3-Unit Play. Take #545 Northern Iowa (-1)
over Indiana State
(7 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 13)
This line is way off. Northern Iowa is the second-best team in the Missouri Valley behind Wichita State. And this UNI team already has wins over North Carolina and Iowa State this year. They have lost two of their last three games. But those losses were by one point and two points. This team could easily be 4-0 in league play. Indiana State has won three straight in league play. But I have not been impressed by this team at all. They are 6-0 ATS in their last six games but now they are overvalued by the books and the bettors. The value is going the other way on the more proven Panthers club. Northern Iowa has beaten Indiana State three straight times and will do it again today. The Panthers are 15-5 ATS in their last 20 league games and the road team is 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings in this series. I will go with UNI.
