Tuesday Open Thread: OSU-Purdue and Kentucky-Florida

Good evening sports fans. Tonight we have a couple beautiful matchups as Ohio State and Purdue tangle in a Big 10 battle, and then the SEC’s marquee rivalry takes place with Kentucky visiting Gainesville.

Purdue is rated 7th in the Pomeroy ratings, and have an 82% chance of beating Ohio State tonight. Ohio State is rated just 25th in the Pomeroy ratings, but remember they garnered said rating without the services of Evan Turner for a few weeks. If he is close to full strength, I actually like the Buckeyes to go on the road and take down Purdue.

In the nightcap, Kentucky travels to their first road test. Given that they struggled in their first SEC road game at Georgia, this should be no picnic for them. Freshman DaMarcus Cousins is really coming into his own, as he is probably the best rebounder in the entire country. He still is taking tons of shots though, ending more possessions than any other player in the country.

Although Florida is a pretty good team in their own right, especially defensively, they will likely need a ton of threes to beat the Wildcats. Given that they shoot just over 30% on the season, I’m taking Kentucky.

    RT @tallguyDuke: Not to slight Purdue, but does anyone really see them as a threat for the title? Solid team, but elite 8 ceiling in my mind

  8. Top 25 is done. Will be up shortly.
