SIU Edwardsville Cougars vs Morehead State Eagles prediction

The Morehead State Eagles are the better team with the rest advantage, so a blowout victory wouldn't be shocking. The SIU Edwardsville Cougars also played yesterday and played their starters into the ground despite having a huge lead for the majority of the game. I'm still leaning toward SIU Edwardsville and the points, assuming we can get a decent amount of points. SIU Edwardsville did beat Morehead State back in January and has some shooters who can get hot. SIU Edwardsville is the type of team that could thrive off last night's win and carry it over to produce a competitive effort here. Not saying Morehead State loses, but this could be close. Give me SIU Edwardsville and whatever the line is.
