As of Monday afternoon, the public betting for this contest is behind North Texas. The Mean Green are getting 55 percent of the wagers as an underdog against San Francisco.


Neither team has any new players listed on the injury report for tonight’s game.


North Texas has picked up wins over South Dakota, Mercer and Jacksonville State on its way to the championship series. The Mean Green have covered the spread in all three wins, being the underdog in two of them. North Texas is 18-11 against the spread this season and 12-5 ATS away from home. The Mean Green average 72.8 points per game on offense while allowing 71.5 per game.

San Francisco has gotten past Colgate, Utah Valley and Campbell. The Dons are just 1-2 against the spread in this tournament, with all three being played on its home court. San Francisco is just 12-20 against the spread for the season and only 5-12 ATS at home. The Dons are putting up 68.7 per game on offense while allowing 68.8 per contest.

The trends are too strong for North Texas to ignore. The Mean Green have already shown an ability to cover as an underdog and on the road in this tournament. San Francisco hasn’t been good at covering at home all season and I think they will have trouble against this North Texas squad.
