Let’s check the latest college basketball odds, stats, injury reports and college basketball lines for Duke vs Purdue. We’ve plenty of NCAA basketball odds for you to consider.

Duke Blue Devils

The Blue Devils have played a couple of tight contests so far but that’s to be expected when the caliber of opponent is what it is in this tournament. They eked out a three-point win over Oregon State and then edged Xavier by seven.

If you’re making your college basketball picks here, you’re probably happy with Duke’s performance against Xavier. They were a two-man show against Oregon State and that was enough. More depth showed up against Xavier.

Against the Musketeers, Ryan Young and Kyle Filipowksi were again big contributors. They combined for 20 points. However, Jeremy Roach and Mark Mitchell had 37. This duo had just eight points against the Beavers.

This team is now playing with confidence and is exhibiting the balance many thought they had. That will make them quite the handful for Purdue on Sunday.

Purdue Boilermakers

Many people had expected Duke and Gonzaga to play in the championship game in this event but Purdue spoiled the show. Even though they were a small dog in the sportsbook against the Bulldogs on Friday night, they found a way to spring the upset.

Purdue actually started the season outside the Top 25 in terms of The Associated Press rankings but they’re now at No. 24. It feels like the arrow is pointing up for this team, who is 5-0 so far.

What was most impressive about the win against No. 6 Gonzaga was not just the end result but the final score. Not only did Purdue win, they whipped Gonzaga 84-66.

Four players finished in double-figures, including Zach Edey, who led the way with 23. The center is going to be a big nuisance for Duke’s frontcourt. He’ll be the key to victory for this squad.
