5 Star - Should be a lock to happen

Spread: West Virginia -15.5

1-star play on Eastern Kentucky covering: The Colonels have a fairly deep bench for a low-major school with ten players averaging over ten minutes per game. This won't be an instance where West Virginia can just wear them down. I had this number at 14.5, so I don't have a strong play on it but my number would suggest taking EKU here.

Over/Under: 151.5

1-star play on the over: Eastern Kentucky has been putting up a lot of points. They're averaging 85 points per game but they haven't faced any challenging competition. This will be the most active defense EKU has faced this season by far. They won't be scoring it at a high clip in this one. Lean under. 

My picks

ATS record: 3-2 (60%)

O/U record: 3-2 (60%)
