The Eastern Illinois Panthers host the Bradley Braves in college basketball on Tuesday.
The Bradley Braves have been a little difficult to figure out in the early going but I guess a 3-3 record says that. The Braves come off a 77-66 defeat to George Mason which was just a one point game heading to the locker room. The Patriots held a slight 41%-38% edge in shooting but the boxscore was even otherwise except at the line where the Braves were 12 free throws short which decided the game. Darrell Brown paced the Bradley Braves attack with 15 points on 5-11 accuracy with 12 points coming from Antoine Pittman. Nate Kennell and Callum Barker combined for 17 points with Barker snagging six boards but the Braves needed more scoring punch.

The Eastern Illinois Panthers are off to a solid 4-2 start and I wonder if their success continues. The Panthers have won three in a row after knocking off South Alabama as a four point underdog on Saturday. Both squads sank shots at around 44% but the Panthers connected on five more free throws and five more from long range. Ray Crossland paced five EIU in double digit scoring with 15 points and seven pulls on 6-9 from the floor with Montell Goodwin tossing in 14 points and snaring six pulls. Muusa Dama gave the Panthers12 points and nine rebounds on 4-8 while Demetrius McReynolds and Cornell Johnston each scored ten points with Johnston posting nine boards.
The over is 7-1 in Bradley last 8 road games and Bradley are 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games overall while the under is 19-8 in Bradley last 27 non-conference games. The over is 14-6 in Eastern Illinois last 20 home games.
Right now Eastern Illinois is playing the better basketball so I’ll take them in a pick’em…
