Randy’s Free Pick
The Texas-Arlington Mavericks are a bad team that's not getting any better and loses on the road by an average of 6.8 points. The Utah Valley Wolverines are 6-3 ATS at home, where they win by an average of 16.1 points. Thick line, but I don't have much trust in Texas-Arlington. It's the chalk or pass for me.
