College Basketball Odds
Total: 153 points
Gonzaga is going to drill South Dakota State. The Jackrabbits have the worst defensive efficiency numbers of any team that made the tour name this season, giving up 112.1 points per 100 possessions. That’s really bad and ranks 307th nationally. For what it’s worth the Jackrabbits surrender 77.4 points per game to their opponents this season.
Offensively, South Dakota State scores 77.6 points per game, so their opponents are in every single matchup with the Jackrabbits, who enter the game with an 18-16 overall record with six consecutive victories. They have some swagger going but it’s going to take a colossal effort from South Dakota State to beat Gonzaga.
Mike Daum averages better than 25 points per game for the Jackrabbits, but he alone can’t beat the Zags. South Dakota State certainly exceeded expectations to still have a team alive at this point, given then finished 8-8 in the conference. The team started the season 1-6 as well.
Gonzaga will win and they will score a ton of points here.
