Lindenwood vs. Southern Indiana Prediction

I’m on Southern Indiana here. It’s a big number to lay between two teams that have identical records this season, but Lindenwood’s shown me nothing as of late to suggest they’ll be able to hold up defensively here. Southern Indiana’s been able to score and keep themselves in games and they’ve played their best basketball at home this season. Give me the Screaming Eagles here.
