Score: 65 - 66
Point Spread: -11½/-110 Indiana State
Today's winner is Indiana State over Southern Illinois. This is my Missouri Valley GoM.
Indiana State won and covered the L2 in this series prior to January's 76-71 loss. The Sycamores have won 5 of their L7 SU, while covering 5 of their L6 overall. The Saluki's have dropped 6 of their L7 SU and are 1-5 ATS their L6. SIU got off a 6-game skid by taking down Wichita State as a 10-point 'dog. They are spent after that over-achieving victory and will come down to earth as they face an Indiana State squad that is 15-8 SU, 9-1 at home, 8-4 in Conference play, and is chock-full of playmakers. The favorite is 5-0 ATS the L5 in this series. The Home team is 5-0 ATS the L5 meetings. The Saluki's are 0-4 ATS the L4 games played at the Sycamores while the Sycamores are 6-1 ATS their L7 games played at home. Take Indiana State. Thank you.
