What to Know
The Louisiana Tech Bulldogs haven't won a matchup against the UAB Blazers since Feb. 13 of 2021, but they'll be looking to end the drought Thursday. Louisiana Tech and UAB will face off in a Conference USA battle at 9 p.m. ET at Bartow Arena. Neither of those teams managed to put together many points in their previous contests, so their meeting could be a low-scoring affair.
The Bulldogs ended up a good deal behind the Middle Tenn. Blue Raiders when they played on Saturday, losing 68-51.
Meanwhile, UAB lost to the North Texas Mean Green at home by a decisive 63-52 margin.
Louisiana Tech is expected to lose this next one by 8.5. However, those who like betting on the underdog should be happy to hear that they are 4-2 against the spread when expected to lose.
Both teams will surely be fighting tooth and nail to get back into the win column after losses this week. The teams are out to make things right after dropping matches they were expected to win, so stay tuned to see which squad bounces back.
