After winning a school record 19 games in a row, Purdue has dropped two straight. The Boilermakers blew a 14-point second-half lead on Wednesday to fall, 64-63, to Ohio State. Then Matt Painter’s team, having led by as many as 10 points, lost to No. 4 Michigan State on a last-second three-pointer from Miles Bridges.
The Boilers will have five days between games to get over the tough losses before traveling to Madison to take on the Wisconsin Badgers on Thursday. Can Purdue get back to its winning ways? More importantly, should gamblers bet or fade the Boilermakers?
