Kansas City vs. Oral Roberts Prediction

I’m on Kansas City here. The Roos have been the hotter team here and Oral Roberts simply is not the same program they were as recently as last year. The Golden Eagles are back in the basement of the Summit and it’s going to be a while before they get back out I think. Kansas City has a lot more scoring depth in this matchup and I think the Roos get the win. Take the points to be safe, but I’m not sure we need them.
