Tuesday college basketball features a matchup between the Missouri State Bears and the Indiana State Sycamores.

The Missouri State Bears are trying to right the ship and save their season in the MVC. Missouri State has dropped five in a row following a 97-75 defeat at the Loyola-Chicago Ramblers as an eight point underdog. The Bears shot the ball well at 50.9% but could not get enough stops with the Ramblers hitting at 60.9%.

Mustafa Lawrence topped the Missouri State attack with 19 points on 7-14 from the floor including 5-9 from distance followed by JT Miller with 15 point on 6-11 shooting. The Bears received 14 points, nine rebounds and five assists from Alize Johnson on 4-9 while Jarrid Rhodes tossed in eleven points. 

The Indiana State Sycamores play more then their share of close games but came up with a not so close 77-66 victory at the Northern Iowa Panthers that ended a three game skid. Indiana State held a small 52%-50% shooting edge but won on a 10-22 effort from beyond the arc.

Brenton Scott poured in a contest high 20 points and hauled in ten rebounds on 7-12 from the floor with Jordan Barnes tossing in 13 points on 2-10 and 8-8 from the line. Tyreke Key gave the Sycamores nine points while Devin Thomas, Brandon Murphy and Clayton Hughes netted eight points apiece. 

Missouri State are 0-9 ATS in their last 9 games overall and Missouri State are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 Tuesday games and under is 10-3 in Missouri State last 13 overall. Over is 7-2 in Indiana State last 9 overall and over is 7-2 in Indiana State last 9 vs. Missouri Valley and Indiana State are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 Tuesday games. Underdog is 17-3-1 ATS in the last 21 meetings.

I think Missouri State is better then they have shown but Indiana State needs this badly at home…

Pick:
Indiana State -2

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
