The South Dakota Coyotes and Omaha Mavericks meet Monday in college basketball action at the Baxter Arena.
The South Dakota Coyotes look to stay hot after winning six of their last seven games. The South Dakota Coyotes are averaging 78.7 points on 48.8 percent shooting and allowing 74.4 points on 45.9 percent shooting. Tyler Hagedorn is averaging 19.1 points and two assists while Stanley Umude is averaging 17 points and 6.7 rebounds. Triston Simpson is the third double-digit scorer and Cody Kelley is grabbing 3.7 rebounds. The South Dakota Coyotes are shooting 41.2 percent from beyond the arc and 75.5 percent from the free throw line. The South Dakota Coyotes are allowing 36.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 30.5 rebounds per game. The South Dakota Coyotes have lost five of their last six road games.
The Omaha Mavericks look for a win after splitting their last four games. The Omaha Mavericks are averaging 73.2 points on 45.4 percent shooting and allowing 76.2 points on 44.4 percent shooting. JT Gibson is averaging 14.6 points and 2.6 rebounds while KJ Robinson is averaging 14.4 points and 2.1 rebounds. Matt Pile is the third double-digit scorer and Ayo Akinwole is grabbing 4.3 rebounds. The Omaha Mavericks are shooting 34.9 percent from beyond the arc and 70.3 percent from the free throw line. The Omaha Mavericks are allowing 36.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.1 rebounds per game. The Omaha Mavericks have won all 10 home games.
The Coyotes are 1-8 ATS in their last 9 road games, 2-6 ATS in their last 8 Sunday games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Mavericks are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Sunday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The over is 8-3 in Coyotes last 11 overall. The over is 4-0 in Mavericks last 4 overall. The home team is 6-2-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings. The favorite is 8-0-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings.
The South Dakota Coyotes have failed to cover seven of their nine road games, while the Omaha Mavericks are undefeated SU and 6-3 ATS at home. The home and road splits provide good reason to think Omaha should be favored. However, the South Dakota Coyotes have been the better team overall this season and are shooting 53.6 percent from the field and 44.4 percent from deep in their last five games. I have a thing where I usually take the better team whenever I can get free points. I have to do it with the South Dakota Coyotes here as well.
