Evansville @ Valparaiso

Current Records: Evansville 6-20; Valparaiso 12-15

What to Know

A Missouri Valley battle is on tap between the Valparaiso Beacons and the Evansville Aces at 8 p.m. ET on Monday at Athletics-Recreation Center. Valpo will be strutting in after a victory while Evansville will be stumbling in from a defeat.

The Aces are out to make up for these teams' matchup this past Saturday. Valpo enjoyed a cozy 72-56 win over Evansville. Valpo got double-digit scores from four players: guard Kobe King (21), guard Kevion Taylor (16), forward Ben Krikke (12), and guard Sheldon Edwards (11). Kobe King's performance made up for a slower contest against the Loyola Chicago Ramblers last week.

The Beacons are the favorite in this one, with an expected 8.5-point margin of victory. They are currently two-for-two against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

Evansville's loss took them down to 6-20 while Valparaiso's win pulled them up to 12-15. We'll see if the Aces can steal Valpo's luck or if Valpo records another victory instead.
