Louisiana Tech Bulldogs vs UTEP Miners prediction

The Louisiana Tech Bulldogs comfortably beat UTEP last month, and they're playing some of their best ball of the season right now. The UTEP Miners continue to have issues defensively, and that includes allowing a combined 186 points in their last 2 games. UTEP is also 8-14-1 ATS on the year, so they're not cashing tickets for bettors. Louisiana Tech has had some success on the road and that offense should have a field day against this UTEP slumping defense. I'll lay the points with the Bulldogs.
