UAB (1/6/2022)


Recommended Posts

Starting this thread a bit early because I'm already seeing promos for it.  Also seeing some noise about it being one of the best mid-major matchups in the country on this night.

As good as we have become defensively, I worry that not many UNT fans know how strong UAB is.  Hopefully we have a little extra fire in our bellies after going 0-fer last year against the Blazers.

Updated Odds:

Thursday’s College Basketball Best Bets - Action Network

North Texas is 1-7-1 to the over this season and also plays at the second-slowest adjusted tempo in college basketball, per KenPom. It utilizes, on average, 21.1 seconds per possession on offense and forces opponents to use up an average of 17.3 seconds of their shot clock.

The Mean Green also shoot only 31.5% from 3-point range and 47.4% from inside the arc. Since they have a top-40 defense, all of these signal under.

In addition, UAB holds opponents to an average of 17.5 seconds per possession on defense. This basically says the North Texas possessions will be sluggish.

Now, the Blazers do shoot 37.2% from distance. However, the Mean Green defend the arc extremely well with JJ Murray and Tylor Perry. They allow an average of only 28.1% from 3-point land.

North Texas launches a ton of 3s, so if they don’t fall, it will not be in a strong position for much offense. UAB doesn’t shoot much from downtown, so expect this game to go under the total — as most Mean Green games have.

The market has not quite caught up, so there’s still plenty of value in these unders.

Pick: Under 124 (Under 121)

This is now 43 (UAB) vs. 47 (North Texas) going into the game tonight. Holy cow. 

Sagrin has UAB at 46 and us at 77. Usually the more accurate ratings. Still should be a good game.
