UAB is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 Thursday games. The over is 5-1 in UAB’s last 6 games. North Texas is 10-1 ATS in their last 11 Thursday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games. The under is 5-1 in North Texas’ last 6 home games. The road team is 5-0 ATS in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.
North Texas comes into this game on a roll and will be looking to go 2-0 in conference play. Both of these teams have allowed less than 61 points per game, so it could be a low scoring game. UAB has a better offense, averaging over 82 points per game, while North Texas plays at a slower pace. I am going to take UAB in this game because they shoot the ball better and are the better rebounding team.
