Summit League produced the best Cinderella in the 2021 NCAA Tournament, as Oral Roberts excelled as the 15th seed and they will be looking to return to the league this season.
The South Dakota State Jackrabbit team is heavily supported this convention, but there’s always room for discomfort in post-season college basketball.
Take a look at the odds through WynnBET for the Summit League and one more selection:
Here’s a look at the Summit League Conference League Standings:
South Dakota State and North Dakota State claimed the top two seeds while last year’s pet, Oral Roberts, was the third seed this season. All of these teams will play in the quarterfinals as they look to win automatic bidding rights for the NCAA Tournament.
The Summit League will begin March 5 and run through March 8 at the PREMIER Denny Sanford Center.
All four quarterfinals and both semifinals will be televised on Midco Sports and streamed live on Midco Sports Plus and ESPN+. The championship match kicks off at 9 p.m. EST and will be televised live on ESPN2.
South Dakota State is a favorite, and for good reason, as it won 18-0 in the conference game this season. However, there is little value in exercising a favorite level of -225 in the futures market.
While Jackrabbit could run away with this, Oral Robets had the second-highest adjusted effective margin (how much would it beat the average competitor) in the conference.
Oral Roberts may have the best shot of them all, coming in 2nd for effective goalscoring rate and attacking efficiency in the Summit League. If the State of South Dakota stumbles, the Golden Eagles could make the tour for a second consecutive season.
If you’re looking for a really deep pick, don’t be surprised if South Dakota (+2000) joins this tournament.
The Coyotes have two things that I really love about a black team, a solid defense (ranked 5 in several key defensive stats) and strong offensive power, as they are 3rd in Summit League in effective on-field goal ratio and Number 2 in 3-point shooting.
It will be difficult to beat the Jackrabbits in the second round, but if the Coyotes do, they will face a much easier match in the championship match.
