TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION MONDAY, FEBRUARY 1ST
#868 DRAKE (-18′) over Illinois St at 7 PM EST
Off yesterday’s 78-76 overtime home win over Illinois State, Drake will have no problems pounding the Redbirds in this right-back rematch. ISU holds a disturbing 18-39 SU and 19-35-1 ATS mark in its last 57 games and they’ll be physically and emotionally spent off yesterday’s near miss.
Holding an impressive 72-34 SU and 60-35-1 ATS record, there is certainly nothing wrong with the Bulldogs game right now. In this run favored, Drake improves to a rewarding 43-9 SU and 35-16-1 ATS including an awesome 39-8 SU and 33-13-1 ATS provided the Bulldogs are not off two or more straight up losses. Also, when favored and running the court against an opponent that scoots in off a straight up road loss, Drake holds a profitable 62-18 SU and 35-21 ATS mark including a strong 46-13 SU and 29-14 ATS provided the Bulldogs are not off two or more straight up losses.
This is not the money-making spot for Illinois State either. When coming off an ATS victory, the Redbirds hold a sorry 13-30-1 ATS record in their next game. In this run grabbing +4.5 or more, ISU slips to a woeful 1-14 SU and 3-12 ATS. Even worse, in true road games, Illinois State holds a feeble 7-38 SU and 16-28 ATS record in its last 45 battles including a horrible 1-14 SU and 3-12 ATS if its opponent takes the court off a pointspread loss.
On top of the Valley standings and off yesterday’s close call against the Redbirds, the Bulldogs will get back to what they do best – win and cover a basketball game. Take Drake. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
