UT Arlington Mavericks (7-1; 4-3 ATS: 4-3 O/U) vs. Northern Iowa Panthers (6-2; 3-2 ATS; 2-3 O/U)

The red-hot UT Arlington Mavericks will head on the road to clash with the Northern Iowa Panthers Thursday evening from the McLeod Center in Cedar Falls, IA. The Mavericks recorded a 65-60 home win over the North Texas in their latest battle, and the Panthers are coming off a 77-68 OT win over over UNLV. There is no previous meeting between these two schools.

UT Arlington Defeats North Texas in Fifth Straight Win

The UT Arlington Mavericks continued their winning ways with a 65-60 home win over North Texas this past weekend. The Mavericks only shot 38% from the field, however, they were able to limit North Texas to a 37% clip. Mavericks’ leading scorer Kevin Hervey was outstanding, collecting 23 points along with eight rebounds. The 6-foot-9 senior forward is red hot, scoring at least 23 points in three consecutive games, and is now up to 23.4 points on 50% shooting, and is averaging 8.4 rebounds per game. Erick Neal also came up big in the win over North Texas, notching 20 points along with five boards. The senior guard is only shooting 38% on the season and is third in team scoring with 13.6 points. Johnny Hamilton is having a tremendous season, sporting a 74% field goal percentage and is posting 14.5 points per game.

The Mavericks are looking very strong right now, currently riding a five-game winning streak behind dazzling defensive play, and their lone blemish this season was a narrow 77-76 defeat to 25th ranked Alabama. They are currently ranked 80th in the Country in Ken Pomeroy’s College Basketball Rankings. UT Arlington is scoring an average of 80.1 points per game, ranking them 90th overall. They are allowing an average of 68.6 points, placing them 111th overall.

Panthers Outlast UNLV in Overtime

The Northern Iowa Panthers enter this contest full of confidence after notching an exciting 77-68 overtime win over UNLV in their MWC/Missouri Valley Challenge last week. The Panthers only shot 40.9% in the defensive battle while UNLV  posted a 41.9% clip from the field. Panthers’ top scorer Bennett Koch put on a spectacular performance in that one, sinking 30 points on 10 for 19 shooting and had seven rebounds. The 6-foot-10 senior guard is on a 20 for 33 stretch from the field in his last three games and is now averaging 17 points and 7.9 rebounds. Tywhon Pickford had a rough night offensively against UNLV, going 1 for 8 from the field for a total of five points, however, he did pick up 12 rebounds. The freshman guard is a rebounding machine, averaging 11.1 rebounds along with 10.1 points per game.

The Panthers are off to a terrific start to the season, winning six of their first eight games, and their two losses came to ninth-ranked North Carolina, and fifth-ranked Villanova. They are currently placed at 86th overall in Ken Pomeroy’s College Basketball Rankings. Northern Iowa is posting 68.5 points per game, ranking them 292nd overall. They are playing tremendous defense, holding opponents to an average of only 58.5 points, good for fourth in the Country.

Trends:

The UT Arlington Mavericks are:

  • 8-0 ATS in their last 8 games following an ATS loss.
  • 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games.
  • 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games against a team with a winning percentage above .600.

The Northern Iowa Panthers are:

  • 4-13 ATS in their last 17 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600.
  • 7-15 ATS in their last 22 games against a team with a straight up winning record.

I am taking the points with UT Arlington in this contest. UT Arlington is a talented team on both sides of the court. They are shooting just under 49% on the season and also rebound well with two players averaging over eight boards per game. Furthermore, Northern Iowa is a low-scoring team and the Mavericks are limiting opponents to 38% shooting, so they should contain the Panthers offense. I don’t see Northern Iowa scoring enough points to cover this spread, and UT Arlington is strong enough offensively to do some damage.
