Favorites to Win the 2022 Big Ten Tournament

Purdue Boilermakers

The Purdue Boilermakers finished the regular season third in the Big Ten with a 14-6 conference record. The Boilermakers were ranked eighth nationally and one of the best teams during most of the season. Their +200 chances of winning the Big Ten Tournament are high.

Purdue is the 7th-highest scoring offense and 2nd in the Big Ten. They score an impressive 80.7 points per game. Their four-player team (Jaden Edey Zach Edey Trevion Williams and Sasha Stefanovic), scores over ten points per game. Those four players combine for 54.9 points per game.

Purdue boasts one of the most talented players in the nation in Jaden Ivey. Ivey, a versatile guard, is efficient in shooting and rebounding well. He creates a lot of offensive firepower for the Boilermakers and scores 17.2 points per game. His center Zach Edey provides a lot to

Ivey. Edey, a sophomore at 7’4″ is very offensive. He plays under 20 minutes a game but still scores 14.7 points and grabs 7.3 rebounds. Both Edey, and Ivey need to play their best to win the tournament and be eligible for March Madness.

Purdue’s offense is strong, but they need to improve their defense. They give up 68.8 points per game, good enough for 167th in the country. They are expected to score high in this tournament. But defense is the true test. This tournament will be won by the Boilermakers if they can shut down their rivals. Purdue should be the champion of the Big Ten.

Illinois Fighting Illini

The Illinois Fighting Illini won part of the Big Ten regular-season title with their 15-5 conference record. They are ranked 20th and have +380 odds to win the Big Ten Tournament.

Illinois could have Kofi Crockburn as the top player in Big Ten. The Jamaican junior is second in the Big Ten in scoring with his 21 points per game and leads the Big Ten in rebounds at 10.6 per game. He is 7’0″ but has impressive stamina and plays over 30 minutes per game. Cockburn is the core of the team and the Fighting Illini may also be able to play well if he performs well.

Illinois doesn’t have a player that is as influential as Cockburn. However, they do have three players who score over ten points per game. The Illini have an impressive offense that scores over 76 points per game. Their defense must improve. They give up 67.7 points per game. This is too much for these tough opponents.

Iowa Hawkeyes

The Iowa Hawkeyes went 12-8 in conference play this year and finished fourth in the Big Ten. They played well enough to be ranked 24th and have +390 odds to win the Big Ten Tournament.

The Hawkeyes have the country’s fifth-best offense, scoring 83.3 points per game, but much of their offense comes from Keegan Murray. Murray, a finalist for the

Wooden Award, is one of America’s best players. He scores 23.3 points per game on 55.4% shooting, grabs 8.6 rebounds, and blocks 2.1 shots per game. Murray is a dangerous player because he has a tremendous impact on both ends of the court.

Iowa is home to many talented players but none compares with Keegan Murray. Murray might need to include them more in order to win the tournament and qualify for March Madness.
