According to oddsmakers from online sports book, the Panthers are 4.5-point favorites over the Redbirds after opening as a 5-point favorite in this championship game. The total, meanwhile, opened at 119 but has dropped a full point to 118.

The favorite has been a great bet in this series, covering in all four of the last four meetings between these two teams. The Redbirds are also just 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games versus the Panthers and are 5-11 against the number in their last 16 Missouri Valley games despite shocking Wichita State in the semi-finals on Saturday.

On the other side, Northern Iowa is a perfect 7-0 against the spread in its last seven neutral site games, which includes back-to-back covers in the MVC tournament the past two nights. The Panthers are also 12-3-3 at the betting window in their last 18 games overall and  7-1-3 against the spread in their last 11 games coming off an ATS win.

We like the Panthers to cover the 4.5 points today and handle the upset-minded Redbirds at Scottrade Center. Check out more on Spread Winners and to purchase picks, click here.
