Memphis has two recent back-to-back slip-ups on its resume, and that’s created a spot to potentially buy low on a talented team laying just four points here. UAB has played well this season as an underdog, going 4-1 ATS, creating one of the many intriguing NCAAB predictions for Sunday.

Memphis vs UAB Over/Under Pick: Over 158

While the recent stretch of games for both of these teams shows some life to the under, their high-upside offenses, paired with Memphis’ success on the road and UAB’s home over/under record sets this up for a high-scoring affair. Memphis averages 81.2 points per game while UAB checks in at 76.6 and both teams allow north of 74.7 points per game.

This game has the makings of a high-scoring one, and I think we see just that, so I’m grabbing an online bet on the over 158.

Memphis vs UAB ATS Pick: Memphis -4

Memphis dropped its last two games in tough fashion, falling by one point to USF and two points to Tulane. But I think we see the Tigers bounce back and right the ship after a stellar start to the season before that. Fueled by David Jones, the Tigers have the biggest difference maker in this matchup, and their talent on the offensive end is simply a group that has a much higher ceiling than UAB. That should make a difference on Sunday, making Memphis the best college basketball pick for the game.

Memphis vs UAB Moneyline Pick: Memphis (-190)

I’m not going to dive into the Memphis vs UAB moneyline by itself, as the Tigers are -190. But I will say that if you’re rolling out a few parlays, this isn’t a bad spot to tack them on with these odds, especially if you’re buying stock in the Blazers keeping this close. Memphis has been good on the road this year, though, and I’m happy to take the spread.

Questions of the Day

Who will be the leading scorer in Memphis vs UAB?


It’s tough not to like Memphis forward David Jones, who’s been a force this year averaging 21.7 points and 6.8 rebounds. He draws a far below-average defensive team in UAB and should feast.

Which player can be a game-changer to help UAB upset Memphis?


If UAB forward Yaxel Lendeborg can have a big game and help hold down the paint against Jones and a strong Memphis group, it’ll go a long way. He averages 11.5 points with 9.0 rebounds but also 2.1 blocks per game.
