College Basketball Plays 1/3/21

**Rhode Island (#830) -11.5 vs St Josephs:  Rhode Island’s home victory over St. Bonaventure looks even more impressive now after the Bonnies handled Richmond on the road yesterday. St. Joseph’s underlying numbers are poor and they are allowing over 90-points per game. No reason to think that Rhode Island does not roll here. Lay it.

**Southern Illinois (#841) +11.5 at Drake: Drake has been a cover machine to start the season but their competition has been abysmal. This is a situation where one team (undefeated Drake) looks heads and shoulders above a team (So Illinois) coming off a double digit loss. Keep in mind that So Illinois played Evansville twice in back to back games – they won game 1 and lost 24 hours later in game 2. There’s nothing strange with that as the 2-game split has been happening at a high clip early on this season. Southern Illinois actually has better underlying assist and turnover numbers than Drake. Take the points with the Salukis in this one.
