UAB Blazers vs USF Bulls prediction

The UAB Blazers are playing their best ball of the season right now, and they gave USF all it could handle on the road back in January. However, I'm just not eager to jump in front of the USF Bulls, a team that's lost once since January 12 and is 20-7-3 ATS on the season. USF is 7-2-1 ATS in its last 10 games. USF is winning and winning big during this stretch, and I'd need more points to consider the other side. We're laying less than a full bucket with USF. Give me the Bulls to advance to the AAC Tournament Final.
