The Evansville Purple Aces will go against the Drake Bulldogs in a Missouri Valley Conference clash in Knapp Center, Drake, on Wednesday, February 16, 2022, at 8:00 PM ET.

 

The Drake Bulldogs are on a three-game winless skid after falling to Bradley 68-59 on Saturday. They looked like one of the MVC’s toughest teams for most of the season. During their current losing streak, they also lost 66-62 against Missouri State and 74-69 to Northern Iowa in overtime. With an 8-5 record, the Bulldogs are presently in fifth place in the league.

 

According to KenPom, Drake is ranked 96th overall. With 67.2 points per game allowed, the Drake defense ranks 114th in adjusted efficiency and 130th in scoring defense.

 

The offense ranks 90th in adjusted efficiency and scores 74.3 points per game, ranking it 101st overall. 6’7 freshman Tucker Devries tops the squad with 13.6 points per game, followed by 6’3 senior Garret Sturtz with 11 points per game and a team-high 7.8 rebounds.

 

Roman Penn, a 6-foot senior, averages 10.6 points per game. Penn missed seven matches this season, but he is now back in the lineup.

Evansville Purple Aces vs Drake Bulldogs Predictions 2/16/2022

 

Evansville is currently 6-18 on the season. In their most recent game, the Aces were defeated by Southern Illinois. Evansville is yet to win consecutive games this season, and the Aces struggled thus far. Evansville lost five of their previous six games, falling to Northern Iowa, Missouri State, Bradley, Indiana State, and Southern Illinois.

 

When the Aces faced Southern Illinois on Saturday, they were behind 26-36 at halftime. Evansville improved after that, but they still fell 69-62. With 19 points, two rebounds, and two steals, Blaise Beauchamp led the squad in scoring.

 

  • The University of Drake Bulldogs is 14-6 SU in their last 20 matches.
  • Drake is 14-3 SU in their last 17 matches at home.
  • The Bulldogs are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 matches in the Missouri Valley Conference.

Evansville Purple Aces vs Drake Bulldogs. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Drake Bulldogs. I’m going to remain with Drake for the time being. Drake should be motivated going into this match. Drake, on the other hand, is more than capable of putting up strong point totals against comparable teams.

 

The Bulldogs are on a three-game winless run and only beat Evansville by one point in their first meeting. The Bulldogs remain the more skilled team and have more to play for in terms of conference tournament positioning.

 

Drake will be too much for Evansville in this game, as the Purple Aces’ offensive and defensive field goal percentages are both in the bottom 12 nationally. The previous time these two teams faced, Drake came out on top 60-59 on the road.

 

I believe the Bulldogs will be OK on a cover if they can rebound from their recent mediocre offensive output. The rematch should be entertaining. The Drake Bulldogs will win to a predicted score of 73-57.
