Purdue vs Minnesota Prediction & Pick
Purdue may have won 33 of its previous 77 games against Minnesota, but the rivalry has leaned in the Golden Gophers' favor over the last decade. Minnesota has won eight of its last nine matchups against its Big Ten rival, including last year's meeting by a final score of 20-13.
At the end of the day, I think Minnesota's defense will be too much for Purdue to handle. The Golden Gophers are surrendering the fewest points and offensive yards in the nation and can hang with the best offenses.
Due to the Boilermakers' knack for coming up short this season, I'm siding with Minnesota.
Final Score Prediction: Minnesota: 30 | Purdue: 21

Purdue vs Minnesota Best Bet

Even though Minnesota has recently dominated Purdue in the head-to-head series, the last few games have been somewhat close. Each of the Golden Gophers' last three victories has been by one possession with an average win margin of 5.7 points.
I have full confidence that Minnesota win, but I do anticipate a closer game than the odds reply. Taking that in mind, I'm going with Purdue on the 11.5-point spread.
Bet: Purdue +11.5 (-105)
