The University of Alabama Birmingham Blazers had a record of 21-7 straight up and 11-4 in CUSA while going 16-10-1 against the spread. Despite the solid regular season numbers the Blazers are facing a must win CUSA tournament as they lack a true signature win on their overall resume this year.
Texas El Paso and Tulsa are in the same boat as they each finished 10-5 in CUSA action. UTEP was 22-8 straight up overall and has a strong bet on March Madness tradition as a program. Coach Tim Floyd has had success wherever he has gone and it also helps that the CUSA tournament is on their home floor. Tulsa was 17-12.
Memphis had a record of 21-9 straight up but struggled in CUSA action as they went 9-6. The Tigers were one of the worst board values in CUSA with a mark of just 9 payouts in 27 games. Memphis was clearly overrated in the preseason and yet to this day they still get mentioned as the one team that could possibly get an at large bid from the Big West.
Southern Miss continues to make strides and was 21-8 straight up while going 9-6 in league games. The Golden Eagles are 11-9-2 against the spread and a team that could be a surprise March Madness bet bargain on the board.
