Dave's College Basketball Picks, Jan. 28: Illinois State at Northern Iowa

dave darbySenior Analyst IJanuary 28, 2009

Illinois State (17-3, 6-3) at Northern Iowa (14-6, 8-1)

Line: Northern Iowa -3.5

Illinois State (9-7 ATS including 3-4 on the road) has been great at home, and really bad on the road. The Redbirds are losers of their last three road contests. Northern Iowa (8-8 ATS including 3-4 at home) is coming off a 78-69 road victory at Missouri State in which we called the upset and were correctly puzzled by the line favoring the Bears. Adam Koch scored 30 points and the Panthers made 30 out of 36 free throws to pull away. Two evenly matched teams, but the home court will make the difference in this one.

Dave’s Pick: Northern Iowa -3.5
