthrop,
OL Sam Garvin and Cam Craig, and stud DE George Karlaftis will be on
the sideline. Northwestern just needs to pound this
ball over and over again and as fans, WE NEED TO BE
PATIENT. Purdue’s strength is their passing game and they
will get a few big ones off today. Look for Anderson and Brown to
each get about 20 carries. Ramsay will sneak one around the edge
in the fourth quarter.
Pick: 'Cats cover as Purdue cannot hold up
against this defense - 21-14 final. Take the ‘Cats and give
the points as the under pays as well.
Season to Date: 2-1 ATS, 2-1 Straight up
