Tennessee Vs. Purdue Odds

  • Purdue +175
  • Spread: Tennessee -6
  • Total: O/U 65

Both Tennessee and Purdue are evenly matched teams as Tennessee finished their season at 7-5 and in fifth place in the SEC while Purdue finished 8-4 and in fifth place in the Big 10. Tennessee though has been given the slight advantage on online sportsbooks being that Purdue is going to be without two of their starters.

Purdue is set to be without wide receiver, Milton Wright and defensive back, Dedrick Mackey. That goes in addition to them already being without David Bell and George Karlaftis as well.

Being that Purdue is going to be missing some key pieces to their team, the moneyline college football odds saw a big shift. The Boilermakers opened as -145 favorites before shifting to +175 odds.

It is worth noting though that in two of the games that the Volunteers were unable to cover, they were a 37 and 33-point favorite. Aside from those two, every game that they went in as the favorite this season, they were able to cover.

Purdue started off slow against the spread this season going 3-4 in their first seven games. They followed that up by going 4-1 in their final five games of the season.

However, all of Purdue’s missing players is expected to hurt them against the spread and the public is expecting that. Purdue has only seen 25% of the bets on the spread while Tennessee is taking a whopping 75%.
