Pick by FOX Sports Betting Analyst Sam Panayotovich:
“I spoke to several professional bettors down on Purdue and you will be seeking to short the team a lot. Its tough to disagree with those sentiments, given just how much the Boilermakers exceeded expectations and just how much offensive firepower they need to replace.
“Lets buy low on James Franklin’s bunch andlay the points.”
