Southern Mississippi hosts the University of Alabama- Birmingham Saturday in Conference USA action. Southern Miss comes in with a record of 9-7 overall; and 1-3 in the conference, while UAB is 10-6 and 2-1 in the conference. Southern Miss is desperately in need of a win to keep pace. The Golden Eagles have been very good at home this year. Can they turn back the Blazers?

UAB drops first conference game

UAB had been rolling along with wins in its first two conference games, but they hit a roadblock when they lost at Louisiana Tech on Thursday 63-54. UAB shot just 32 percent from the field and 32 percent from three. They also turned the ball over 13 times and only had 8 assists. Jalen Perry had 13 points and 9 rebounds while Zack Bryant had 10 points. UAB got off to a bad start, making only 2 of their first 17 shots and could never recover.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

This game features two strong defensive teams that know each other well. Southern Mississippi has been very good at home, going 5-1 on the season, while UAB is 1-2 on the road. This will be a game that’s decided in the final minute. While the Golden Eagles may prevail at home, it won’t be by much. I like the Blazers to cover the spread here. Take UAB getting the points.

Prediction: UAB +4

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

UAB averages 70 points a game and allows opponents to score 66 points against them. Southern Miss averages 71 points per game and allows teams to score about 63 against them on average. The over/under here is pretty low, despite the fact that these are two good defensive teams. The over is 7-1 in Golden Eagles last 8 vs. a team with a winning straight up record and 11-4 in Golden Eagles last 15 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of less than .400. Plus, the over is 5-0 in Blazers last 5 vs. a team with a winning straight up record and 8-2 in the last 10 meetings between these two. Take the over.

Prediction: Over
