The Saint Louis Billikens welcome the Indiana State Sycamores to town Saturday night.
The Indiana State Sycamores are in desperate need of momentum with just a 4-6 record. The Sycamores had dropped four in a row before downing sub division Illinois Springfield 75-60 on Wednesday night. The Prairiestars were held to just 33% from the field with ISU connecting at 45% to give them more field goals and threes while sinking five more free throws in a game that was little more then a scrimmage. The duo of Matt Van Scyoc and Devonte Brown netted 20 points apiece with Brown grabbing ten boards while Brenton Scott and Khristian Smith scored eight points each with Smith snaring seven pulls.

The Saint Louis Billikens have faded since a solid start with defeats in four of five following an 82-76 loss to UT Martin on Thursday night as a ten point favorite. The Billikins fell behind by 13 points heading to the locker room and a second half comeback simply ran out of gas. The Skyhawks fired away at 48%with SLU connecting at 38% with eight more looks but that added up to a few more field goals in an otherwise close contest. Miles Reynolds led the offense with 19 points and five helpers on 4-7 with Mike Crawford tossing in 12. Davell Roby scored eleven while Milik Yarbrough added ten points and 13 rebounds.
The under is 6-2 in Indiana State’s last 8 overall and is 6-2 in their last 8 non-conference games while the Sycamores are 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The under is 7-1 in Saint Louis last 8 overall and the Billikens are 5-23 ATS in their last 28 Saturday games while going 7-19-1 ATS in their last 27 home games. Neither team is winning so for me this is not the time to risk money on a guess…
