UTEP Miners vs. Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders

NCAAB Basketball: Saturday, January 19th 2019 6:00 PM EST TIME

The UTEP Miners are looking to get their first road win of the season as they head into Middle Tennessee to take on the Blue Raiders. As for the Raiders they have not been the best team to cover at home this season.

Another Dreadful Finish

The UTEP Miners once again let a halftime lead fall apart in their most recent game as they had another win stolen from them. The UAB Blazers would blow out the UTEP Miners in the second half of the game as they came away with an impressive 76-63 victory on Thursday night. Now on the short rest, the Miners will have to figure out how they can hold these impressive leads. The halftime lead was led by Evan Gilyard who scored 21 of his 25 points in the first half, giving UTEP a halftime lead with three points, but as stated above they could not get it done. Could it happen again on Saturday?

The Miners come into this game with holding a 6-10 overall record as they currently hold a 1-4 record in conference play. The Miners have been known for giving away leads this season as the UAB team had a 14-0 and 16-5 runs in the second half of the game. The Miners have not been successful on the road either as they have yet to win a game away from UTEP.

Upset City

Watch out for these Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders, they can win some big games. Those big games including their last win as they were able to take down the UTSA Roadrunners. It was an impressive and historic win for the Blue Raiders as they were able to get their first conference victory of the season and head coach Nick McDevitt got his first victory against the Roadrunners as well. The Blue Raiders were able to slow down the C-USA-leading UTSA as they snapped a 13 game losing streak in conference play. The Roadrunners went into the night the hottest team in the league, winners of seven in a row, but somehow in someway the Raiders got the upset win.

It was one of the best performances in school history as the Blue Raiders were making shots left and right. The Raiders would finish the first half 15-of-29 from the floor and 10-of-20 from 3-point range. With this recent performance, would it be wise to stay with MT and roll the dice once again or lean towards a Miners team that has yet to win on the road?

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

I mean there is no way you can back a Miners team that has yet to win a road game and will be taking on a Raiders team that took down the top team in the conference and are hosting the game. More fans will be there to support as the Raiders make it two wins in a row.

Prediction: MT BLUE RAIDERS

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Even though MT got off to a fast start in their last game, I do expect this game to slow down quite a lot. The Miners and Raiders will not be needed to trade shots back and forth as the pace will decrease by a lot. The Under is 4-0 in Miners last 4 games vs. a team with a winning % below .400 as well as 11-1 in Miners last 12 Saturday games.

Prediction: UNDER
