The over is 10-4-1 in Blue Raiders last 15 games on fieldturf. The over is 5-1 in Blazers last 6 conference games. The home team is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.

The Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders have had issues defensively, and they don’t run the ball well, which is an issue in the road underdog role. The UAB Blazers have been one of the better home teams over the years, and they’ve also been covering machines over the years. UAB will also be eager for a bounce back showing after how things played out against Rice. UAB puts cash in bettors pockets. I’ll lay the points.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
