Purdue is a 19.5 point favorite in a Big Ten road game. that's good, but the Boilers were a double-digit favorite just 8 days ago in Champaign and that didn't go well.

We're not going to learn a lot here. If Purdue wins by a lot that was expected. If Purdue struggles or, God forbid, loses, panic will set in.
