North Texas -4 Point Spread

Under 142 Game Totals

Against The Spread Pick

This Conference USA game will see the top team, North Texas, take on the 5th place team, Florida International. The Mean Green are an impressive 12-3 in their CUSA games this season, yet only hold a one game lead over Louisiana Tech and Western Kentucky. While it will not guarantee a conference championship, the top four seeds will earn an automatic bye to the quarterfinals. That being said, it makes this game extremely important for Florida International as well. The first meetings back in January resulted in a 74-56 point win for the Mean Green and this meeting should be a similar result. North Texas are 8-5 ATS in games away from home this season and I look for them to take care of business on Thursday night.

Over Under Pick

I really do not love this total as we have two inconsistent teams. The Panthers average 77 points per game at home, but over their last five games, this average has dropped to 68 points. On the flip side, North Texas are scoring 72 points over their last five game, where they usually only average 66 points on the road. The under is 11-4 in Florida International’s last 15 home games and 12-5 in North Texas’ last 17 road games. The under is also 4-0 in the last 4 meetings, so that is my lean for this game.
