IUPUI Jaguars vs Cleveland State Vikings prediction

It’s a tough sell for the IUPUI Jaguars, as they’ve been a mess all season at both ends of the floor. IUPUI is also 9-19 ATS on the year, which doesn’t make the betting market any better. The Cleveland State Vikings also just beat IUPUI by 9 points a couple of days ago. The line is what it is for a reason, folks. And with all that said, I’m grabbing the points with IUPUI. One, recently playing each other should help IUPUI because there’s not going to be surprises. There’s familiarity here. Also, there’s seven seniors on this IUPUI roster. I doubt the Jaguars are just going to roll over with so many guys likely playing their last organized basketball game. Boatload of points for a tournament game. Give me IUPUI and the points.
