Bradley vs. Northern Iowa Odds
|Northern Iowa Odds||-4.5|
|Date||Wednesday, Feb. 2|
|Time||8 p.m. ET|
The Missouri Valley Conference is one of the best mid-major conferences in college basketball.
Loyola-Chicago and Drake are the two teams that get talked about the most, but this conference has about six teams that could make a deep run in the NIT if not make the tournament.
Two of those teams are going at it tonight as the Bradley Braves take on the Northern Iowa Panthers.
The Panthers sit in fourth place in the Missouri Valley with a 7-2 record in the conference. Their overall record at 11-9 may be a little bit deceiving as they played the 59th-toughest non-conference schedule in the country.
Bradley is right behind Northern Iowa in the standings. They hold a 12-10 record and are 6-4 so far in the conference. The Braves are starting to get hot at the right time with four-straight wins.
It should be a barnburner of a matchup in the Missouri Valley, and Action Network has tracked sharp action coming in on one side.
