Arkansas-Pine Bluff is 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a loss and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600. Texas is 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 games following a SU loss and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS loss while the over is 8-1 in their last 9 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400.
This is a huge number to be laying with Texas and UAPB has had mixed results in these big number spots this season. With that said, I think this is a low total given who’s involved, as Texas can easily put up 80+ and the Golden Lions are more than capable of scoring 50+, so give me the over here.
