Dave's College Basketball Picks, Jan. 28: Evansville at Drake

dave darbySenior Analyst IJanuary 27, 2009


Evansville (12-7, 4-5) at Drake (14-7, 5-4)

Line: Drake -7.5


Evansville (8-8 ATS including 3-3 on the road) has lost 4 out of their last 5 games, but have played tough on the road. Shy Ely leads the conference with 17.3 points scored per game but needs someone else to step up. Evansville controlled the game against Wichita State, but lost on a three pointer with 8 seconds to go. Drake (9-7 ATS including 4-4 at home) beat Creighton 74-62 in a game which the Bulldogs held the Blue Jays to just 30% shooting from the field. Drake lost 65-76 at Evansville on December 28th. These teams are just too evenly matched to justify the points.


Dave’s Pick: Evansville +7.5
