Denver at Omaha odds, picks and prediction

The Denver Pioneers (9-19, 5-10 Summit) visit the Omaha Mavericks (4-22, 3-12) Thursday at Baxter Arena in Omaha, Neb. Tip-off is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET. Below, we look at the Denver vs. Omaha odds and lines, and make our expert college basketball picks, predictions and bets.

The Pioneers head into this one on a three-game slide, although they’re a respectable 2-2 ATS across the past four. When Denver faced Omaha in the first meeting, Jan. 22 in the Mile High City, the Pioneers powered past the Mavericks, 94-63, as 6.5-point favorites with the Over cashing.

The Mavs have been dreadful this season, winning just once in the past 11 games. Omaha is a solid 4-2 ATS across the past six games, though, and 8-4 ATS across the past 12 games overall, too.

Denver at Omaha odds, lines, picks and predictions


Denver 77, Omaha 73

Money line

DENVER (-135) is a decent play on the road against skidding Omaha (+110), a team it annihilated in the Mile High City in the first meeting. Denver is a respectable 3-5 SU across the past eight outings, which isn’t great, but that’s just one more win than Omaha has for the entire season.

Against the spread

Play DENVER -1.5 (-115) in this road outing, as the Pioneers have covered four in a row on the road, including a cover at powerful North Dakota State Feb. 5, as 12.5-point underdogs. Omaha +1.5 (-107) is 6-1 ATS across the past seven at home, so this won’t be an easy win for Denver, but they’re not losing against a four-win team.


The OVER 148.5 (-115) is worth a small-unit play in this Summit League clash. The total has gone Over in 12 of the previous 13 meetings in this series.

The Over is 4-0 in the past four for Denver as a favorite, while going 7-1 in the past eight against teams with a losing record. Omaha has hit the Over in 15 of the past 20 games overall, while going 14-5 in the past 19 as an underdog, and 9-1 in the past 10 against teams with a losing overall mark.
