Morehead State is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS win. The under is 9-2 in Morehead State’s last 11 games. UAB is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games. The under is 4-1 in UAB’s last 5 home games.
UAB has a very good team this season and they come into this game after winning nine of their last ten games. Morehead State has won six of their last seven games, including a great road win against Clemson in round one. UAB is scoring over 81 points per game and they are great on the defensive end of the floor, but I think this is too many points. Morehead State was the best team in the OVC this season and they will have a ton of momentum coming into this game. I like the Eagles here.
