Neither side has anyone listed on the injury report for this game, so barring any last-minute announcements, both sides will come into this game at full strength.
Bradley’s 62-52 win over SIU back on February 1st, 2023, made it three straight wins for the home team in this head-to-head matchup.
Bradley is 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 road games. Southern Illinois is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS win while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 home games.
I’m backing Bradley here. The Braves are just in the far better form right now and while Bradley has been better at home this season, the reality is that their defense travels and I just don’t feel like stepping in front of Bradley right now. The Salukis are solid and are 12-1 at home but I just think that the Braves get it done here.
