Western Kentucky Hilltoppers vs Florida Atlantic Owls. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers. Western Kentucky did not have much luck on the road this year, but the Hilltoppers faced some formidable opponents (Memphis, Kentucky, Louisiana Tech).

 

The Owls are solid at home and have a terrific offense, but they have some defensive questions and did not play the toughest schedule in the country, coming into this match rated 243rd in the strength of schedule.

 

Western Kentucky is the superior team in my opinion, and I anticipate the Hilltoppers offense to be successful in this one, so I’m taking them to cover this tiny road spread. The Western Kentucky Hilltoppers will win to a predicted score of 75-73.
