Shane’s Free Pick

These are both offenses that have been inconsistent and I don’t really trust either of the offenses to find success here. The last time these two teams faced off, neither team scored more than 66 points. Look for both offenses to really struggle to get anything going, and that will be the difference here. Back the under to cash here. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
