The 2022-23 NCAA college basketball season is finally here. The action continues on Tuesday, Nov. 8 with another slate of intriguing matchups, including a 6:30 p.m. ET showdown between the Milwaukee Panthers and Purdue Boilermakers.

Milwaukee already opened its campaign up with a victory, scoring a 102-46 blowout win over the Milwaukee School of Engineering on Monday. Meanwhile, Purdue hopes to build on last year's success that saw the Boilermakers go 25-6 in the regular season (14-6 vs. Big Ten) before losing in the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Tournament.

Milwaukee vs Purdue Prediction & Pick

This is just the second time that Milwaukee and Purdue have met. Their only other matchup took place back in 2005, resulting in a 73-68 victory for the Boilermakers.

Though a lot has changed over the last 17 years, one thing that hasn't is Milwaukee's struggles against stiffer competition. The Panthers are a putrid 2-16 straight up in its last 18 games against Big Ten schools. Meanwhile, Purdue has won each of its last six meetings against the Horizon League.

It's also worth noting that Purdue had the 10th-best offense in the nation last season. Even with the Boilermakers losing names like Jaden Ivey and Trevion Williams over the offseason, Matt Painter is a terrific coach and will get the most out of his current players in his 18th season behind the bench.

Including the fact that Milwaukee's offense didn't even rank inside the top 300 in 2021-22, it's easy to see Purdue cruising to an easy victory tonight.

Final Score Prediction: Purdue: 85 | Milwaukee: 56

Milwaukee vs Purdue Best Bet

A 26.5-point spread is huge, but I'm confident that Purdue can cover. Milwaukee has struggled against the spread (ATS), going 1-7 ATS in its last eight road games. With Purdue winning each of its last eight home games and averaging 84.5 PPG at Mackey Arena, I'm expecting a Boilermakers blowout victory.

Bet: Purdue -26.5 (-106)
