Purdue -2.5 at -110 for 3 units. #EmotinalHedgeAlert VCU doesn’t have the ability to guard a true 7-footer like Matt Haarms. I say this as a VCU grad that has been to 3 games this year. This VCU team is great and could make a deep tournament run, but I think they lose in their second stiff test of the season (beating LSU was the first one). Some of Marcus Evans, De’Riante Jenkins, Vann, Crowfield, and Hyland could get hot from deep. Haarms could get in foul trouble, but on a neutral floor I like going with the team that has the better post presence. Also, Purdue know they need a marquee win after losing to Texas and Marquette already. I like Santos-Silva a lot, VCU’s main big man, but I think he will struggle today. As a VCU fan, I hope he proves me wrong, but as a gambler..
