Over on the UTEP side, they’re currently 13-9 this year. The Miners are 2-2 in their last four games, falling to UTSA and North Texas while otherwise beating Rice and Middle Tennessee in that time. 

In the win over the Raiders, UTEP’s lead scorer was Bryson Williams with 28 points, 10 rebounds and two assists. Efe Odigie also doubled up there with 15 points and 10 rebounds for the Miners.
The Miners are 1-4 ATS in their last five Saturday games and 1-4 ATS in their last five home games. The over is 6-2 in UTEP’s last eight home games and the under is 18-6 in their last 24 Saturday games. 

Meanwhile, the Blazers are 2-5 ATS in their last seven after a straight-up win and 11-4-1 ATS in their last 16 after an ATS win. The over is 4-1 in UAB’s last five overall and 7-3 in their last 10 road games.
UAB has been pretty shaky when it comes to putting up points lately, with 68 or fewer points in four of their last six games. The Blazers have also given up a few big points totals, like 93 versus FIU and 84 versus Southern Miss. 

As for UTEP, they’ve been somewhat hit and miss over their last six games or so as well, but they’ve also got some solid outings mixed in there. I’m going to stick with the Miners on the cover here.
