  • Ball State will travel to Purdue (-13.5) for an in-state matchup at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday night on BTN.
  • Cardinals will look to repeat what they did in an upset win as 19-point underdogs over Notre Dame last year.

On Dec. 6, 2017, Notre Dame was ranked No. 9 in the college basketball polls. Ball State guard Tayler Persons changed the tune of the Fighting Irish’s season that evening, drilling a 3-pointer with under two seconds left to hand the Cardinals a win as an 18-point underdog.

Ball State will attempt to knock off another top-25 program from Indiana on Saturday when it faces Purdue for the first time since December 2012. Let’s take a quick look at the matchup from a betting perspective, focusing on two critical areas: Pace and rebounding.
