#870 LA TECH (-1) over UAB at 7:30 PM EST
Off the frustrating two-point loss at North Texas, Louisiana Tech will head back to the Thomas Assembly Center in Ruston and knock off CUSA West leader UAB. The Blazers check into this battle on a blistering 6-0 SU and 5-1 ATS run but this will prove to be a massive challenge for head coach Andy Kennedy and his men.

In the last three meetings between these two conference foes, the Bulldogs have been in control posting a perfect 3-0 SU and ATS record. Equally impressive, at home since February of 2012, Louisiana Tech has gone on a tear notching an amazing 131-12 SU and 62-39 ATS record including a profitable 76-4 SU and 41-17 ATS in this spot if head coach Eric Konkol’s boys are running with four or more days of rest. With those two parameters working and the ‘Dogs battling a foe that arrives with confidence off a straight up win, this team trend jumps to a magnificent 37-3 SU and 27-9 ATS including a nearly perfect 17-2 SU and 14-1 ATS if they are priced as an underdog or a favorite of -6.5 or less.

This is the ideal spot to fade UAB too. When checking in off back-to-back SU and ATS wins, the Blazers have really struggled posting a weak 45-62-3 ATS record in their next game. In this setting hitting the hardwood off a blowout victory of 10 points or more, Coach Kennedy’s kids fall to a miserable 19-48-1 ATS including a shocking 4-25-1 ATS if they are priced competitively between -5.5 and +5.5. With those three parameters live and UAB fighting on the road, the Blazers fall to a nasty 1-10 SU and 0-11 ATS.

After playing five of their last six on the road, the Bulldogs will be elated to be back inside their own gym. The home versus road dichotomy will prove to be the difference in this matchup too. Take Louisiana Tech. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
