Score: 71 - 86
Point Spread: -3/-110 Illinois State
*3 Star NCAA BB ATS Play of Day* Southern Illinois has struggled all year. The Salukis generally win because of their great defense, but this year's unit is very mediocre defensively. On the offensive end, there really isn't much firepower at all. Illinois State plays solid defense and they have multiple options on the offensive end. Illinois State has a history of success playing in Carbondale. In fact, Illinois State is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games at Southern Illinois. I think the Redbirds are the much better team. Look for Illinois State to win comfortably.
