UAB was led by guard Tavin Lovan who put up 17 points against UTSA and that was a big key for them winning. 

Western Kentucky had a first round bye during the Conference USA showdown but over their last eight games they have won six of the games. In Western Kentucky’s last game they went on the road and put up 95 points against FIU and that led to a six point victory. 

Over the last five games, Western Kentucky is averaging 81 points per game while the defense is giving up 79.8 points. 

Western Kentucky is led by guard Taveion Hollingsworth who is averaging 16.6 points while shooting 47.1 percent from the field. 

UAB is 7-1 against the spread in their last eight games played on a neutral court. Western Kentucky is 17-7 against the spread in their last 24 games played on Thursday. 

Western Kentucky is the better team and their offense is going to run up the score. Look for UAB to have issues keeping up and that will lead to a cover by the Hilltoppers.
