La. Tech is 5-11 against the spread following a win, 1-4 against the spread in their last five games, and 2-8 against the spread against Conference USA. UTSA is 5-12 against the spread in their last 17 games, 2-5 against the spread in their last seven road games, and 1-5 against the spread on the road against a team with a winning home record. The rad team has covered the point spread in the last four meetings of these two.
This is such a tough one because La. Tech is so much the better team but also a horrific team against the spread but I will take my chances with them to get it done at home.
