What to Know

The Utah Valley Wolverines are 3-1 against the Tarleton State Texans since January of 2021, and they'll have a chance to extend that success Thursday. The Wolverines and Tarleton State will face off in a WAC battle at 8 p.m. ET at Wisdom Gymnasium. Utah Valley won both of their matches against Tarleton State last season (77-55 and 69-56) and is aiming for the same result this time around.

The Seattle Redhawks typically have all the answers at home, but on Saturday Utah Valley proved too difficult a challenge. Utah Valley beat the Redhawks 67-58.

Meanwhile, the Texans were within striking distance but couldn't close the gap on Saturday as they fell 64-59 to the Sam Houston Bearkats.

Barring any buzzer beaters, the Wolverines are expected to win a tight contest. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a four-game streak of ATS wins.

Utah Valley's victory lifted them to 21-6 while Tarleton State's loss dropped them down to 14-14. We'll see if Utah Valley can repeat their recent success or if Tarleton State bounces back and reverse their fortune.
