UTEP Miners vs Liberty Flames prediction

The UTEP Miners nearly upset Liberty when these teams clashed a month ago, so I did consider the boatload of points. However, UTEP is 1-9 SU on the road this season and 9-16-1 ATS. It's hard to get behind UTEP with those numbers looking you in the face. The Liberty Flames are 11-2 SU at home, and they've done a better job ATS with a 12-13 record. Thick line, but UTEP has issues on the road and doesn't defend all that well overall. The Liberty Flames should have a field day offensively and put on a show for the Liberty Arena. I'll lay the buckets with the Flames.
