The Seattle Redhawks University and Utah Valley Wolverines take to court tonight in the act of the Western Atlantic Conference at the UCCU Center.
The Redhawks are the second-placed team in the conference with an overall record of 21-7. However, they lost hard to New Mexico State with a score of 68-55 as a team that was underrated by 2.5 points. It was their second straight ATS loss, and the Redhawks are not ATS 5-2 in their last seven games.
Utah Valley also lost but won 3-2 in the last five games and was 2-1 ATS in the last game. As the weaker team at home, they also trailed 2-1 ATS for the year. This game looks like a better match than the odds suggest but let’s dig a little deeper before we make any final decisions.
Here are the odds for this WAC match, with the help of WynnBET Sportsbook.
Total: 154 (Above -110/Under -110)
While neither team has had much success, I think the Redhawks are playing a bit better; even in their losing efforts.
The Redhawks have 2 recent wins that are very impressive. They beat Lamar by 26 points with 16.5 favorites and Texas Pan-Am by 40 points with 6.5 favorites. Neither of these teams have a good record, but the Redhawks still have a total of 43 points after just two games. When they lose, the win rate isn’t too bad and the average is six of their last five losses.
All of this to say that this team is full of warriors who don’t give up late in losing situations. This is evidenced by their placing 69th in the second half at 38.7 PPG. Werewolves are 218th in that same metric. Seattle U are also the more resilient team, ranking in the top 25 for free throws and 39th for effective away goals.
I’ll take the laning team in this game to continue pushing after Werewolf drops throttle.
Pick: Seattle -6 (-110)
