TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION TUESDAY, MARCH 8TH
#622 SOUTH DAKOTA ST (-6) over North Dakota St at 9 PM EST
With a Big Dance ticket on the line, a chance to win its 30th game of the season, and finish with an undefeated 19-0 SU mark in conference play, South Dakota State will have no trouble piling up points and racing past North Dakota State. The Bison enter this championship game on a nifty 3-0 SU and ATS run, and they will finally meet their match against the mighty Jackrabbits.
Historically speaking, SDSU has played well in this series lately posting a proud 10-2 SU and 8-4 ATS record in the last 12 meetings. In addition, when priced as an underdog or a favorite of -13.5 or less, head coach Eric Henderson’s boys hold a powerful 52-20 SU and 43-21 ATS record in their last 72 games including a nearly perfect 12-1 ATS in this run if they are battling a foe that enters off a blowout win of 13 points or more. Also, when matched up against an opponent that busts in with confidence off a straight up win, the Jackrabbits hold a reliable 100-60 ATS mark.
This isn’t the best wagering spot for NDSU. When hitting the hardwood with steam off two or more straight up wins, the Bison carry a soft 11-22 ATS tally provided their opponent enters with confidence off a straight up win. In this role priced competitively as an underdog of +8.5 down to pick, North Dakota State crashes to a woeful 1-9 SU and 0-8 ATS. Lastly, in a conference tournament championship game, underdogs priced at +2 or more that are running the court with same season double revenge own a disgusting 10-39 SU and 16-32-1 ATS record provided they sport a team won/loss percentage of .701 or better.
The Jackrabbits have been the class of the League this season and they will lean on their high-octane offense to cash this ticket. Take South Dakota State. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
