5* Summit League Game of the Year on IUPU-Indianapolis +8
This is a tough spot for Oral Roberts playing its second road games in 3 days, especially since it is coming off a 1-point double OT win over W. Illinois. I expect the Golden Eagles to be a little hungover from that game. They have typically shown the effects of hotly contest wins, going just 3-12 ATS in their last 15 games following a win by 6 points or less.
IUPUI will be lacking no motivation here following 3 straight defeats. Plus, the Jags have made a habit of rising to the occasion against top foes. Consider that IUPUI is 9-1 ATS when playing against a good team (Win Pct. 60% to 80%) over the last 2 seasons. It's defeating these teams by an average score of 76.3 to 72.7.
IUPUI has either won or lost by 6 points or less in 5 of the last 6 meetings in this series. We'll take the points.
