The Redbirds are coming off that tough loss vs Louisville. Wyoming coming off big win vs Colorado. I'm pretty sure the Redbirds will play with a lot of intensity at home and look to make Wyoming pay for that close loss. I'm gonna take Illinois State -8 & whatever the 1H line is as well. I will also look to parlay a few things with the ML.
DIRTY RED BIRDS!!!
Got to be impressed with their offense 17th (82.3) especially vs the competition they've been facing. Wyoming also off huge win over then 19th ranked Colorado. Perfect storm for the Red Birds to dominate early and through out.
Not an MVC play, but I do follow this Mizzou team a little bit.
SEMO at Missouri
Michael Dixon was kicked off the team. He was their 6th man last year and was going to be counted on even more this season. The Tigers don't seem to have that killer instinct that it takes to blow out teams they should. They have been twice favored by 27 and won both by 14. These teams played last year and SEMO was only down 2 at the half before losing by 15. Those SEMO kids will be up for this matchup and I can't see the Tigers covering 17.5.
They have to be for real. Illinois state is the 2nd best team in the Valley and beating them on their home court is impressive. They also took down a pretty good Colorado team. They will be a team to watch.
