March Madness will be streamed in its entirety on at NCAA.com, with subscriptions not necessary. You can watch Purdue-Yale at March Madness Live. There will be a 30-40 second lag on the game, so keep that in mind for your in-game betting on the contest.
The Boilermakers were dominant offensively in the Big Ten, but failed to register titles in the regular season or conference tournament. Purdue has the same core from last year’s team, along with a potential top-5 pick in Jaden Ivey. This group is built for a run this year and it starts against Yale.
The Bulldogs got into the dance after winning the Ivy League conference tournament. Azar Swaim has been playing excellent lately and it will take a truly special effort from him to help Yale pull off the upset. The last time the Bulldogs made the bracket, they took out Baylor in the first round.
Purdue is a 16-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook. The point total sits at 144.
