Bradley -2 over Drake (win)
Bradley and Drake split the regular season series. Today’s game on a neutral court will come down to who has the experience and talent and in my opinion that is in the favor of the Braves. Bradley has a couple more seniors on their roster hoping to get to the NCAA Tournament. I like Bradley a little bit better today on the offensive glass and I believe they have the better pure scorers with two senior guards that can take over the game if needed. Take Bradley.

Purdue Fort Wayne +8 over South Dakota State (win)
South Dakota State Coach Eric Henderson has done a great job as a rookie head coach, but things will start to get tougher come conference play. This Jackrabbits team won both matchups by 11 points this year. The saying it’s hard to beat a team three times in one year is not really true, but in this case I believe Fort Wayne will take it to the wire. This is where experience factors into play. The Mastodons might even have the more talented roster. South Dakota State was not a great team away from home. This game being at a neutral court should make it much closer of a game. The dog has value here today. Take Fort Wayne.
