What to Know
The Drake Bulldogs and the Indiana State Sycamores are set to square off in a Missouri Valley matchup at 8 p.m. ET Feb. 21 at Knapp Center. Coming off of a win even when the odds were against them, the Bulldogs have to be feeling especially confident now that the spread is in their favor.
Drake bagged an 83-76 victory over the Loyola Chicago Ramblers this past Saturday. Guard Tucker DeVries and guard Garrett Sturtz were among the main playmakers for Drake as the former had 24 points and the latter had 15 points in addition to seven rebounds and five steals.
Meanwhile, Indiana State was close but no cigar this past Saturday as they fell 76-72 to the Southern Illinois Salukis. Four players on Indiana State scored in the double digits: forward Kailex Stephens (21), guard Cooper Neese (19), guard Xavier Bledson (10), and guard Cameron Henry (10).
This next contest looks promising for Drake, who are favored by a full 10.5 points. They hadn't treated bettors all too well in the past (they are 8-17), but they might be worth taking a chance on now after beating the spread two games in a row.
Drake's win lifted them to 19-9 while Indiana State's defeat dropped them down to 11-16. If the Bulldogs want to win on Monday, they will need to focus on stopping the Sycamores' Kailex Stephens, who had 21 points along with six boards, and Cooper Neese, who had 19 points along with five rebounds. We'll see whether or not they are up to the challenge.
