The UT-Arlington Mavericks and Georgia State Panthers meet Saturday in college basketball action at the GSU Sports Arena.

The UT-Arlington Mavericks look to build on their solid five-game winning streak. The UT-Arlington Mavericks are averaging 65.9 points on 39 percent shooting and allowing 70.1 points on 44.1 percent shooting. Edric Dennis is averaging 15.5 points and 4.5 rebounds while Brian Warren is averaging 13.4 points and 3.2 assists. David Azore is dishing 1.6 assists and Radshad Davis is grabbing 5.6 rebounds. The UT-Arlington Mavericks are shooting 26.5 percent from beyond the arc and 74.1 percent from the free throw line. The UT-Arlington Mavericks are allowing 29.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.7 rebounds per game. The UT-Arlington Mavericks have won four of their last five road games.

The Georgia State Panthers look for a victory after winning seven of their last nine games. The Georgia State Panthers are averaging 74.6 points on 45.9 percent shooting and allowing 73.2 points on 43.3 percent shooting. D'Marcus Simonds is averaging 19.7 points and 3.7 assists while Devin Mitchell is averaging 13.6 points and 1.5 rebounds. Malik Benlevi is the third double-digit scorer and Jeff Thomas is dishing 1.5 assists. The Georgia State Panthers are shooting 38.3 percent from beyond the arc and 62.8 percent from the free throw line. The Georgia State Panthers are allowing 33.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 29.8 rebounds per game. The Georgia State Panthers have won five of their last six home games.

The Mavericks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games, 5-0 ATS in their last 5 vs. Sun Belt and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Panthers are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games following a ATS loss, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 vs. Sun Belt and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Mavericks are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Georgia St. The under is 8-3 in Panthers last 11 home games. The under is 19-7 in Mavericks last 26 overall.

The UT-Arlington Mavericks and Georgia State Panthers have had a lot of close games over the years, which includes a high contest a couple of weeks ago, despite GSU getting the best of it on the road. UT-Arlington has had a lot of success on the road recently and is averaging a win by 7.2 points during its five-game winning streak. The Georgia State Panthers are also a hot basketball team, but they're just 2-5 ATS at home and 4-9 ATS this season as a favorite. The UT-Arlington Mavericks are playing their best ball of the season right now and have been rather kind ATS during this stretch. Give me the points. 

Pick:
Texas-Arlington +8
