The Owls are 6-14 ATS in their last 20 road games. The Owls are also 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games following three or more consecutive home games and are 4-10-1 ATS in their last 15 Thursday games. The Blazers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss and are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 Thursday games. The Blazers are 16-5 ATS in their last 21 games following a straight up loss. Rice is just that bad, and I don’t think they can keep pace with UAB at home.
