The FAU Owls and the UAB Blazers meet in college basketball action from the Bartow Arena on Thursday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
UAB is listed as a 1-point home favorite with a ML price of -115. The total for this game is 148.5 points.
FAU has a clean injury report for this game while UAB’s leading scorer Jordan Walker is questionable with a leg injury and Javian Davis is out indefinitely due to a suspension.
FAU’s 88-86 win back on January 5th, 2023, made it four straight wins for the home team in this head-to-head matchup while snapping UAB’s two-game head-to-head win streak.
FAU is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games against a team with a home winning percentage above .600 while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600. UAB is 1-11-1 ATS in their last 13 games following an ATS win and 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 home games against a team with a winning home record.
I’m sticking with the over here. I’d really like to know the status of UAB’s Jordan Walker before jumping into a side as I think his status is the difference here with this line being so close to a pick ‘em. That’s why I like the over. With or without Walker, points will be scored in this game, it’s just a matter of which side those points end up on. I think it’ll be a great game either way but I’m taking the over here.
