UAB vs Memphis Betting Prediction

Both of these teams come into this game with 10 conference wins on the season and they are in the top half of the AAC standings. Memphis has won three games in a row and they are scoring 80 points per game this season. UAB has lost two of their last three games, including two bad home losses against Rice and Wichita State. Neither team is very strong on defense, as both are allowing about 75 points against per game, and I think we are going to see plenty of points in this one. Take the over here.
