The Bellarmine Knights are coming off their best showing of the season with a win over Bowling Green, and they've shown flashes on the offensive end through 4 games. The Morehead State Eagles have had serious issues offensively whenever playing a team worth mentioning, and the outside shot just isn't falling. Morehead State scored a combined 108 points against Penn State and Purdue. While the season is still young, it's fair to say the Bellarmine Knights are the better side. We're not being asked to lay anything crazy. Give me Bellarmine and the reasonable line.
