Murray State is a 19.5-point favorite and the total is set at 130.5. I understand that Murray State is perfect in conference play and should have no real issues winning this game, but 19.5 is a lot to lay when this matchup has been a rather strong rivalry in recent years. Austin Peay is playing its best basketball and I think the Govs can keep this game respectable, even on the road.
