Rice claims victory over UTSA at home.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Rice -2.5
Rice has been dreadful winning just 1 of their last 15 contests, but they do show up to play when facing UTSA as they’ve gone 5-1 ATS against them in their last six.
UTSA may have two wins on the season, but they haven’t been living up to Vegas expectations going 0-4-1 ATS in their five contests this season.
It is hard to back Rice in this spot considering their recent win history, but they come to play against UTSA and the money has shifted them to favorites despite majority of the public backing UTSA.
I’ll take the risk on Rice taking down UTSA at home.
