The UTSA Roadrunners and the FAU Owls meet in college basketball action from the Baldwin Arena on Thursday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
FAU is listed as a 18.5-point home favorite with the total for this game set at 147.5 points.
For UTSA, Carlton Linguard Jr. is out for the season due to academic violations while FAU has a clean injury report coming into this game.
FAU’s 83-64 win over UTSA back on January 19th, 2023, made it back-to-back wins for FAU in this head-to-head matchup.
UTSA is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS win and 10-4-2 ATS in their last 16 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 games overall. FAU is 17-7-2 ATS in their last 26 home games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall while the over is 3-1-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a losing record.
I’m leaning towards the over here. I think FAU will be able to get a lot going on the offensive end, and I just don’t trust UTSA to be able to slow the Owls down. On the other end, UTSA’s been picking up the scoring in recent games and I think this is a spot where we can back the over with some level of confidence.
