UL Monroe Warhawks vs Texas Longhorns

Where: Frank Irwin Center, Austin, Texas

When: Monday, November 12, 2018  8:00 pm Eastern

The UL Monroe Warhawks travel to Austin, Texas to take on the Texas Longhorns. The Warhawks are off to a 2-0 start with their most recent being a 94-53 win against Millsaps College. Texas is also 2-0 and their most recent win was a 73-71 overtime victory over Arkansas.

The Warhawks Are off to a 2-0 Start!

Four Warhawks players scored in double figures and the Warhawks walked out of Fant-Ewing Coliseum with their second straight win of the season. Senior forward Travis Munnings scored 23 points and snagged 11 rebounds to pace the Warhawks in their lopsided 94-53 defeat over Millsaps. Sophomore guard Michael Ertel scored 16 points and dished four assists and junior forward Andre Washington and senior guard Daishon Smith each scored 10 points for the Warhawks.

We’re just two games into the season but the Warhawks are averaging 84.5 points per game on 48 percent shooting from the field, 42 percent from beyond the arc and 71 percent from the charity stripe. The Warhawks average 13 turnovers per game and 29 assists per game. UL Monroe allows 59 points per game so far this season. Teams are shooting 51 percent from the floor and 26 percent from behind the three-point line.

Texas Wins the Armed Forces Classic!

Last season, Texas was 8-9 in games decided in the final minute or overtime. Senior guard Kerwin Roach knocked down a couple of triples to send the game into overtime and the Longhorns hung on to defeat the Razorbacks 73-71. Roach finished the game with 18 points and 11 rebounds, the Longhorn bench outscored Arkansas’ bench 25 points to four and the Longhorns escaped with the victory.

Texas scored 72 points per game and shoots 39 percent from the floor, 32 percent from three and 64 percent from the free throw line. Texas commits 15 turnovers per game and average 15 assists per contest. The Longhorns allow 65 points per game and teams shoot 43 percent from the floor and 31 percent from behind the three-point line.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

There isn’t a line available but I think it’s safe to say the edge has to go with Texas. I suspect the line will be somewhere around ten points and if it is ten points or less, I have to go with Texas solely based on their strength of schedule and them being at home. I’m not impressed with the Longhorn defense but I think they should be able to cover anything under ten points. Anything over and we must at least consider that the Warhawks are good enough to not get blown out by Texas.

Prediction: Texas

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

I suspect the total will be somewhere between 140 points and 150 points. If the total is in that range then I will play the over because I think this is going to be one of those “look what I can do” games full of showboating, dunking and plenty of buckets scored. If the total is over 150 then I will most likely go with the under as I don’t believe these two teams are good enough to put up 80 against each other.

Prediction: Over
