The over is 7-1 in Evansville’s last eight games against the Missouri Valley. Evansville is 7-1 against the spread in their last eight games played on Friday. The under is 22-7 in Indiana State’s last 29 games overall. 

Indiana State is the better team and I expect their offense is going to do a good job against an Evansville defense that has been suspect at times and that is going to be the difference. Back Indiana State to come away with a cover of the spread.
