Drake vs. Evansville Prediction

I’m on Drake here. I know Evansville’s been playing well lately and has been more competitive at home, but I just can’t get there with the Aces as I still feel like Drake’s arguably the best team in the MVC. The Aces have had more than their fair share of hiccups in conference play, and don’t have the scoring depth to match with Drake here. Give me the Bulldogs on the road.
