4. WKU at UAB
LINE: UAB -13.5
ATS PICK: WKU
– Bet on this, BetMGM latest line
WKU has been one of the biggest disappointments of the 2020 season.
Coming of a great strong first season and a thrilling finish under head coach Tyson Helton, the Hilltoppers are 1-3 with the lone win coming against a miserable Middle Tennessee team 20-17.
The offense continues to be a polite rumor, failing to get past 24 points so far while averaging fewer than 300 yards per game.
But the 13.5 is a bit too much.
The line is a bit overinflated after the 38-14 loss to a great Marshall team – WKU’s second loss by 14 or more in the first four games – and losing to Liberty wasn’t exactly confidence inspiring.
Meanwhile, UAB is 3-1, is still a strong favorite to at least get to the Conference USA championship – this might be the toughest remaining conference game – and only lost to Miami. However …
Central Arkansas, South Alabama, UTSA. UAB is going UAB – it’s building up a big record against teams like Central Arkansas, South Alabama, and UTSA.
It’s the 13.5 that’s a problem here. UAB should win this against a WKU team that will put up its customary 17-to-24 points, but will do enough defensively to keep this from getting out of hand.
