Thoughts: Michigan defeated Minnesota in their last outing while Purdue took care of West Virginia. I expect the crowd to be jacked up in Ann Arbor for this one. Look for Purdue to keep this game somewhat close but in the end the Wolverines will take this one. With that said, I’d take Purdue with the points here.
