Betting line for Northwestern-Purdue showdown sees huge shift just 24 hours after opening
We’re getting closer to another week of Big Ten football and there’s already been a shift in a betting line for one of the games.
For the Northwestern-Purdue showdown, the line opened at Purdue -2 on Sunday and just 24 hours later, it’s shifted to Northwestern -3:

It’s not surprising that this line changed since Northwestern is ranked and Purdue is not. However, both teams are undefeated to start the season (Northwestern 3-0, Purdue 2-0) so this is going to be one of the better games of the weekend.
This line will undoubtedly change as the week goes on as it’s expected to be such a close game.
Northwestern has beaten Maryland, Nebraska, and Iowa to start the season while Purdue has beaten Illinois and Iowa.
The game will be played at Purdue and will kickoff at 7:30 p.m. ET. It will be televised on the Big Ten Network.
