Randy’s Free Pick
The Indiana State Sycamores are an above average team, but they've taken a slight step back in their last few games, and that's not what you want to see when going up against the Bulldogs. Drake is playing its best ball of the season and that should continue at home, where it wins by an average of 19.9 points. The line is reasonable. Give me Drake.
