Drake Bulldogs vs. Southern Illinois Salukis

NCAAB: Tuesday, February 12, 2019 at 8:00 PM EST

Drake has won two of their last three games and they are in 2nd place in the Missouri Valley Conference. They are two games back of Loyola-Chicago in the standings and in the game before their last one they were crushed by them. Earlier this season at home the Bulldogs beat Southern Illinois 82-70. Drake has a balanced team that out up 83 points in their last game, but only scored 64 points in their previous game in a bad loss to Loyola-Chicago.

Southern Illinois has won three of their last four games and are 6-6 in MVC play and 13-12 overall. The team is led by a defense that ranks 78th in the nation in points allowed. While the Salukis only ranks 290th in the nation averaging 68.1 ppg they have averaged 79.3 ppg in the three wins in their last four games. Drake is 7-2-2 ATS in their last 11 road games facing Southern Illinois.

Few fouls help in W

In their last game Drake was at home beating Northern Iowa and while both teams had similar stats the Panthers only had four points on six shots from the free throw line while the Bulldogs were 17/18 from the charity stripe.

Drake shot 50% from the floor and Northern Iowa shot 50.8%. four of five starters for the Bulldogs scored at least 12 points led by Nick McGlynn going for 22 points on 8/12 shooting and D.J. Wilkins chimed into for 18 points on 6/11 shooting.

McGlynn leads four players for the Bulldogs that are averaging at least 11 ppg at 15.6 ppg and he had only totaled 28 points in two games before going for 22 in the win over Northern Iowa. 2nd leading scorer Nick Norton is out for the season with a knee injury. Wilkins (11 ppg) had only totaled 16 points in three games before scoring 18 points in the last game. Drake is 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 MVC games.

Turnovers and free throws help Salukis

Southern Illinois was at home in their last game beating Evansville 78-73 where free throws and turnovers helped their cause. Both teams shot 47.3% from the floor and a similar 3-pt FG%, but Southern Illinois forced 17 turnovers while committing 12 and they had seven more points from the charity stripe with a much better free throw percentage. Every starter for Southern Illinois had at least 12 points led by Kavion Pippen with 18 points on 7/13 shooting, Sean Lloyd Jr. had 14 points and eight rebounds, and Aaron Cook had 15 points and seven assists.

Leading scorer for the season Armon Fletcher had 13 points in the last game after going for only seven in his previous game and Pippen (12.1 ppg) is averaging 20.7 ppg in his last three games. This season Southern Illinois is 7-5 at home and Drake is 5-4 on the road.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Have to go with Drake in this one, as they beat Southern Illinois earlier this season at home by 12 points. On top of that the Salukis are only 2-6 in their last eight home games and have failed to cover in their last six games facing a team that has a winning road record, which the Bulldogs have. This game will be a close one, but Drake will not only cover, but get the win as well.

Prediction: PICK: Drake

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

In five of the last six games between these teams at Southern Illinois the total has gone Under five times. While the total went Over in the game earlier this season this game will not be a high scoring affair. Drake will play good D and jeep Southern Illinois from scoring many points and in a close game the Bulldogs will not light it up either. Take the Under in this Missouri Valley Conference matchup.

Prediction: PICK: Under

I dig every sport and the NFL is my favorite. My team is the Redskins and my 2nd favorite is whoever is playing the Cowboys! I am a great handicapper and if you don’t believe me just ask. I don’t just write about betting on games I actually bet on them and I have done well, which is why it is a good idea to follow my picks.
