While Missouri State is just 3-5 SU in Missouri Valley Conference play, it is an incredible 7-1 ATS. One of its three wins came at Drake by a final of 77-65 on January 5th despite coming into that game as a 10-point underdog.

Missouri State is 26-6 SU in its last 32 meetings with Drake, including a ridiculous 14-1 SU in its last 15 home meetings dating back to 1997. The Bulldogs are 1-12 ATS in road games after having won 2 of their last 3 games over the last 2 seasons. Drake is 1-8 ATS in road games versus good defensive teams - allowing
