The South Dakota State Jackrabbits and Boise State Broncos face off on Wednesday in a college basketball showdown at the ExtraMile Arena.
The Boise State Broncos will be led again by Leon Rice, who is one of the better coaches in college basketball that isn’t talked about a lot. He is entering his 13th year in charge of the team. Marcus Shaver entered the NBA Draft, but withdrew and decided to come back for another season. Last season, he averaged 13.3 points while shooting 40.8 percent from the field. Tyson Degenhart averaged 9.9 points per game, and they are going to need him to take a step forward here. In this game, Boise State is going to need the defense to have a big game.
On the other side of this matchup is South Dakota State, and they opened up their season with a loss against the Akron Zips. The Jackrabbits blew a lead late, and ended up losing 81-80 in overtime. In the first half, South Dakota State scored 41 points, but in the second half, the offense only scored 29 points. Five different players finished in double figures. Matt Dentlinger played 24 minutes and finished with 15 points and six rebounds. The Jackrabbits only played eight players. This is not a very deep team, so if they get into foul trouble, that could be a problem.
South Dakota State is 5-1 against the spread in their six road games. South Dakota State is 0-4 against the spread in their last four games on Wednesday. The over is 4-0 in the Bronco's last 4 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of less than .400. The over is 7-1 in Boise State’s last 8 games vs. a team with a winning % below .400. The Broncos are 1-4 against the spread in their last 5 games against a team with a losing straight-up record.
South Dakota State is going to score plenty again in this game, but their defense is again still clearly an issue, and they are going to struggle again in this game. Look for both offenses to find success scoring here, and that is going to lead to this game going over the total. Back the over to cash.
