Shane’s Free Pick

These are both elite offensive teams and there is going to be no shortage of scoring in this game Southern Indiana’s defense has been a major problem all season. I do expect their offense is going to be good though, and that will be the difference as this game goes well over the total. Back the over to cash here.
