The Old Dominion Monarchs are obviously the better team here and is outscoring teams by 14.2 points at home this season. However, UTSA isn't playing shabby ball in its own right, winning five of its last six games and holding teams under 70 points during that stretch. ODU is also just 7-9 ATS this season when favored by at least five points. The Old Dominion Monarchs have also covered just three of their last 11 games overall. This seems like too many points to lay with two clubs playing good ball as of late. Give me the UT San Antonio Roadrunners and the points.
