Reaching the middle of the week, and continuing with the NCAA college basketball activity, we once again have the privilege of enjoying several games, including the New Orleans vs Purdue.
Perhaps this game is not among the most attractive ones of the day, because of the disparity between the teams, but it is worth watching for the fact that the Boilermakers are big favorites to win this season’s title.

Betting onNew Orleans Privateers
The New Orleans Privateers’ season is turning out to be a complete disaster. The team has not been able to bounce back up, and after playing nine games, they are the worst team in the Southland Conference. Although they are not the team with the higest amount of lost games, they are the team with the fewest wins, with only two victories, one against St. Francis and another one to IUPUI.
They have four consecutive losses so far, which include one against Denver, one against Louisiana, another one against Portland and the final one against Boise State. All this makes them the worst team in their conference, a team that has been performing very badly in its last five games, and a team for which a win would hardly change its current situation.
Betting on the Purdue Boilermakers
The Purdue Boilermakers have exceeded expectations after the first month of activity in the college basketball season. They have made it clear why they are considered the top favorites, as they are the only undefeated team in the Big Ten Conference.
The collective and individual talent has been outstanding in the 11 games they have won, making the team register the fourth highest number of points scored (848). Purdue’s most difficult game so far was against Nebraska, a conference rival, as it went to overtime after a 56-56 tie, They ended up taking a 65-62 win. In his last performance Purdue defeated Davidson 69-61.
The difference between the two institutions is abysmal, and we do not say this only because of the current record each team has. Even if New Orleans arrived to this game with a favorable record, they would hardly be an uncomfortable opponent for Purdue, so expect the Boilermakers to continue to extend their undefeated record with a fairly comfortable win.
Prediction: Purdue Boilermakers win by 20 points.
