South Dakota State at Denver odds, picks and prediction

The South Dakota State Jackrabbits (21-4, 12-0 Summit) and Denver Pioneers (9-17, 5-8) meet Thursday at Hamilton Gymnasium in Denver. Tip-off is slated for 9 p.m. ET. Below, we look at the South Dakota State vs. Denver odds and lines, and make our expert college basketball picks, predictions and bets.

South Dakota State has not lost since Dec. 15. The Jackrabbits — who live up to their name by playing the fastest-tempo ball in the Summit League — have won 12 straight games since while outscoring opponents by 14.7 points per game.

SDSU has scored 87.0 PPG which ranks second on NCAA-I. Included in the Jackrabbits’ 12-game win streak is an 80-62 home triumph over Denver Jan. 15.

Denver is 3-3 since that mid-January date and is coming off a 73-65 setback at North Dakota State Saturday. DU is a very good 3-point shooting team (35.9%, 69th nationally), but overall the Pioneers rank as a bottom-third team nationally in offensive and defensive efficiency.

Overall, Denver is 6-5 at home but is just 1-3 in its last four efforts on home hardwood.

South Dakota State at Denver odds, lines, picks and predictions

Prediction

South Dakota State 88, Denver 73

Money line

PASS.

Against the spread

The road team has won five in a row ATS in this series. SDSU is 4-2 ATS over their last six games on two or more days’ rest.

The Jackrabbits were favored by 19.5 points in the first meeting as the Pioneers covered by 1.5. South Dakota State led that game by 14-to-26 points for most of the way.

The Jackrabbits have been getting to the line more of late. They are a solid play to get this game into a spot where they aren’t hurt by a back-door leak at the end considering the way they can pile up 1s and 3s at pace.

BACK SOUTH DAKOTA STATE -12.5 (-107).

Over/Under

Take the ‘Rabbits and their pace. The Over went 4-2 in those half-dozen recent extra-rest games for SDSU.

BACK THE OVER 155.5 (-110).
