The Bulls are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games following a straight up loss and are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Mustangs are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. In their house, they should be able to win and cover this spread against the Bulls who can really disappear on the offensive end. I’ll lay the heavy wood with SMU in this one. The underdog is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings which explains why this spread is so large.
