Drake Preview

The Drake Bulldogs are 19-5 (10-3) this year after they defeated SIU in overtime by a score of 92-88 in their last game. Drake led by one point at halftime, but they allowed SIU to score 45 points in the second half to force overtime, before scoring 10 points in the extra frame for the win. The Bulldogs shot 56.9% from the field and went 2-10 on three pointers in the game. Drake lost to Indiana State by a score of 75-67 in the game prior to SIU, but did win the previous two games. The Bulldogs are scoring 79.7 points per game with 35 rebounds per game and 15.6 assists per game, while allowing 68.6 points against per game this year. Tucker DeVries is averaging 20.8 points per game, 6.4 rebounds per game, and 3.5 assists per game. Drake is shooting 48.1% from the field, 74.4% on free throws, and 34.7% on three pointers this season. 

Bradley Preview

The Bradley Braves are 17-7 (9-4) this season after they lost to Evansville by a score of 73-70 in their last game. Bradley trailed 32-27 at the half, but they did score 43 points in the second half in the narrow loss. The Braves shot 42.4% from the field and made 12 three pointers in the game. Bradley defeated Illinois State by a score of 73-60 and Northern Iowa by a score of 85-69 in the two games prior to Evansville. The Braves are scoring 75.8 points per game with 35 rebounds per game and 13.9 assists per game, while giving up 67.7 points against per game this season. Connor Hickman is averaging 14.7 points per game, 2.9 rebounds per game, and 3.2 assists per game. Bradley is shooting 48% from the field, 70.6% on free throws, and 37.5% on three pointers this year. 

Drake vs Bradley Betting Prediction

Bradley is coming off of a disappointing loss to Evansville in their last game, but they will be back at home for this matchup and they are favored to win. Drake is one game up on Bradley in the MVC standings, but they are 0-2 in their last two road games. These two teams are very similar on paper and I think either side could get the win, so I am going to take the points with Drake on the road.
