Score: 51 - 66
Point Spread: -5/-110 Indiana State
Today's winner is Indiana State over Southern Illinois. This is my Missouri Valley Game Conference Game of the Year.
Indiana State has played solid basketball lately, going 6-4 SU and 8-2 ATS over their L10 contests. On the flip side, Southern Ill has dropped 6 in a row and 8 of their L9 SU, failing to cover 4 of their L5. By the way, that 5th game was a push. Just in their L10 outings, the Sycamores have won 5 games OUTRIGHT as a 'dog. Lathan, Odom, and Richard are all averaging DDs and 5 plus RPG. This is a crafty and talented unit that is highly-underappreciated. The Salukis are 1-4 ATS their L5 games played vs. the Sycamores, 0-4-1 ATS their L5 games played overall, and 0-3-1 ATS their L4 games played vs. the Missouri Valley Conference. The Sycamores are 11-5 ATS their L16 games played on neutral sites, 8-2 ATS their L10 games played overall, and 4-0 ATS their L4 games played against the Missouri Valley Conference. Take Indiana State. Thank you.
