UCF Knights vs SMU Mustangs 1/2/2022 Picks Predictions Previews


The UCF Knights of the American Athletic Conference will go against the SMU Mustangs of the American Athletic Conference in NCAAB action in Moody Coliseum Dallas, TX, on Sunday, January 2, 2022, at 2:00 PM (EST).


UCF will need to recall their prior match quickly. It wasn’t a poor performance; in fact, it was rather good. They upset Michigan, a Big 10 powerhouse, 85-71.


The Knights, on the other hand, should not brag about their victory and instead concentrate on a very tough 10-3 SMU club that is yet to lose in the Moody Coliseum this season. The Knights had to reach down and come from behind many times against Michigan.


Many people would assume they just raced away with the match because they won by 14, but they were down by as much as 12 at one point in the second half. The Knights shot 51.8 percent from the field as a team, including 12-20 from beyond the arc. They were only able to keep Michigan to 39.7%.


Darin Green Jr was relentless, scoring 27 points on 7-9 shooting from beyond the arc. Brandon Mahan, a senior guard, set a career-high with 26 points, including 5 three-pointers on just 7 tries. To stay up with the Mustangs on Sunday, they’ll have to score at a high level.


  • The total went OVER in 4 of Central Florida’s last 6 matches.
  • The Knights are 4-10 SU in their last 14 matches against Southern Methodist.
  • Central Florida is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 matches in the American Athletic Conference.

UCF Knights vs SMU Mustangs Predictions 1/2/2022


When UCF visits SMU on Sunday, the Mustangs will be hoping to keep their home record intact. This will be their most difficult home match in the early portion of the season. They must be aware of UCF’s propensity to force turnovers and be forceful with the ball while on a quick pace.


The Mustangs defeated Tulsa 74-69 on the road in the latest victory in their current 7-game winning run. Despite enabling Tulsa to shoot better from the field, the Mustangs were able to go to the foul line and score.


To Tulsa’s 5, they went to the charity stripe 24 times. These foul throws proved to be the game-winner in a tight 5-point contest. Kendric Davis scored a game-high 26 points on 8-16 shooting from the field. In the triumph, Emmanuel Bandoumel and Marcus Weathers collaborated for 23 points.


  • The Southern Methodist University Mustangs are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of the Mustangs’ last 5 matches against Central Florida.
  • Southern Methodist is 3-8 ATS in their last 11 matches in the AAC.

UCF Knights vs SMU Mustangs. The NCAAB pick for this game is the UCF Knights. UCF won and covered on the road in seven of their previous eight visits. They can play in any style, but like to play at a quick tempo, which SMU will allow them to accomplish.


With their pressure defense, I envision them forcing SMU to turn the ball over and scoring on several 2nd chance drives. On Sunday, UCF’s winning run will be extended, while SMU’s will be broken. The UCF Knights will win to a predicted score of 78-71.
