Free pick from top sports service Joe Duffy’s GodsTips is:
WESTERN ILLINOIS -7 iupui
We have been fading IUPUI all year as they are ravaged by injuries. They have just seven scholarship players. They did finally beat us last week against their rival Fort Wayne. That snapped a four-game spread skid, but extended their losing streak to eight in a row.
What is especially tough on them is that they lost a heartbreaker in OT, so it is a difficult bounceback game. They have two okay options in Mitchell Patton and Donovan Gibbs, but this team is very thin in talent.
IUPUI has had no home court advantage, going 1-5 to the number, while Western is 7-4 and 7-3 against the spread on the road.
Already decimated by injuries and now off a heart-breaking loss, they are no match for the conference leader, especially considering there is almost no significant home road splits.
Top expert pick: It is the biggest play of the season, the biggest card of the year from the top handicapper in history in the midst of a typical rock-solid basketball season. So if you love winning, get Michigan-Indiana as the College Basketball Game of the Year. It is among a season high 11 winners from Joe Duffy.
