North Texas vs. UAB Pick

UAB/North Texas Over 59 (-115) Bet $100 to collect $186 Get the best odds at Circa Sports

We're going to Circa for this one even though I don't like betting into those guys. They are very sharp. Maybe the sharpest. Still, this feels like a number that is going to get adjusted so we need to move. Like now. If you can't play at Circa (they are only available in limited states) then 60 is the number you're looking at. Caesars has it at -110 which is the best I've seen so that feels like the place to be. Keep in mind, the no-vig fair odds on this thing at 60 using a sharp book I won't mention is -103. Still, I think it goes at least to 60.5 by tip-off.

North Texas vs. UAB Prediction

Jelly Walker. That's it. That's the analysis. The kid is back and since he's been back, the UAB offense has been humming along. We've seen two 40-burgers out of them in the first halves of the last two games he's played which is huge. If you get a 40-burger on a sub-60 line, you're winning a lot of overs. That's just how counting works. It's easy. Still, we want both teams to be involved and I think North Texas is a good one for this bet.

The thing about North Texas is they play pretty slow so it keeps the number down. The good news is, I doubt they'll be able to do that tonight though. Obviously, they will do what they can but given the pace of UAB and the fact that Jelly is playing give the over a little boost. The haters are going to say I'm wrong but they're forgetting that the last time these teams played they combined for 69 points in the first half. It wasn't until the second half that things tightened up. The clincher is Jelly Walker didn't even play that game. He's in tonight and UAB will be looking for revenge. I think this thing looks fun early. Feels right.
