The UAB Blazers will take on the New Mexico Lobos in the Las Vegas Invitational on Thursday night. 

UAB is coming off an 86-41 win over Alabama A&M on Sunday. The UAB Blazers shot 48% from the field and 13-of-26 from three point land. Jamal Johnson led five players in double digits with 15 points in 19 minutes. 

The UAB Blazers are averaging 86.8 points per game on 48.7% shooting from the field. They are allowing opponents to score 63.2 points per game which falls into the top 100 in division I.

The Blazers are also 1st in steals per game at 14.6 a contest. 

The Blazers are led in scoring by Jordan Walker who is averaging 17 points in four games of action. Behind him is Quan Jackson who puts up just under 15 a night. Michael Ertel averages 12 for the University of Alabama-Birmingham. 

The Lobos are 4-1 on the year and more specifically are in the middle of a three-game winning streak. They defeated Montana State and Grambling before beating Western New Mexico on Monday, 88-63. KJ Jenkins led the Lobos with 20 points off the bench. 

The New Mexico Lobos are averaging 86 points per game on 49.4% shooting from the field. The Lobos are allowing opponents to score 76.2 points per game. New Mexico is ranked 41st in free throw percentage as they are shooting 76.6% from the charity stripe.

The Lobos are getting great offensive production from their leading scorers Jaelen House and Jamal Mashburn. House is putting up 19.5 and Mashburn follows closely behind with 18.4 a night. The Lobos also feature 3 other players who average double figures in scoring with Gethro Muscadin, KJ Jenkins, and Javonte Johnson. 

The New Mexico Lobos are 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. A lot of their deeper trends extend to last year’s team but that was before the hiring of Patino. This Lobos team has shown that they are new and improved. 

Both of these are very similar in that they have high scoring offenses with multiple players who could have big games scoring the ball. I like the Lobos to keep this one way closer than the line suggests. I could even see them winning outright, but will take the points to be safe.
