The under is 7-2-1 in UAB’s last 10 road games. The under is 15-5-1 in UAB’s last 21 games played on Friday. North Texas is 16-5 against the spread in their last 21 home games. North Texas is 10-4 against the spread in their last 14 games played on Friday. 

North Texas is a good defensive team, but this total is just a little too low. I expect North Texas is going to score plenty and UAB will score just enough ot push this game over the total. Back the over to cash.
