I liked how the Redbirds played last night. It seems as if they might be putting it together at the right time. The Redbirds, in my opinion, have the most talent in the league. They don't always get the most out of it. I will take Illinois State +3 in this one. The dream situation for the MVC would be for Illinois State to win the tourney so they can get 3 in the dance.
I will play Indiana State +9 in the first one. Lets see if Creighton can play defense 2 games in a row. I am doubting it.
