Why should you bet on the Sycamores?

This is a tough argument to make. Indiana State lost by 28 to an Illinois State team that is not nearly as good as the Shockers. However, if the spread is high enough (20-25 points) and you think that the Shockers can be lulled to sleep in a home matinee, then you might think about it. Everett Clemons and Khristian Smith are the driving forces behind the Sycamores. However, Indiana State struggles on the inside; against Illinois State, they were outrebounded 46-35 and outscored in the paint 46-35.

Why should you put your money on Wichita State?

The Shockers are doing everything they can to make a strong case for a high seed in the NCAA tournament this year. Those seven losses will push them well down the bracket, but every big win they can stack up in conference play the rest of the way will help. They delivered a beatdown to Missouri State, and I expect them to do much the same against the Sycamores. Zach Brown, Fred Van Vleet and Ron Baker lead the way for the Shockers’ offensive attack, and they have the height inside to make Indiana State pay like Illinois State did in their last game.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

I like the Shockers to roll all over Indiana State, even though this is a road game. I’m picking Wichita State to win 95-60.
