Will update with trends once they're released.
The Louisiana Tech Bulldogs have been head and shoulders the better team this season and have proven they can win on the road where they actually win by an average of 4.3 points and shoot 48.1 percent from the field. The UAB Blazers win at home by an average of 7.8 points, but they can be lackluster at times offensively and won't have the horses to keep up with Louisiana Tech if those shots start falling. I'll lay the small number with the much better team.
