Who’s Playing

Illinois State @ Valparaiso

Current Records: Illinois State 8-6; Valparaiso 6-6

What to Know

The Valparaiso Brown and Gold are 7-1 against the Illinois State Redbirds since January of 2018, and they’ll have a chance to extend that success Sunday. Valpo has the luxury of staying home another game and will welcome Illinois State at 2 p.m. ET Jan. 2 at Athletics-Recreation Center. The Brown and Gold won both of their matches against the Redbirds last season (69-60 and 70-66) and are aiming for the same result this time around.

Everything went Valpo’s way against the William & Mary Tribe two weeks ago as they made off with an 88-66 win.

Meanwhile, it was close but no cigar for Illinois State as they fell 89-85 to the Wisconsin Badgers this past Wednesday. Forward Sy Chatman put forth a good effort for the losing side as he had 22 points in addition to seven boards.

Valpo is the favorite in this one, with an expected 5.5-point margin of victory. They are currently two-for-two against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

Valparaiso’s victory lifted them to 6-6 while Illinois State’s defeat dropped them down to 8-6. We’ll see if the Brown and Gold can repeat their recent success or if the Redbirds bounce back and reverse their fortune.
