According to oddsmakers from oddsmakers at RealBets, this game is considered even, as neither team is being given a point spread. The over/under total for the contest has yet to be established.
Drake is 5-8 on the season, 0-1 in the MVC, 3-2 at home and 5-5 against the spread. Illinois State is 7-7 overall, 1-0 in the conference, 1-3 on the road and 5-7 against the spread. Illinois State has won five straight in this series and is 4-1 against the spread in those five games.
Illinois State has played a much tougher schedule than Drake, who is a bad basketball team. DeVaughn Akoon-Purcell leads the Redbirds in scoring with 15.4 points per game. The Redbirds have faced some tough teams on the road, including Kentucky and San Diego State and that should enable them to beat a subpar MVC squad.
