Shane’s Free Pick

Clemson is the better team, but this is way too many points. Morehead State’s defense has actually been decent heading into this game, it’s been the offense that has been inconsistent. Look for Morehead State’s defense to step up and that will be enough for them to come away with a cover the spread. Back Morehead State against the spread.
