Southern Illinois vs. San Francisco Odds
|Southern Illinois Odds||+10|
|San Francisco Odds||-10|
|Time||5 p.m. ET|
This is a surprisingly decent game between two top-130 teams.
San Francisco (11-1) is ranked a ridiculous 34th according to KenPom, the highest mark for a mid-major not named Gonzaga or Loyola Chicago.
The Dons’ only loss came in an away game by one point to Grand Canyon, which ranks No. 119 overall in KenPom’s rankings. San Francisco has beaten Davidson (56th), Nevada (75th), Fresno State (84th), Arizona State (95th) and UNLV (142nd).
Meanwhile, the Southern Illinois Salukis are 7-4 but have solid wins over 76th-ranked Colorado and No. 231 Evansville. They compete in the Missouri Valley Conference with Loyola Chicago and consistently trot out a decent squad.
It looks like San Francisco has the distinct advantage in this game. But that’s not where the sharps and experts are heading.
