On the other side of this matchup is the Western Kentucky HIlltoppers who sit with a 15-11 record overall and they have gone 11-12-1 against the spread. In the last game against Southern Miss, Western Kentucky put up 87 points, and that led to the easy victory. Western Kentucky is averaging 76.6 points while their defense is giving up 69.8 points per game. Dayvion McKnight has been the top player for Western Kentucky averaging 15.4 points while shooting 49 percent from the field and 31 percent from behind the three point line. In this game, Western Kentucky is going to want to try and push the pace, and make this game a shootout. 

Western Kentucky is 4-1 against the spread in their last five home games against a team with a losing road record. The over is 4-0 in Charlotte’s last four games overall. 

Western Kentucky’s defense was strong in the first game against Charlotte, but I think the 49ers will find more success scoring in this game. I still believe Western Kentucky is going to run up the score and this game is going to be a shootout. Back the over to cash.
