Drake vs. Minnesota Pick

College Basketball Predictions: Drake vs. Minnesota 12/11/17

Coming off a bad loss this past weekend, will No. 14 Minnesota get back on track tonight when it plays host to Drake at 8PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Minnesota is the clear favorite tonight, as the Golden Gophers are getting odds of -20 points against Drake. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 155.5 points. Tonight’s game takes place from Williams Arena in Minneapolis, Minnesota and will air live on the Big Ten Network.

Minnesota has lost two straight and three of its last four following a 95-79 loss at Arkansas on Saturday. The Gophers are now 8-3 on the season and 6-4 against the spread. They have failed to cover in three of their last four as well. Minnesota is putting up 86.5 points per game on offense while allowing 74 per contest on defense. Jordan Murphy is having a great season, as he is averaging 19.9 points and 12.5 rebounds per game this season. Nate Mason is adding 15.8 points and 4 rebounds per game.

Drake is coming off a 93-74 win over Nebraska-Omaha on Saturday to snap a three-game losing streak. The Bulldogs are 5-4 on the season while posting a 4-2-1 record against the spread. Drake is averaging 80.9 points per game on offense this season while allowing 81.6 per contest. Reed Timmer is leading Drake with 22.1 points and 4.1 rebounds per game while Nick McGlynn is adding 11 points and 6 rebounds per contest.

Bet on Drake vs. Minnesota

These two have no recent meetings to consider for tonight. Minnesota is 4-1 against the spread in its last 5 home games and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 home games against a team with a losing road record. Drake is just 1-7 against the spread in its last 8 road games and 1-5 ATS in its last six on the road against a winning home team. The public betting is slightly with Minnesota tonight. Despite the Gophers’ recent struggles, I think Minnesota takes care of Drake at home.
