Nebraska Omaha @ North Texas
Current Records: Nebraska Omaha 3-5; North Texas 5-2
What to Know
The North Texas Mean Green will take on the Nebraska Omaha Mavericks at 6 p.m. ET Saturday at home. Neither of those teams managed to put together many points in their previous contests, so their meeting could be a low-scoring affair.
North Texas was close but no cigar on Sunday as they fell 55-51 to the UNC-Wilmington Seahawks. The Mean Green didn't live up to their potential and found themselves falling short of the 9-point advantage oddsmakers thought they had coming into the game.
Meanwhile, the oddsmakers predicted a rough contest for Nebraska Omaha on Monday, and boy were they were right. They ended up on the wrong side of a painful 74-54 walloping at the Mississippi State Bulldogs' hands.
This next matchup looks promising for North Texas, who are favored by a full 17.5 points. Those burned by picking them against the spread on Sunday might want to keep in mind that the squad has not yet dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.
North Texas is now 5-2 while Nebraska Omaha sits at 3-5. The Mean Green don't typically stay down for long -- they're 1-0 after losses this season -- so the Mavericks (2-2 after losses) won't have an easy go of it.
