The UTSA Roadrunners and the Old Dominion Monarchs meet in college basketball action from Ted Constant Convocation Center on Wednesday. 

UT San Antonio enters this one at 13-16 so far. In the last four games, UTSA is 2-2, with losses to Western Kentucky and Florida Atlantic between wins over UAB and Marshall in that time. 

In the win over the Blazers, UTSA’s leading scorer was Jhivvan Jackson with 28 points, five rebounds and two assists. Keaton Wallace added 18 points with nine rebounds and five assists as the only other UT San Antonio player in double-digits there as well. 

Over on the Old Dominion side, they’re 12-17 on the year. ODU is 3-2 in their last five games, losing to North Texas and Marshall while falling to UTEP, Rice and Florida Atlantic otherwise. 

In the win over Florida Atlantic, Old Dominion’s top scorer was Malik Curry with 29 points, six assists and three rebounds. Xavier Green added 22 points, four rebounds and four assists in that one, and Joe Reece had 12 points, five rebounds and five assists. 

Old Dominion is 1-3-1 ATS in their last five Wednesday games and 5-2 ATS in their last seven versus a team with a losing straight-up record. The over is 5-2 in Old Dominion’s last seven overall and the under is 6-2 in their last eight Wednesday games. 

Meanwhile, UT San Antonio is 5-2 ATS in their last seven Wednesday games and 6-15 ATS in their last 21 road games. UTSA is 0-4 ATS in their last four after a straight-up win and 0-4 ATS in their last four after an ATS win. 

UTSA has scored pretty well in their last four losses. In each of those, they’ve been at 71 or more points, and were above 80 in two of them. The issues there were big points totals given up on the other side, so holding UAB to 59 points in their last outing was a good step in the right direction. 

Old Dominion has had a couple of lame outings themselves, totaling just 113 points in their last two losses combined. That said, the Monarchs are normally a pretty solid offensive team this year, so Old Dominion is probably a safer pick here.
