Pick
Over 61 (-110) @ sportsinteraction

I'm playing on Purdue/Minnesota OVER the total. These teams have both faced some stingy opponents thus far, particularly last time out. Purdue comes off a game against Northwestern while Minnesota had to contend with Iowa. Both those teams are allowing less than 15 ppg, their defenses currently ranking among the nation's leaders. Neither of these teams are quite as stingy though, so both offenses will have a chance to "get healthy." Purdue did put up a respectable 31 points (at Illinois) in its lone road game. The Gophers, meanwhile, scored 85 points in their two games before Iowa, 44 against Maryland and 41 against Illinois. On the other side of the ball, it should be mentioned that the Gophers lost a ton on defense from last year and that's led to them allowing 35.8 ppg, worst in the Big Ten. Minnesota racked up nearly 500 yards of offense in winning last year's game by a 38-31 score. That one finished well above the total and I look for tonight's game to also prove higher-scoring than most will be expecting. 

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
