Free Early Friday Pick

#873 CS-Fullerton +20.5 over Purdue 11:40 AM CT

Cal-State Fullerton should use Buffalo’s model in trying to pull off mammoth upset early on Friday. The Titans play fast and had respectable non-conference showings against Saint Mary’s as well as SEC and Pac-12 schools before finishing the Big West season strong with three wins in three days. With a smaller lineup the Titans could push the pace against a much bigger Boilermakers squad looking to provide some wear on the heavy favorite.

Fullerton scores very efficiently inside and shoots well at the line while rating as the second best defense in a typically underrated Big West. The long layoff may be hurting the Big Ten with Ohio State and Michigan struggling in wins on Thursday while Nebraska was bounced from the NIT and it took take a Boilermakers team that is reliant on 3-point shooting some time to find its rhythm last playing on March 4.

Purdue closed the season with losses in four of the final nine games and the Boilermakers have just one win by more than eight points in the last 13 games. Purdue’s big non-conference wins over Marquette, Arizona, and Louisville turned out to be much less meaningful than they looked at the time and while an upset isn’t likely getting past this hefty spread could be a challenge in early action in Detroit.
