S. Illinois PK
ANALYSIS: My model says Southern Illinois covers about two-thirds of the time and wins by seven, so you're getting strong value at this number. The Salukis lead the conference in scoring defense (60.8 points per game) and have held their first 14 opponents to fewer than 70 points -- the longest streak since 2006-07. In addition, Southern Illinois has won four of the last five meetings with UNI at the Banterra Center. I'm on the Salukis.
