dave darbySenior Analyst IJanuary 31, 2009

Southern Illinois (10-11, 5-5) at Evansville (13-7, 5-5)

Line: Evansville -2.5

Southern Illinois digs out of the snow for a road match up against Evansville on Saturday. The two teams have matching 5-5 records in the Missouri Valley conference and can start looking towards next year already. Southern Illinois defeated lowly Missouri State 68-57 Thursday while Evansville gained a road victory against Drake 65-62.

ATS-

Southern Illinois is 11-9 ATS including 5-5 on the road

Southern Illinois is 7-3 ATS against Evansville in their last 10 match ups

Evansville is 9-8 ATS including 5-5 at home

Evansville shoots just a little better, rebounds just a little better and has just a little better scoring differential than Southern Illinois. Combine that with the home court and I’ll take the Aces.

Dave’s Pick: Evansville -2.5
