Score: 42 - 54
Point Spread: -2½/-101 Northern Iowa
My money is on Northern Iowa to walk all over Illinois State this afternoon. These two teams split their season series with each team winning at home. However, Illinois State won by just 4-points at home, thanks in large part to UNI shooting just 37.3% from the field. UNI bounced back and crushed Illinois State by 15 in the most recent matchup, and I expect them to win this game by 7-8 points.
Some teams don't play well in games played on neutral sites. That isn't the case for Northern Iowa. The Panthers are 10-2 ATS in their last 12 neutral site games and a perfect 6-0 ATS in their last 6 neutral site games as a favorite. BET NORTHERN IOWA!
