Thursday College Hoops Plays

**Old Dominion -11 vs UTSA. UTSA has covered the spread in only 8 of their last 32 road games and that trend should continue in this match up. The only edge UTSA has over Old Dominion is in the free throw % department. Old Dominion did clear 80% in their last game (win) vs. Florida International, so there is a signal that the Monarchs are improving in that area. Statistically, it really is the only thing that may keep them from covering the 11 points here. All other numbers, especially several underlying stats at home as well as defense strength, signal full steam ahead on a double digit win for Old Dominion here. Lay it.

**North Texas -3 at Marshall. North Texas’ back court does a solid job protecting the ball with their home/road splits being strong in that department – a sign that their point guards are not sloppy with the ball. The Mean Green also hold a tasty 24-14 (63%) ATS record in conference games over the last 3 years. Compare that to Marshall’s 13-22 (39%) ATS conference record over the same time frame. North Texas’ defense is also strong, which doesn’t bode well for a Marshall offense that has been reeling during their 5 game losing streak.
