Ohio State +1 for 3 units. Penn State beat OSU earlier in the season so this is a revenge game for the Buckeyes. OSU has a slightly better offense and defense, but this small difference may not matter as much in rivalry games like this. OSU will most likely have the Big 10 coach and player of the year in Chris Holtmann and Kevin Bates-Diop respectively. OSU lost to Penn State on a last second half court bank shot by Tony Carr. Kam Williams should be back for this game for OSU as well. I like the revenge angle and OSU’s ability to play defense with lengthy big guys that can switch on pick and rolls.
Purdue -10 for 2 units. Purdue has the advantage on defense and inside. Wisconsin is missing 2 of their 4 best guards and their big men have not played to their potential this season. Purdue won this game by 28 earlier this season and I expect another double digit win here.
Arizona State +1 for 1 unit. Another revenge game here. Arizona State lost this game by 6 at Arizona earlier this season. The Sun Devils have been playing a lot better on defense lately and the home crowd should give them an added boost. Arizona State has beat Xavier and Kansas this year, so they can compete with the some of the best schools in the country. Arizona does have the height advantage inside, but Arizona State averages more rebounds. ASU got a lot of shots blocked in the first matchup and I think they will make the necessary adjustments to pull out the home win.
