This is a free play (1*) on CHARLOTTE
Western Kentucky probably shouldn’t be laying this many points to anyone. While 4-2 and winners of three in a row, the Hilltoppers have won just one game by more than 7 points. They also haven’t scored more than 21 points in any game against an FBS opponent. They are off a 17-8 upset of Army, which was their second upset in the last three weeks.
But we just can’t bring ourselves to trust this team in the chalk role. They are just 3-11-1 ATS the last 15 games as a favorite, which includes a losing straight up record (eight outright defeats) as well! They are just just 2-7 SU and 1-8 ATS their last nine times laying between 3.5 and 10 points!
Charlotte won’t be intimidated here. They’ve already faced Appalachian State and Clemson, two of the 12 remaining unbeaten teams in College Football. Defensively there are some issues for the 49ers, but those shouldn’t be as prevalent against WKU’s low-scoring attack.
Last season the 49ers beat WKU 40-14 as a nine-point home underdog! Certainly they can at least stay within a similar point spread this time around?
