Old Dominion had a very good season in conference play this year and they have won three games in a row, including a two-point win against Texas State. Texas State has lost two of their last three games and has allowed at least 75 points in five straight games. Despite the differences in record, I think we are going to see a tight game here. I will take Texas State with the points.
