Purdue at Michigan Prediction 1/9/2018
The Wolverines normally try to control the pace of the game, limiting the offensive opportunities of their opponent. I don’t believe that approach will work tonight in Ann Arbor. The Boilermakers are ranked in the top 20 in scoring offense, field-goal percentage and 3-point shooting percentage. Michigan will need to rely on their recent sharp shooting to stay in this game (52.5 FG% L5) to keep them a fighting chance in this game.
