The Indiana State Sycamores and Valparaiso College face off on Friday in a college basketball showdown at the Athletics-Recreation Center. 

The Indiana State Sycamores currently sits with a 13-8 record overall but they have won nine of their last ten games. In the last game against Evansville, the offense was elite putting up 87 points and that led to the comfortable victory. Indiana State on the season is averaging 68.2 points per game while their defense is giving up 67.9 points per game. Tyreke Key has been the best player for Indiana State averaging 17.4 points while shooting 48.6 percent from the field and 32.3 percent from behind the three point line. 

On the other side of this matchup is Valparaiso College who sits with a 9-16 record overall and they have lost three of their last four games. In the last game against SIU Edwardsville they were competitive but the offense couldn’t get enough scoring 64 points and that led to a three point defeat. Valparaiso on the season is averaging 64.3 points per game while their defense is giving up 69.7 points per game. Valpo on the season is shooting 41.9 percent from the field and 30.1 percent from behind the three point line. Forward Ben Krikke has been the best player for Valparaiso so far this season averaging 12.2 points while shooting 53 percent from the field .

The under is 20- in Indiana State’s last 27 games overall. The under is 17-5 Valpo’s last 22 games overall. The home team is 7-2 against the spread in the last nine meetings played the two teams. 

I expect both teams are going to struggle to score in this game and that will lead to the under cashing with ease. This is one of the best plays on the board, and it wouldn't be shocking if both teams finished under 60 points.
