Purdue Vs. Florida State – NCAA College Basketball Picks | Betting Odds
Even if the Florida State Seminoles men’s basketball team, dropped their last game against Villanova, it’s not up for debate they are a having a better season than the football team in 2018. The Seminoles will seek to bounce back when they host the Purdue Boilermakers in the ACC/BIG TEN Challenge. The game will be played Donald L. Tucker Center, in Tallahassee, Florida on Wednesday Night.
Purdue Boilermakers Vs. Florida State Predictions
Florida State is always looking to make an impact when they get to March. They won’t win the National Championship game, but they for sure will advance to the middle pack, making the life of the favorites a lot harder. The Seminoles are listed at Mybookie.ag +7000 to win the College Basketball Championship. I like the Seminoles style of basketball, I must be honest. Their games are usually high scoring affairs, and they are not afraid to go toe to toe with anybody. It’s very early in the season, but they are already taken a few tough opponents. Wins over Florida and LSU are good enough for me to keep an eye on Florida State every time they jump on the court.
Their loss against Villanova, however, had a lot of room for them to be better. The Seminoles shot just 43% from the field and had four turnovers more than the Wildcats. Florida State averages 79.0 points per game, but that night nothing went their way. Purdue is not quite tested like Florida State. I get that’s only the first month of competition, but their schedule has been soft, and it has helped them put a 5-1 record. Each of their five wins this season has been by more than a double-digit margin. But their single loss was against the only ranked team they have faced so far. Their 89-83 defeat to Virginia Tech opened the eyes for many, including me. Their wins were against Fairfield, Ball State, Appalachian State, Davidson, and Robert Morris. Those are far away from being challengers. Purdue is listed at Mybookie.ag at +5000 to win the title.
The Boilermakers are averaging 85.0 points per game at the start of the season, but their schedule has a lot to do with it. Their next three games will tell a lot about this team. Not only are they about to visit Florida State in Tallahassee, but they have a visit to Michigan as well, and then they host Maryland. All three teams are ranked and will give Purdue a sense of reality. These two schools haven’t played each other since 2005. Then, the Seminoles recorded a victory by 40-points. The Boilermakers have come a long way since then as a basketball program, so a result like that is out of the question. Nevertheless, Florida State is a little more battle-tested at this point in the season. I feel like I know who they are and that’s good enough for me. Bet the Seminoles to win by 7.
