BETTING STRATEGIES

UIC has picked up wins over St. Francis (84-61), Austin Peay (83-81) and Liberty (67-51) in its CIT Tournament run. The Flames have covered the spread in all three wins. UIC is 17-14 against the spread this season and 11-6 ATS on the road. When on the road, the Flames average 72.4 per game on offense while allowing 74.9 per contest. Dikembe Dixson has been leading the Flames with 14.2 points per game.

Northern Colorado has picked up wins over Drake (81-72), San Diego (86-75) and Sam Houston State (99-80) in its CIT Tournament run. The Bears have covered the spread in all three games and have covered in six straight games in total. Northern Colorado is now 23-10-1 against the spread overall and 9-4 ATS at home. The Bears are putting up 85.4 per game at home while allowing 75.5 per game on the road. Andre Spight is leading the team with 22.5 points, 4 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game.

The Flames have done some nice things on the road, but Northern Colorado is locked in and playing very well at home. The Bears can put up an offensive total that the Flames just can’t match. Northern Colorado ran over Sam Houston State and I think it will run over UIC tonight as well.
