Bradley @ Illinois State

Current Records: Bradley 8-9; Illinois State 8-8

What to Know

The Bradley Braves lost both of their matches to the Illinois State Redbirds last season on scores of 56-71 and 71-88, so they’re hoping to turn the tables this season. The Braves and Illinois State will face off in a Missouri Valley battle at 8 p.m. ET on Sunday at Redbird Arena. Bradley should still be riding high after a victory, while Illinois State will be looking to get back in the win column.

Bradley took their contest at home last week with ease, bagging a 79-47 win over the Evansville Aces. Among those leading the charge for Bradley was forward Rienk Mast, who dropped a double-double on 23 points and 13 rebounds.

Meanwhile, the Redbirds received a tough blow last Wednesday as they fell 86-75 to the Drake Bulldogs. The losing side was boosted by forward Kendall Lewis, who had 20 points.

Barring any buzzer beaters, the Braves are expected to win a tight contest. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a two-game streak of ATS wins.

Bradley’s win brought them up to 8-9 while Illinois State’s defeat pulled them down to 8-8. A couple defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Bradley have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 39.60%, which places them 34th in college basketball. Less enviably, the Redbirds are sixth worst in college basketball in points allowed per game, with 78.4 on average.
