College Basketball Prediction

The favorite is 20-5-2 against the spread in the last 27 meetings between these two teams and with the Drake potentially playing on tired legs, I like the favorite in this matchup today. The Bulldogs are just 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games overall and they’re 1-6 at the window in their last seven games following a win. On the other side, the Panthers are 11-4-1 against the spread in their last 16 games overall and have cashed in eight of the last 10 opportunities that they’ve had when they’re favored.

Missouri Valley Conference Tournament Prediction: Northern Iowa Panthers -9.5
