South Dakota at Denver odds, lines, picks and predictions

Prediction

South Dakota 72, Denver 66

Money line

Both of these teams are above-average offensively, can knock down 3s and struggle at the defensive end. The difference-makers for the favored Coyotes are turnover avoidance, defensive rebounding and getting to the free-throw line. Those are significant factors, and USD has played better of late than its win-loss record indicates.

BACK SOUTH DAKOTA (-175).

Against the spread

The Coyotes are 5-0 ATS in their last five games as a favorite while the Pioneers are 0-4 ATS in their last four games as home underdogs.

TAKE THE COYOTES -3.5 (-107) and figure this play as having a bit more value than the ML action.

Over/Under

This matchup fits as an Under lean with the wish of a number set in the 142-144 range. Not all wishes come true: PASS.
