Virginia is 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games. The over is 8-2-1 in Virginia’s last 11 road games. North Texas is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games and 12-5-1 ATS in their last 18 games following an ATS loss. The under is 7-3 in North Texas’ last 10 games.
Both of these teams played very close contests in the opening round of the NIT. North Texas has not played well in their last few games and will be facing a very good Virginia team. Both of these teams play at a slow pace, but I think the total is way too low here. I like the over.
