North Texas Mean Green vs UAB Blazers prediction

This line has shifted a lot since the opener, and I’m going to follow the smoke by backing the UAB Blazers. The North Texas Mean Green continue to be hit or miss, and they’re not consistent offensively. UAB also beat North Texas a couple of weeks again overtime on the road. The UAB Blazers are 10-3 SU at home this season, and they’re 8-1-1 ATS in their last 10 games to become profitable on the season. UAB is getting hot at the right time and is a team to watch down the stretch in AAC play. I’ll lay the bucket with UAB.
