Western Kentucky Betting Preview

Western Kentucky sits with an 11-10 record overall and they have gone 6-12-1 against the spread. In the last game against FIU the defense was awful giving up 78 points and that led to the nine-point defeat. Two games ago against Charlotte, they were competitive but they were defeated 75-71.

FAU Betting Preview

On the other side of this matchup is FAU who sits with a 20-1 record and they have gone 15-3-1 against the spread. In the last game against Middle Tennessee, Florida Atlantic scored 85 points and that was enough for the blowout victory. FAU is averaging 77.8 points while their defense is giving up 63.6 points per game. The offense is ranked 52nd while the defense is ranked 39th. Johnell Davis has been the top player for FAU averaging 13.4 points while shooting 50.6 percent from the field and 44.4 percent from behind the three-point line. The last time these two teams faced off the defense gave up only 62 points and I would expect their defense is going to need to be a strength again in this game. 

Western Kentucky vs FAU Trends

Western Kentucky is 0-4 against the spread in their last four games. The over is 4-0 in the Owls last four home games. The under is 9-2 in the HIlltoppers' last 11 games played on Saturday. 

Shane’s Free Pick

Western Kentucky has struggled to cover spreads heading into this game and it’s going to be no different in this game. The Hilltoppers' defense gave up 78 points in the last game and they are going to really struggle to defend again in this game. FAU is going to get the job done with ease. Back Florida Atlantic against the spread.
