4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: OVER
I think the answer to which teams defense will step up is none of them. Western Kentucky hasn’t scored under 44 points since September 24th.
Memphis hasn’t scored under 30 points since October 29th. I expect both of these teams to put a lot of points on the board. I expect WKU to win but I think the game could go either way.
