Indiana State Sycamores (12-17; 10-15-2 ATS; 18-8 O/U)vs. Bradley Braves (19-11; 15-11-2 ATS;10-18 O/U)

The Bradley Braves will host the Indiana State Sycamores in the MVC regular season finale late Saturday afternoon from the Carver Arena. The Sycamores are coming off a 58-53 home win against Evansville, and the Braves recorded an 82-78 road win against Missouri State on Wednesday night. Bradley tallied an 81-73 road win against Indiana State late last month.

Sycamores Snap Skid

The Indiana State Sycamores finally got back in the win column with a 58-53 home win against Evansville on Wednesday night to bring their MVC record to 7-10. The Sycamores shot a poor 28% from the field, however they limited Evansville to 28% shooting. Sycamores’ leading scorer Jordan Barnes played well, netting 19 points along with nine rebounds. The sophomore guard has drilled a combined 18 three-pointers in his last four games, and is currently averaging 17.3 points on 41% shooting. Brenton Scott had a rough night in the Sycamores’ latest win, going 1 for 7 from the field for a total of four points. The senior guard is on a solid 16 for 32 stretch from three-point range in his last five games, and he is now posting an average of 15 points and 5.7 rebounds per game.

The Sycamores snapped a rough four game losing streak in Wednesday’s victory, however the damage has been done as they are in seventh place in the MVC standings. They are currently positioned 144th overall in Ken Pomeroy’s college basketball rankings. Indiana State is scoring an average of 72.8 points per game, placing them 214th overall. Their defensive play has been an issue at times, and they are conceding an average of 72.8 points, positioning them 186th overall.

Bradley Moves Above .500 in MVC Play with Road Win

The Bradley Braves improved to 9-8 in MVC play with a big 82-78 road win against a strong Missouri State team on Wednesday night. The Braves posted a 46% clip from the field, while Missouri State was able to shoot 45%. Nate Kennell had one of his better games of the season in the defeat, collecting 20 points on a 6 for 10 effort from three-point range. The sophomore guard was on a quiet stretch prior to his 20-point effort, and he places third in team scoring with 9.4 points on 38.5% shooting. Braves’ top scorer Darrell Brown wasn’t sharp in Wednesday’s loss, sinking only 2 of 8 shots, however he did go 11 for 12 from the line for a total of 16 points. The sophomore guard is not having an efficient season from an offensive standpoint, posting a poor 34.5% field goal percentage to go with an average of 13.5 points per game.

The Braves have won two out of their last three games to move into fifth place in the conference standings, and they have a chance to move to fourth with a win in this one. They are placed at 122nd in the country in Ken Pomeroy’s college basketball rankings. Bradley is scoring an average of only 68.1 points per game, ranking them 301st overall. They rely on  their outstanding defense to win games, and are holding opponents to 64.4 points, good for 21st in the country.

Trends:

The Indiana State Sycamores are:

  • 4-13 ATS in their last 17 games at Bradley.
  • 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall.
  • 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games against a team with a winning record.

The Bradley Braves are:

  • 23-4-2 ATS in their last 29 home games.
  • 21-5-1 ATS in their last 27 home games against a team with a losing road record.

I am going with Bradley in this one. Indiana State is struggling, losing four out of their last five games, and they are only averaging 67.8 points in that five game span. They will face a tough task against a stifling Bradley defense that is holding opponents to 40.5% shooting on the season. Furthermore, Indiana State is also a weak defensive team and Bradley was able to sink 51% of their field goals in their 81-73 road win against Indiana State in the first meeting this season.
