Lindenwood comes into this matchup looking for their first win against a Division 1 team, but they will be an underdog once again here. The Lions have not fared well in their three losses this year, but this will be the easiest Division 1 team they have played. Omaha picked up their first win against a D-1 team on Thursday and they were able to score 89 points in the game. Lindenwood is not a very good shooting team, as they are under 40% from the field and they are only scoring 60.7 points per game this season. Take Omaha here.
