Indiana State vs. Evansville Prediction

I’m on Indiana State here. The Sycamores are just flat out the better team in this matchup and while Evansville had a nice non-conference portion of the schedule, they’re showing flashes of the old Evansville team that they’ve been the last few years, and that’s not a good thing. Look for the Sycamores to thrash the Aces in this one for a big win and cover on the road.
