Why Hofstra Will Win - I'm having a very difficult time finding a scenario where this happens. If Purdue can avoid major injuries and keep from shooting threes all game, it's not going to happen.
One thing you absolutely need to know before the game - This is the final game on BTDN for the season! Check out our Newberry post to figure out how to watch it. But honestly? It's not going to be that exciting of a game, so I suggest enjoying the last nice day of the year outside, and if you've paid for the online access, watching the replay of the game tonight. If you haven't already paid for it? Check out the recap here tomorrow and just watch the replay of the game Wednesday at 3:00 pm on BTN. This one alone is not worth the $9.95 folks.
Our Picks - We like to think we're better than Vegas. So throughout the season, we'll be "betting" a whole dollar amount versus the spread between $1 and $32, but we can't repeat the same value twice. At the end of the year, we'll see if we would have made enough money to make a move to Vegas worth it. The spread for this game is Purdue by 18.
