The North Texas Mean Green are 16-12 (9-7) this season after they defeated ECU by a score of 84-69 in their last game. North Texas led 40-29 at halftime and added 44 second half points for the win.

FAU vs North Texas Betting Prediction

North Texas comes into this matchup on a two game winning streak and they are one of the better defensive teams in the country once again this season. The Mean Green are only allowing 62 points against per game this year, but they will face a high-powered FAU offense in this contest. The Owls are scoring 82.8 points per game, but their defense has really let them down, especially on the road. FAU was supposed to be a dominant team in the AAC this year, but they will most likely finish second in the conference. The Owls have had some issues covering the spread on the road this year, but I like them to pick up a win here.
