Purdue Betting Odds: Boilermakers Are Favorites Against Northwestern

Posted on February 16, 2022

Purdue basketball is entering the final few weeks of its regular season. The latest Purdue betting odds have the team as favorites against Northwestern.

That matchup will be taking place on Feb. 16 at 9 p.m. You can wager on all of the Purdue action thanks to Indiana sports betting.

Purdue vs. Northwestern odds

Purdue is the No. 5-ranked team in the country according to the latest AP Poll.

The black and gold have bounced around a bit in the rankings this season, but there’s no doubt that Purdue is one of the best college teams in the entire country.

If you’ve been betting on Purdue basketball this year, then you’re already familiar with Jaden Ivey. The sophomore guard has been leading the charge for the team all season long.

It’ll come as no surprise for those following the team, but the latest betting odds have Purdue as the heavy favorite for its game against Northwestern.

The odds tell one story, but anything can happen once the teams actually hit the hardwood.

Northwestern recently took down IU, and since IU outplayed Purdue in their last matchup, the Boilermakers might not be in store for a night off against Northwestern.

Purdue March Madness futures

Once the Northwestern game is in the books, Purdue will only have five games left on its calendar.

Everything will culminate in a rematch with IU basketball on March 5. The Boilermakers will be hungry to win that game after losing the first rivalry matchup in Bloomington.

We’re less than a month away from Selection Sunday. In other words, the 2022 March Madness tournament is right around the corner.

March Madness is the biggest sports betting event of the year since there are so many different games taking place over a handful of weeks. The number of options is a dream come true for Hoosiers that like betting on college basketball.

Since Purdue is a top-five team in the entire country, it’s worth checking in with their futures odds ahead of next month’s action.

The Boilermakers are currently +1,100 to win the National Championship this season. Those odds might change, so here’s a look at the live updated odds for the team:


If you’re looking to bet on something more specific, then you can wager on Purdue to win the Big Ten.

Illinois is the current favorite to come out on top of the conference, but Purdue is right on their heels.
