How To Bet On UAB Memphis – Memphis Looks To Complete Perfect Conference-USA Season Versus UAB Saturday

Posted by Washington Tucker on 3/7/2013 6:31:00 PM

The Memphis Tigers have managed to hang on to a spot in the national rankings with a perfect sports betting record through the first 15 games of their Conference USA schedule. That run includes a 69-53 blowout win over the UAB Blazers back in mid-January, and now they can complete a perfect season if they match that result in their season finale this Saturday. A close loss to Xavier is the only blemish on Memphis’ record since a mid-December loss versus Louisville, and there is no reason to think they can’t finish strong and finish what they started in the C-USA on Saturday.

College Basketball Sportsbook Line: Memphis – 16.5

That 16-point victory over UAB set the bar for this line, with the Tigers looking for nothing less than a repeat performance at home. Junior guard Joe Jackson and freshman forward Adonis Thomas aren’t done just yet, but this will be a special night for the several seniors that have helped them adjust to the college game this season.

The Blazers had their four-game win streak snapped in a loss to Central Florida earlier this week, falling to 0-5 against the top-three opponents in the conference this season. While they do have an overtime win over UTEP on their resume, UAB has struggled against the bigger programs in their conference, losing all but one of those five contests against the big-three by double digits. Rod Rucker and Jordan Swing have each averaged over 14 points per game for the Blazers this season, but Swing scored just three points on 1-for-6 shooting in the first meeting between these teams to negate the team-high 16 from Rucker.

That was no match for the five Tigers’ scorers that finish in double digits in that win, with Thomas scoring a game-high 19 and Jackson right behind him with 17. Shaq Goodwin and Tarik Black each had 10 points in the online betting win, and Memphis shot 49-percent from the field in the victory. The Tigers are at their best when they spread the ball around and get contributions from all over the floor, a big reason why they rank seventh in the nation with an average of 16.9 assists per game. Jackson has led the way in that department with an average of 4.8, and should be due for another big game.

College Basketball Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

UAB doesn’t have the weapons to keep up with the Grizzlies, but that isn’t exactly breaking news after they failed to keep up with them the first time around at home. Now the setting shifts to Memphis where Jackson and company haven’t lost a game since mid-December, and there is no reason to think the Grizzlies will hold back with a shot at sweeping their entire Conference-USA schedule in the balance.
