ATS PICK: North Dakota
Bet on this, BetMGM latest line

This is a straight technical call/play.

Good team, at home, getting more than a touchdown – but there’s a problem.

South Dakota State is potentially FCS national championship-good.

The Jackrabbits are not only solid, but they got the job done in Week 1 on the road against a good Northern Iowa team that had the game all but won before gacking it away with a few late defensive misfires.

South Dakota State pulled off the 24-20 win helped by an outstanding performance from the defense that stuffed the UNI running game all night long. However, the Jackrabbit O wasn’t great until it absolutely had to be.

North Dakota did everything right – including taking the ball away five times – in a fantastic 44-21 win over Southern Illinois. Of course, it’s always dangerous to assume too much after Week 1 of any season – the South Dakota State offense could be much stronger, the North Dakota D isn’t going to come up with five turnovers again, and …

The Fighting Hawks are decent enough to possibly win this thing straight up, much less get 7.5 at home.
