The Missouri State Bears need a win here to get a game above a .500 record. The Missouri State Bears are averaging 67.1 points on 42.9 percent shooting and allowing 65.7 points on 41.7 percent shooting. Keandre Cook is averaging 15.6 points and 5.1 rebounds while Gaige Prim is averaging 12.5 points and 3.9 rebounds. Tulio Da Silva is dishing 1.1 assists and Lamont West is grabbing 3.9 rebounds. The Missouri State Bears are shooting 34.8 percent from beyond the arc and 75.3 percent from the free throw line. The Missouri State Bears are allowing 31.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.8 rebounds per game. The Missouri State Bears have lost five of their last seven road games.
The Drake Bulldogs look for a win after winning six of their last nine games. The Drake Bulldogs are averaging 70.8 points on 46.6 percent shooting and allowing 65.7 points on 41.3 percent shooting. Liam Robbins is averaging 13.7 points and 6.4 rebounds while Roman Penn is averaging 11.8 points and 6.1 assists. Anthony Murphy is dishing 1.9 assists and D.J. Wilkins is grabbing 3.2 rebounds. The Drake Bulldogs are shooting 34.3 percent from beyond the arc and 70.2 percent from the free throw line.

The Bears are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games, 16-34-1 ATS in their last 51 Sunday games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Bulldogs are 36-13-2 ATS in their last 51 home games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win and 33-16-2 ATS in their last 51 games overall. The under is 16-5 in Bears last 21 road games. The under is 4-1 in Bulldogs last 5 overall. The underdog is 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings. The home team is 18-8 ATS in the last 26 meetings.
The Missouri State Bears are 5-2 ATS this season on the road, but they've been an inconsistent team overall that's hard to trust when only getting one free bucket. The Drake Bulldogs have not only won six of their last nine and are undefeated at home, but they're 6-2 ATS at home where they win by an average of 13.2 points and shoot 50.8 percent from the field and 37.9 percent from beyond the arc. I have to lay the bucket with Drake at home.
