Prediction

Niagra comes into this game having covered in 60% of there games at home. Siena, on the other hand, has covered in 25% of there games on the road. Siena comes into this game after a loss on Friday at Canisius. After Siena racked up 4 wins in a row they have struggled as of late failing to cover in there last 7 games. A big part of Niagara’s game has been there free throw shooting. Currently, they are shooting at 76.8% from beyond the charity strike, while Siena has only shot 68.0% from the free-throw line. I am taking Niagara +3 in this game.

Best Bet: Niagara +3

Prediction

South Dakota takes on South Dakota State after this game was postponed on Saturday due to bad weather. South Dakota has struggled as of late, but they have covered decently well at home. Currently, they are covering at 66.7% while South Dakota State is covering at 60% on the road. South Dakota has been doing a crazy job of shooting the 3. There 3pt% sits at 40.5% while South Dakota State is only shooting at 34.3%. In a weak Sunday slate of college basketball, this will be a great game. I am taking the South Dakota Money Line in this one.

Best Bet: South Dakota ML +100
