Texas State is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games. The under is 6-1-1 in Texas State’s last 8 road games. North Texas is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games and 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 games following an ATS loss. The under is 20-8 in North Texas’ last 28 games.

Both of these teams had disappointing conference tournaments, but will look to finish the season strong in the NIT. North Texas played in low scoring games all season long, but I like the over here. Playing in the NIT is great for these teams, but I don’t expect the passion on defense to be there.
