11 Drake vs. 11 Wichita State
Watch: 6:27 p.m. ET, TBS
Odds: Drake -2 || O/U 140
Pick: This matchup is (obviously) close on paper. The tickets are coming in on the name-brand Shockers, but the money is flowing in on the 25-win Bulldogs. We’re following the cash this time and siding with a Drake team that ranks 19th in offensive efficiency.
Skip the spread and take the Drake moneyline (-135); lean over as neither defense cracks the top 100.

Subscriber David Nagelberg (@SportsGuruDave) had Milwaukee winning 118-104 and went with the no-brainer Greek Freak pick. Good stuff, David!
