North Texas faces Southern Miss on Thursday, January 27th, 2022 at Reed Green Coliseum for a college basketball C-USA matchup.
North Texas is coming off a 69-56 win over Old Dominion in its last game on January 22nd at home. North Texas has now won five straight games, all in conference play, and is in a three-way tie for first place in its half of the C-USA standings with UAB and Louisiana Tech. North Texas is 13-4 overall, 6-1 in conference play, and 9-5-1 against the spread to start the season. North Texas' leading scorer so far this season has been G Tylor Perry, who has scored 14.3 points per game for the Mean Green. F Thomas Bell leads the team in rebounds per game (7.0) and assists per game (2.8). North Texas as a team has scored 66.8 points per game and has shot the ball at a 43.8% clip from the field. North Texas has also allowed 56.4 points per game to its opponents as well.
Southern Miss is coming off a 74-60 loss to Middle Tennessee in its last game on the road on January 22nd. Southern Miss has lost four of its last five games and is a measly 1-4 in conference play to start the season. Overall, Southern Miss owns a 6-12 record and the Golden Eagles have struggled against the spread, going 6-10 ATS this season. Southern Miss' leading scorer so far this season has been F Tyler Stevenson, who has scored 14.4 points per game and has earned 8.4 rebounds per game. G Walyn Napper leads the team in assists per game with 4.1. Southern Miss as a team has scored 63.5 points per game and has shot the ball at a 43.0% clip from the field. Southern Miss has also allowed 71.2 points per game to its opponents.
North Texas is a 14-point favorite and the total is set at 120. I do not see a way that Southern Miss gets to 60 in this one, as this North Texas defense is the real deal. I think the Mean Green control the pace of play here, even on the road, and I like UNT to earn the win and cover for its seventh conference win and sixth straight overall.
