The Coyotes are 5-1 ATS in their last six Monday games. South Dakota is 0-4 ATS in its last four road games.
The Huskies are 1-4 ATS in their last five Monday games. Washington is 1-4 ATS in its last five games following an ATS win.
I'm not sure how good this Huskies team really is. They are very good defensively, but just outside the top 100 in adjusted offensive efficiency and have benefited from a relatively soft home schedule. Washington does have a very good win over a Baylor squad in a neutral setting in its opener, but faltered in a neutral court game against Tennessee a couple weeks ago. The Coyotes are strong offensively and while they have defensive deficiencies, those can probably be masked somewhat by the Huskies' occasional offensive struggles. I'm going to take South Dakota to stay within the number.
