The Missouri State Bears and the Drake Bulldogs meet in college basketball action from the Knapp Center on Saturday afternoon. A pair of 6-1 teams go at it on Saturday, who earns win #7? Let’s take a look and give out a Missouri State vs. Drake Prediction.

Missouri State Team Preview

The Missouri State Bears come into this game looking to build on their current six-game win streak after a 90-78 win over Evansville last time out. Alston Mason leads the Bears in scoring with 15.8 PPG along with 3.7 RPG and 3 APG while Chance Moore has 14.3 PPG with 4.7 RPG and Donovan Clay has 15 PPG with a team-high 7 RPG to lead the Bears in rebounding so far this season. Matthew Lee has 14.4 PPG with 4.4 RPG and a team-high 6 APG to lead the Bears in assists while also capping off the group of double-digit scorers for the Bears this season. As a team, Missouri State is averaging 76.9 PPG on 46.8% shooting from the field, 38.7% from three, and 71.7% from the foul line this season.

Drake Team Preview

The Drake Bulldogs will enter this game looking to add to their three-game win streak after an 83-65 win over Valparaiso last time out. Tucker DeVries leads Drake across the board with 19.6 PPG, 6.9 RPG, and 3.1 APG while Atin Wright has 14 PPG with 2 APG as well on the year. Kevin Overton has 14 PPG with 3.6 RPG and Darnell Brodie’s contributed 14.2 PPG with 6.7 RPG as well on the year. As a team, Drake is averaging 80.6 PPG on 49.8% shooting from the field, 34% from three, and 76.6% from the foul line this season. After this one, Drake will host Saint Louis, Nevada, Grambling, and Alcorn State.

Missouri State vs. Drake Prediction

I could make a case for either side in this game, but I’m going to lean towards the over here. I think teams will be able to score in bunches in this game, and both have been fairly consistent when it comes to filling it up. The Bears have been the stronger defense, but I just think this game is headed for a lot of points when all is said and done so give me the over here.
