Purdue Boilermakers March Madness Odds For Sweet 16 And Beyond

It’s been a good time to be a fan of and bet on the Purdue Boilermakers.

The team was never really in danger against Yale in the first round of the NCAA Tournament and cruised to a 78-56 win, making fans and sports bettors happy that they covered the 16.5-point spread. Texas put up more of a fight in the second round, but the Boilermakers made fans and bettors happy again, winning 81-71 to cover as 3.5-point favorites.

Next up for Purdue will be a Sweet Sixteen matchup with this year’s Cinderella team, the No. 15 Saint Peter’s Peacocks. Indiana sportsbooks have installed the Boilermakers as a heavy 12.5-point favorite, but Kentucky (-18.5) and Murray State (-8) were favorites against Saint Peter’s, too and it didn’t matter.
