Indiana State vs Drake Betting Prediction

These two teams finished first and second in the MVC regular season standings and will meet for a chance to win the automatic bid to the Tournament. Indiana State went 17-3 in the regular season and they are scoring over 84 points per game with over 50% field goal shooting. Drake had a 16-4 conference record during the season and they are scoring over 80 points per game, but they barely got by Bradley on Saturday. Drake won the first meeting between these teams by a score of 89-78, while Indiana State won the second meeting by a score of 75-67. These are two very good teams and I think both deserve to play in the Tournament, but I am going to roll with Indiana State and their high powered offense.
