The Redbirds are hot as they are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Drake Bulldogs are 16-5 ATS in their last 21 games following a ATS win and are 11-5 ATS in their last 16 Wednesday games. With their defense, Drake should win and cover in this one. The home team is 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings but this spread is too short for me to back the Redbirds in this one.
