South Dakota State vs St. Thomas Betting Prediction

South Dakota State finished the regular season with a 12-4 conference record and they finished first in the Summit League standings. The Jackrabbits are allowing 71.6 points against per game on defense, but their offense has been able to cover by scoring over 77 points per game. St. Thomas finished the season with a 9-7 record and they finished fourth in the standings. South Dakota State won both meetings with St. Thomas during the regular season by scores of 81-80 and 77-72. The Jackrabbits have done a great job winning games, but St. Thomas has played them tough this season and I think they can take advantage of the South Dakota State defense. I do think St. Thomas will be able to keep it close, but with this line as close as it is, I like South Dakota State to win.
