No. 21 Indiana basketball hosts the No. 1 Purdue Boilermakers on Saturday at 4 PM EST on ESPN. Could we see a repeat as we saw last season in Assembly Hall?
Take away the rankings next to Indiana and Purdue and it’s still considered one of the best rivalries in all of college hoops. Right there next to Duke/North Carolina, who also play on Saturday after the Indiana vs. Purdue game.
Purdue leads the all-time series over Indiana, 125-90, winning 13 of the last 15 matchups and six of the last eight games in Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall.
What does Mike Woodson have to do to get Indiana closer to even with its biggest rival in his career for the Hoosiers? So far, Coach Woodson is 1-1 against the Boilermakers, splitting last season’s series with both home teams winning. Could we see a repeat performance by Woodson’s Hoosiers team on Saturday?

Indiana basketball vs. Purdue best bet: Hoosiers ML & Over 139.5

A $100 parlay bet on the Hoosiers to win the game and cover the over 139.5 points could potentially bring in a profit of $244.77. Currently, ESPN Analytics has the Hoosiers with a 51.2 percent chance to take down the No. 1 team in the country in Assembly Hall.
