Dave's College Basketball Picks, Feb.11: Southern Illinois at Northern Iowa

dave darbySenior Analyst IFebruary 11, 2009

Southern Illinois (11-13, 6-7) at Northern Iowa (17-7, 11-7)

Line: Northern Iowa -6.5

Southern Illinois gained a road victory 72-64 on Saturday, but beating Missouri State is nothing much to brag about. A much tougher task awaits in league leading Northern Iowa. At 6-7 in conference, the Salukis find themselves on the lower end of the main pack in the conference standings.

Northern Iowa dropped their second conference game on Sunday to Creighton 71-77. The Panthers shot just 18-62 (29 percent) from the field in a horrible performance. With a two-game lead in the Missouri Valley, Northern Iowa can afford the slip up.

ATS-

Southern Illinois is 12-11 against the spread including 6-6 on the road.

Northern Iowa is 10-10 against the spread including 4-5 at home.

Northern Iowa is 6-3-1 against the spread in their last 10 matchups with Southern Illinois.
