(777) North Texas vs. Western Kentucky (778)
PICK: caesars @ 3.5 UNT (-110)
DATE: March 14, 2019 - 9:30 PM
STAR RATING: 10.0
EXPERT: Ben Burns
EVALUATION: Loss (-1100) - Final Score UNT 51 at WKU 67
I'm playing on NORTH TEXAS. I won with UNT yesterday and am coming right back with them. Here's an excerpt from yesterday's writeup, which I've included as it applies here: "...The Panthers took both regular season meetings and check in as the higher seed. Expect the Mean Green to win when it counts most. North Texas has a lineup of seniors who aren't yet ready to see their collegiate careers come to an end. Gibson, Miller, Simmons and Duffy, all seniors, score nearly 60% of UNT's points. However, its on the defensive side of the ball where the Mean Green really have an edge. North Texas allows 63 ppg while the Panthers allow 80 ppg. Needless to say, thats a huge difference. While the Panthers may be considered the home team, this game is being played in Frisco Texas, providing a significant edge to North Texas .The Mean Green are 5-2 ATS their last seven tournament games. Expect them to come through with a big win and to improve on those stats this evening." I like the fact that North Texas played yesterday while Western Kentucky hasn't played in a week. The last two meetings were close - WKU won by three this season and in OT last season. Once again, expect the Mean Green seniors to come through when it counts.
