FIU vs Jacksonville State Betting Prediction

FIU is going to do a good job of keeping the pace up. FIU can score, but their defense has been awful at times and they are going to really struggle again here. Look for Jacksonville State to run up the score here, and that is going to be the difference here. Look for both teams to get close to 80 points, and that is going to be the difference here, as this game is going to go over the total.
