WKU Hilltoppers (1-2) vs Marshall Thundering Herd (2-0)
Saturday, October 10, 2020 at 7:30 pm
At 7:30 pm, our selection is on the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers + the points over Marshall. Three weeks ago, we played on Marshall as a home underdog vs. Appalachian State, and were rewarded with a 17-7 upset victory. The Thundering Herd didn't play either of the last two weekends, but are back in action tonight, at Western Kentucky. The Hilltoppers finally got into the win column last Saturday with a three-point win at Middle Tennessee, though they failed to cover the 7-point spread. For the season, WKU is 0-3 ATS. But we'll take the points with the Hilltoppers tonight, as home underdogs (or PK) off an ATS loss have covered the spread 83% of the time over the last 41 years vs. undefeated conference foes off an upset win. Moreover, Marshall is 22-38 ATS as a road favorite, including 0-6 ATS off an upset win. Take Western Kentucky. Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.
