Southern Illinois Salukis vs Drake Bulldogs. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Southern Illinois Salukis. Drake is playing some excellent basketball recently, including a stunning win over Loyola Chicago, but the Drake offense struggled at times during conference play, as we witnessed in their 60-59 win over Southern Illinois earlier this season.

 

Southern Illinois is currently 4-7 on the road this year, but the Salukis are playing well of late, winning four of their last five matches, so I’m going with the Salukis and the points. The Southern Illinois Salukis will win by a predicted score of 68-61.
