The The South Dakota State Jackrabbits and Boise State Broncos meet Wednesday in college basketball action at the ExtraMile Arena. The South Dakota State Jackrabbits look for a bounce back showing after losing their opener to Akron. The Boise State Broncos are coming off a 27-win season.

The South Dakota State Jackrabbits are averaging 80 points on 52.5 percent shooting and allowing 81 points on 43.5 percent shooting. Matt Dentlinger is averaging 15 points and 6 rebounds, while William Kyle III is averaging 14 points and 3 rebounds. Zeke Mayo is the third double-digit scorer and Alex Arians is grabbing 4 rebounds. The South Dakota State Jackrabbits are shooting 26.7 percent from beyond the arc and 82.4 percent from the free throw line. The South Dakota State Jackrabbits are allowing 35.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33 rebounds per game.

The Boise State Broncos enter the 13th season under coach Leon Rice. Marcus Shaver Jr. returns after averaging 13.3 points and 3.7 rebounds, while Tyson Degenhart averaged 9.9 points and 0.9 assists. Max Rice played in 759 minutes last season, and Naje Smith averaged 2.8 rebounds. The Boise State Broncos lose two of their better players in Emmanuel Akot and Abu Kigab, but the majority of the remaining key players are back. Chibuzo Agbo transfers from Texas Tech and Mohamed Sylla comes over from Detroit. Sadraque Nganga is also a 4-star recruit who had offers from Kansas, Auburn, and Arizona. Boise State will be a factor in the MWC this season.

The Jackrabbits are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Wednesday games. The Broncos are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 home games and 19-7-1 ATS in their last 27 Wednesday games. The over is 8-3 in Jackrabbits last 11 road games. The under is 5-2 in Broncos last 7 home games.

The South Dakota State Jackrabbits have the benefit of having a game under their belt, and that makes them a live dog here. However, winning in Boise is never easy, and the Broncos return a good portion of last year’s roster while bringing in some respectable players. The line isn’t anything crazy. I’ll lay the reasonable number with Boise State at home.
