Santa Barbara is the favorite in this one, with an expected 12-point margin of victory. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (2-0), so they might be worth a quick bet.
Santa Barbara's win brought them up to 3-1 while Texas-Arlington's loss pulled them down to 1-5. A pair of offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Gauchos come into the contest boasting the fourth highest field goal percentage in college basketball at 53.30%. Less enviably, the Mavericks are 34th worst in college basketball in points per game, with only 63.2 on average. So the cards are definitely stacked against Texas-Arlington.
