Against The Spread Pick
These are two teams with matching ATS records over the course of the season. The Eagles and the Mavericks are both 11-13-2 ATS which suggests this will be a close game on the spread. The Eagles have not been brilliant defensively this season and they give up 73.1 ppg on their travels. The Mavericks will counter this well as they average 71.5 ppg and giving up just 65.1 at home. The Mavericks are also in good form having won three games on the trot and four of their last six in conference play. They are the pick here at home as they already have 70-62 win over Georgia Southern this season on the road.
Over Under Pick
If both these teams play to their potential then they will be able to run down the total. The problem is that we just haven’t seen enough of that level of play from either the Eagles or the Mavericks this season, with both sides struggling with turnovers and empty possessions because of them. Georiga Southern has a 6-7 O/U record away from home this season while UT Arlington is 5-6 on the O/U on their home court. The total just seems about five to ten points too high for where these schools can reasonably expect to get to unless an individual or two on either said goes off on a scoring spree on Saturday afternoon.
