Rice is 5-13 ATS in their last 18 road games and 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 Thursday games. The over is 6-2 in Rice’s last 8 road games. Louisiana Tech is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Thursday games and 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 home games. The under is 4-1 in Louisiana Tech’s last 5 games. The home team is 8-0 ATS in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings.

Louisiana Tech started conference play very strong, but lost their last game to UAB. Rice hasn’t been as fortunate, dropping three of their seven conference games. These two teams are similar and it should be a good game. I like Rice to keep it close on the road.
