The South Dakota Coyotes and Colorado State Rams meet Sunday in college basketball action at the Moby Arena.

The South Dakota Coyotes look for a victory here to get a game above a .500 record. The South Dakota Coyotes are averaging 64 points on 41.6 percent shooting and allowing 64.6 points on 42.9 percent shooting. Trey Burch-Manning is averaging 13.9 points and 7.1 rebounds while Triston Simpson is averaging 13.1 points and 2.9 assists. Tyler Peterson is the third double-digit scorer and Stanley Umude is grabbing 4.4 rebounds. The South Dakota Coyotes are shooting 29.4 percent from beyond the arc and 70.4 percent from the free throw line. The South Dakota Coyotes are allowing 30.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 27.6 rebounds per game. The South Dakota Coyotes have split their last eight road games.

The Colorado State Rams also need a win here to get a game above a .500 record. The Colorado State Rams are averaging 76.1 points on 46.5 percent shooting and allowing 79.8 points on 46.5 percent shooting. Jeremiah Paige is averaging 16.1 points and 4.7 rebounds while Anthony Bonner is averaging 14.6 points and 1.7 assists. Nico Carvacho is the third double-digit scorer and Kendle Moore is grabbing 2.5 rebounds. The Colorado State Rams are shooting 35 percent from beyond the arc and 70.5 percent from the free throw line. The Colorado State Rams are allowing 38.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 30.9 rebounds per game. The Colorado State Rams have won four of their last six home games.

The Coyotes are 12-3 ATS in their last 15 Sunday games, 2-6 ATS in their last 8 vs. Mountain West and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Rams are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 Sunday games, 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 19-7 in Rams last 26 overall. The under is 7-0 in Coyotes last 7 overall.

The Colorado State Rams are usually pretty good at home and have won four of their six at home this season. The South Dakota Coyotes are being outscored by 15 points in two road games this season and are shooting just 34.5 percent from the field in those games. Colorado State is much better offensively than South Dakota and will have the best player in this game in Paige. I'll lay the bucket with the Rams at home.

Pick:
Colorado State Rams -3
