What to Know
A Missouri Valley battle is on tap between the Missouri State Bears and the Indiana State Sycamores at 8 p.m. ET on Tuesday at JQH Arena. Both teams come into the matchup bolstered by wins in their previous games.
MSU had enough points to win and then some against the Valparaiso Beacons this past Saturday, taking their game 84-66. The Bears got double-digit scores from four players: guard Isiaih Mosley (22), forward Gaige Prim (15), guard Ja’Monta Black (15), and guard Jaylen Minnett (15).
Meanwhile, Indiana State came out on top in a nail-biter against the Illinois State Redbirds this past Saturday, sneaking past 60-57. Having forecasted a close victory for Indiana State, the oddsmakers were right on the money. Guard Cooper Neese had 28 points in addition to six boards, and this makes it back-to-back games in which he has scored at least 44% of Indiana State’s points.
This next contest looks promising for MSU, who are favored by a full 12 points. They are currently two-for-two against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.
The Bears were close but no cigar in the teams’ previous meeting in January as they fell 76-72 to the Sycamores. Maybe MSU will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the matchup and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
