FSU Seminoles vs. Purdue Boilermakers Betting Conclusion
The Seminoles are shorthanded for this Big Ten/ACC battle, and they are going to have a difficult time trying to shoot down one of the best teams in the country. FSU might be able to hang with Purdue for a while, as defense hasn’t been a hallmark of Boilermakers basketball to date.

The Boilermakers are led by their twin towers: 6-foot-10 senior forward Trevion Williams and 7-foot-4 sophomore center Zach Edey. Williams and Edey do not share many minutes together, and each has been effective this season.
