Indiana St. vs Southern Illinois Under 133
The MVC is one of the best smaller conferences in the country.
The main reason this conference is better than most small conferences is most teams in this league work very hard on the defensive end.
Indiana State wasn’t expected to do much this year, but the Sycamores have committed in a big way on the defensive end of late.
The Sycamores have covered the spread in eight straight games and they are holding opponents under 60 points per game during that time.
Southern Illinois slows the game down this year just like they have in the past few years. The Salukis don’t have much offensive firepower, so they have to win by controlling the ball.
Southern Illinois has a history of playing much better defense on their home floor. The under is 5-1 in their last 6 home games.
This should be a tight game all the way, and it should be won by the team with the strongest defense. Don’t expect either team to put up very many points here. Take the under.
