According to KenPom, Drake has the 277th best defense in the nation, based on efficiency. The Bulldogs are giving up nearly 109 points per 100 possessions.
Drake beat Wake Forest earlier this season and came very close versus Colorado. It also has a couple of blowouts against opponents tastier than cupcakes. But that porous defense was on display in back-to-back losses at Wyoming and South Dakota just last week.
Drake gave up 189 points in those two losses, combined. But senior guard Reed Timmer can keep up. He’s averaging over 22 points per game on 56 percent three-point shooting, which is significantly better than his rate from two. He also shoots 92 percent from the line.
Minnesota, meanwhile, is about 19 points better than Drake according to the KenPom metrics. The Gophers are also 19.5-point favorites in Vegas on their home floor.
The Gophers started 7–0 with a win over a ranked opponent in Alabama in that crazy game when the Crimson Tide finished with three players on the floor.
Minnesota has already started the Big Ten play but will step outside for this one and a few more before getting back into conference in 2018. The Gophers lost at Nebraska and blew out Rutgers at home.
The Gophers have a top-25 offense in terms of points per possession and should be able to hang a serious total in this game. It feels like things could get up and down in Minnesota against an opponent that won’t do much to try and slow things down.
