Memphis vs. North Texas Prediction

I’m on Memphis here. I just can’t get behind North Texas in their current form and while Memphis has had their fair share of ups and downs this season, but right now they’re playing the better basketball and I feel that they’re the more talented team in this matchup. Memphis can also ill afford another questionable loss if they want to maintain their resume for the NCAA tournament in the event they don’t win the AAC tournament. I’ll side with Memphis to get the road win and cover here.
