The Bradley Braves and Drake Bulldogs face off on Sunday in a college basketball showdown at the Knapp Center. Let’s look at the betting matchup and give a free Bradley vs Drake prediction.

Can Bradley Win 4th Game in a Row?

Bradley is playing well heading into this game and they have won three games in a row. In the last game against Southern Illinois, Bradley scored 86 points and they ended up winning by 19 points. Darius Hannah had a strong game putting up 22 points and seven rebounds. Bradley is averaging 75.1 points while their defense is giving up 67.3 points per game. The defense is ranked 58th and they are going to need the defense to step up here. 

Is Drake in Trouble?

Drake is coming off a win in the last game brit should have never taken overtime to get the job done against UIC. It took triple overtime but Drake was able to finally win 107-105. Tucker DeVries had a strong game putting up 39 points, 13 rebounds, and seven assists. Drake is averaging 80.9 points while their defense is giving up 70.9 points per game. The offense is ranked 33rd in the league while the defense is ranked 146th. DeVries is averaging 21.7 points while shooting 44.8 percent from the field and 35.9 percent from behind the three point line. At times others around DeVries haven’t stepped up and that can’t be the case here. 

Bradley vs Drake Betting Prediction 

I am really concerned with the way Drake played in the last game against UIC and they aren’t going to have the best game here. Bradley scored 86 points in the last game and they are going to have no issue running up the score here. Drake’s defense is giving up 70.9 points per game and they are going to really struggle in this game to defend. Back Bradley to cover the spread here.
