College Basketball Betting Trends

South Dakota

The Fighting Hawks are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games versus an opponent with a winning percentage above .600. South Dakota is 33-16-2 ATS in its last 55 games following a straight up win.


The Golden Eagles are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games following a straight up win. The under is 7-3 in the last 10 Marquette games on Tuesdays.


The Golden Eagles continue to get better, but after such a huge win and long layoff I could see a letdown here. North Dakota isn't very good, but I can easily see this game staying within a 21-point or less margin. I'm not ready to sign off on Marquette winning by this many points against an opponent that has been reasonably competitive in most games this season.
