Indiana State vs Missouri State Betting Prediction

Indiana State comes into this game in first place in the MVC standings and they are one of the top mid major programs this season, but they will be on the road here. The Sycamores are scoring 86.1 points per game with 51.1% field goal shooting, but their defense has had some issues. Missouri State is 6-7 within the conference, but they have played very well over the last five games. The Bears are only shooting 43.7% from the field, which is much worse than Indiana State, and I just don’t see how Missouri State will be able to keep pace with Indiana State. Take the Sycamores in this game.
