North Dakota is 17-36 ATS in their last 53 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 9-0 in their last 9 games overall. Oral Roberts is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400 and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games while the under is 7-2 in their last 9 games following an ATS loss.
I’m going to stick with Oral Roberts here. The Golden Eagles have simply been the team to beat in the Summit League this season and even though this is a big number, I’m not really looking to step in front of them when North Dakota is the alternative. The Fighting Hawks have been getting crushed by lesser teams in conference play and I think this is another spot where we should see a comfortable win from ORU here.
