The Southern Illinois Salukis and the Bradley Braves meet in college basketball action from the Carver Arena on Wednesday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Bradley is listed as a 5.5-point home favorite with a -290 ML price. The total for this game is set at 126.5 points.
Neither side has anyone listed on the injury report for this game, so barring any last-minute announcements, both sides will come into this game at full strength.
Southern Illinois’ 65-57 win over Bradley back on February 15th, 2022 was their 3rd win in the last 4 head-to-head meetings between these two teams.
Southern Illinois is 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 games following a loss and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall. Bradley is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a win and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall while the over is 7-0 in their last 7 games overall.
I’m sticking with Bradley here. Southern Illinois has had a lot of the recent success between these two teams, but Bradley has been lights out at home for the better part of the season and I don’t see that changing here. The Braves have taken their foot off of the gas in spots as of late, but I look for them to step up here against one of the better MVC teams in SIU. I’ll lay the points with Bradley here.
