Incarnate Word vs. McNeese Prediction

I’m on McNeese here. This is a huge number, but McNeese is already the team to beat in this conference against a cellar dweller like Incarnate Word, but furthermore, the Cardinals are missing a handful of players after the post-game scuffle with Texas A&M Commerce. McNeese is a team you need to have your best weapons against at the best of times and being short-handed in a spot like this is not good. Give me McNeese in a blowout.

Chris’s Pick McNeese -21.5
