The Eastern Illinois Panthers are 2-3 but are coming off their best performance albeit a loss. Eastern Illinois comes in off of an 86-83, overtime  loss to the Marquette Golden Eagles as an 18 point underdog. The Panthers sank half their looks with the Golden Eagles countering at 46.6% with more threes and foul shots being the difference.

USA TODAY Sports

Jajaun Starks carried the Eastern Illinois offense with a monster 27 point, eight rebound performance on 9-13 from the floor with Ray Crossland adding 13 points and five pulls on 5-10 from the field. Montell Goodwin and Muusa Dama scored 12 points each while D’Angelo Jackson rounded out the top Panthers contributors. 

The Bradley Braves are not accustomed to enjoying a ton of success on the hardwood so their 6-1 start is better then good. Bradley has won four straight after downing Georgia Southern 62-58 as a two point favorite. The Braves only sank shots at a 33.9% pace but that was a workable number with Georgia Southern held to 28.8% although their 19-35 effort at the line was simply awful.

Darrell Brown was the to scorer for Bradley with a contest high 19 points on  5-16 from the field and 7-12 at the stripe. Donte Thomas gave the Braves ten points and seven boards while Dwayne Lautier-Ogunleye and Nate Kennell combined for 17 points followed by Koch Bar with six points and 14 rebounds.Eastern Illinois are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS win and over is 5-2 in Eastern Illinois last 7 games following a ATS win. Under is 8-0 in Bradley last 8 overall and Bradley are 13-3-1 ATS in their last 17 games overall and Bradley are 19-6-1 ATS in their last 26 home games.

I think these teams play close to the vest and the winner is decided late. I prefer both as dogs and only one team can get points…
