Why #3 Purdue Boilermakers a good bet +1?

Minnesota upset Tennessee 75-73 in the Big Ten Tournament. But, the Purdue Boilermakers have turned it on since then. In their first couple of NCAA Tournament games, they’ve been as impressive as any team in the tournament.

They dominated Old Dominion 61-48, but that was nothing compared to what they did to defending champion Villanova in the second round. Purdue pummeled the Wildcats 87-61. The Boilermakers are just playing better than the Vols right now. They’ve got a shot at marching to the Elite Eight.

Why #2 Tennessee Volunteers are a good bet -1?

Is Tennessee a safe bet in the Sweet 16?

Tennessee ran out to a 25-point lead in their second round game against the Iowa Hawkeyes. The Hawkeyes made a furious rally to tie it up. In overtime, Tennessee handled Iowa for the very good 83-77 win.

The Vols had their tough tournament game. Now that they got by Iowa, Tennessee should relax and play basketball the way they know how to. That means locking down on defense and shooting lights out on the other end of the court.

Purdue vs Tennessee Final March Madness Betting Analysis

Tennessee played exceptionally well to run out to the lead versus the Hawkeyes. But allowing the Hawkeyes to get back into the game is a bad sign. First, nobody on Tennessee’s team decided to take charge and prevent the comeback.

Second, Vols coach Rick Barnes had no answer from keeping Iowa from coming back. Both point to Purdue getting it done on Thursday. The Boilermakers are most definitely the best team Tennessee’s faced so far in the NCAA Tournament. They’ll send the Volunteers home for the offseason.
