Against The Spread Pick
Both of these teams are coming into this ending their regular season’s on losses. Seattle’s offense can put up a lot of points, but they don’t shoot the ball very efficiently. They rank 323rd in field goal percentage and 301st in three point percentage, despite averaging 75 points per game. Utah Valley just plays an all around average game on both sides of the ball. The last game between these two was an exciting 87-85 victory for the Redhawks. Seattle is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games, while Utah Valley is 6-12 ATS in their last 18 games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games played in March. I think Seattle should be able to get it done and cover here.
Over Under Pick
Last time these two played the total was run up into the 170s. Both offenses rank below average in offensive efficiency, but rank above average in tempo. These are two teams that like to get the ball up court fast and if they shoot well have the ability for a high total. The total has gone over in 9 of Seattle’s last 11 games this season and in 9 of Seattle’s last 10 games against an opponent in the Western Athletic conference. I am going to lean an over with a repeat performance of last game.
