Missouri State vs. Indiana State

According to KenPom, Indiana St. has efficiency differential of +6.8, while Missouri St. has an efficiency differential of only +3.1.

My model also makes this line a few points different, so I think the wrong team is favored in this game.

These teams spilt the regular season matchups, both winning on the other’s home floor. The line opened at Missouri St. -1 and has climbed to -2 this morning despite 80% of the money as of 10 a.m. ET being on Indiana State.

When Indiana St. Has the Ball

Outside of Northern Iowa, Indiana State may have the most efficient offense in the MVC.
