Against The Spread Pick
Western Kentucky is fresh off wins against FIU and LA Tech, two teams that are highly ranked in this Conference USA tournament. They went 2-1 in their last three games, only losing to the number one ranked Northern Texas. UAB on the other side is on a two game wins streak, in which they closed out the regular season beating Old Dominion, and then winning a first round matchup vs UTSA. UAB was only one win away from matching Western Kentucky’s total, however, they are not the favorites tonight. Western Kentucky is too much of a powerhouse in the Conference USA for UAB to handle. Take Western Kentucky tonight.
Over Under Pick
Western Kentucky reached 70 points in each of their last five games, including two 90 point performances vs FIU and LA Tech. So they are not the team to worry about in the scoring department. UAB on the other hand has had some up and down games to end their season, including some 80 point performances but also a game where they failed to reach 60. I’m going to lean towards the idea that UAB is going to have one of their high scoring nights, making the OVER the correct choice.
