UAB vs. NORTH TEXAS (128) - at Las Vegas, NV
By Tommy Brunson, Featured Handicapper
Wow! Just way off the mark with last night's Over release on the Timberwolves and Suns as they could have played multiple overtimes and still not gone Over the posted price.
Today is a new day, in fact, it is opening day, and I have an easy money MLB winner for you to sink your teeth into.
Opening Day Mismatch Lock
3-Run Winner - Has not started
Tommy Knows the Diamond!
If you are reading this text, the game has not started. This one will be the blowout winner that you are looking for on the diamond this Thursday.
Time to open the season with a winner.
This year's NIT Final will feature a pair of conference rivals who will be facing one another for the 4th time this season!
UAB and North Texas are Conference USA rivals who played their home-and-home games during the regular season and then also battled in the semifinals of the season-ending conference tournament. It should be noted that in 2 of those 3 meetings, including the last pair, the Over was the play.
In fact, 4 of the last 6 series meetings between these conference rivals have landed Over the posted price.
The Blazers do average 81.3 points per game, but have only landed Over the total in 1 of their last 5 games, and that was in Tuesday's semifinal win over Utah Valley that needed overtime to decide.
The Mean Green only allows 55.7 points per game, but 4 of their last 6 games played this year - including their conference tourney meeting against UAB - have played Over the posted price.
With these teams being more than familiar with one another, I will look for the baskets to be a little easier to come by for both teams and for the Over to be the play on Thursday in Las Vegas in this year's NIT Final.
