Free Spread Prediction: Purdue Fort Wayne Mastodons -18

If you’re deciding whether to down a bet vs the spread in this matchup, we recommend taking the IUPUI Jaguars to cover as +18 point underdogs. One thing that often causes problems for team’s who are heavy underdogs is when they are matched up against a team that can dictate the pace of play. However, both IUPUI and Purdue Fort Wayne come into today’s game near the NCAA average in possessions per game. Given that style of place won’t be an issue for the Jaguars and the fact that they have 4-1 vs the spread in their last 5 games as underdogs, we like them to cover the spread on their away floor.
