College basketball picks for Drake vs. Bradley

Before tuning into the Bradley vs. Drake game, you need to see the college basketball picks from SportsLine’s advanced computer model. The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every Division I college basketball game 10,000 times. The model enters Week 17 of the season 76-46 on all top-rated college basketball picks this season, returning more than $1,600 for $100 players. Anybody who has followed it has seen huge returns.

For Bradley vs. Drake, the model says the Braves win and cover the spread. Bradley won the Missouri Valley Conference regular-season title with an impressive 10-game winning streak that culminated in a 73-61 win over Drake in the final game.

Bradley has since gone on to beat Northern Iowa and Indiana State during Arch Madness to extend its winning streak to 12 games and have been impressive on defense and efficient offensively during that span. Opponents are shooting just 40.7% from the floor and 30.4% from the 3-point line, averaging just 62.2 points per game. Bradley averages 72.4 points and shoots 47.6% from the floor as well as 36.7% from beyond the arc.

Bradley hammered Drake on the boards in the win on Feb. 26 and were dominant at both ends of the floor, shooting 56.0% offensively while only allowing Drake to hit 38.1% of its field-goal attempts. That’s a big reason why the model has Bradley covering in well over 50% of simulations. Stream the game here.
