Old Dominion Monarchs at Texas-San Antonio Road Runners Overview

Old Dominion Monarchs

The Monarchs enter in stellar form as they have won their last six games in a row. Overall, ODU is 9-1 SU in their previous ten outings. Their one loss? That defeat suffered at the hands of the Road Runners on January 26th. ODU was last in action in five days ago when they hosted the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers and failed to produce a cover as a five-point favorite when they won 67-63.

Texas-San Antonio Road Runners

The Road Runners come into this game on the heels of a two-game losing streak capped off most recently by a 72-67 loss at Louisiana Tech twelve days ago. The Road Runners failed to come in under the number as they were priced as a 4.5-point underdog at the tip. UTSA is 0-2 ATS in their previous two outings.

Reasons To Avoid Old Dominion

Despite their display of excellence, the market is still reluctant to believe Old Dominion will win this game even if they have a far better record and overall compelling body of work. The loss on the road at the Road Runners was not written off as a one-off from a market perspective, and this is significant considering ODU has been dubbed by some as a viable contender to represent the conference at the Men's Basketball Tournament.

Reasons To Back Texas-San Antonio

In addition to the emotional intangible they will yield against Old Dominion, the Road Runners have had an extra week to ready for this game which means they will be the better rested and more prepared. UTSA will turn to their offense which has averaged 88 points per game in their last five matches to get the job done. This is a number that is 19 points greater than ODU's 69 points per contest over their last five games.

Old Dominion at Texas-San Antonio Prediction 02/28/2019

The Road Runners will utilize their strong home court presence (10-3 SU at home this season) to get another win against the Monarchs. Chances are UTSA will win this one more convincingly this time around, but it doesn't matter at the end of the day because all we need is one basket to get the job done. We can trust UTSA well get the job done.
