UT Arlington Mavericks
The Mavericks do not have a ton of basketball tradition but they are moving up in the world. I know the Sun Belt is not the SEC but still.
They have never had more wins in a season than they do right now so even though they are not in the Big Dance this season can definitely be a win for this group. It is all relative with this level of program.
UTA has some great numbers. They are 33rd in the nation at just under 80ppg and they are only giving up 69ppg. That kind of spread is pretty impressive.
This is a balanced team. They have 5 players averaging more than 9 and less than 13ppg . Unfortunately they have been missing their top scorer Kevin Hervey the last couple of months. They have been more than getting by though or else they wouldn’t be here.
I think NJIT is still the newest D1 team on the block. The program has a short history and they got respectable pretty quick.
The Higlanders are going to be happy to engage the Mavericks in a fast paced game. They average about 75ppg and are not exactly known for their defense. They have been averaging 81ppg to get to this point.
Damon Lynn is a local product. He is under six feet but that has not discouraged him from jacking up a ton of shots. He averages 18ppg despite not being efficient from field. He scored 31 in their win over BU.
NJIT is a small team. They have only two players on the roster over 6’6″ and neither contributes all that much. They want to play with flow and as long as they are not getting pushed around they should be in this one.
CBB Betting Trends:

Free UT Arlington Mavericks vs. NJIT Highlanders CBB Prediction:
I know these other postseason tourneys are not as exciting but I think you get a good effort in this one. The reality is that these teams really never had a shot at the Big Dance save a conference tournament triumph.
You should especially get a good effort from NJIT in this one. The fact that they are competing like this so soon into their program’s history is pretty impressive. They have a good shot too.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: UTA Mavericks -3
I know I was just pumping up NJIT but the Mavericks do look like the better team and they only have to win by a couple of possessions.
This one should be pretty close throughout. The Highlanders get the advantage of hosting this one so that has some value too.
