Thursday Sweet 16 Free Betting Pick Purdue VS Kansas

Kansas -5, O/U 157

In the first 2 games of the NCAA tournament Purdue took care of business for themselves and their backers at the betting window as they covered in both games and they hit the fan favorite “Over” on the total. In game 1 Purdue was favored by 8.5 points against Vermont. The game was close the whole way until a late Purdue run secured a 10 point win. In Game 2 Purdue faced Iowa St favored by 1. Purdue blitzed Iowa St in the first half and led by 13 at halftime and withstood an Iowa St comeback to hold on for the 4 point win and cover. Their opponent in the Sweet Sixteen, Kansas matched Purdue by not only winning their first 2 games but scoring the cover and “Over” combo in both. Kansas looked like a #1 seed in every way, dismantling Cal-Davis and Michigan St by a combined 58 points.

For this RideTheHotHand free pick we are going after the total of 157. Kansas’ offense just looks to be clicking on all cylinders. Guards Frank Mason and Josh Jackson are arguably the best tandem in the tournament combining to score 82 points in the first 2 games. When they aren’t scoring with unbelievable finishes at the rim, they are kicking out to Devonte Graham who has been a sniper from 3. Purdue on the other hand definitely has the firepower to score with Kansas. Caleb Swanigan and Vince Edwards combined for 78 points in their first 2 games and they scored 80 points in each game. That means this game is going OVER right? WRONG. Purdue was willing to play fast against their 1st two opponents because they had the talent edge in both games. They will not have the talent edge against Kansas. If they run with Kansas they can score 80 points again but will watch the Elite 8 on TV. Purdue needs to slow Kansas down, play strong halfcourt defense and keep this game in the high 140’s. This game tops out at 150. THE PICK: UNDER 157.
