Free Sports Game Preview and Prediction: Florida Intl vs. Western Kentucky
Saturday, October 27, 2018 7:30 PM
Play: Total: 55.0/-105 Under
Western Kentucky avenging just 20.1 ppg in offence this season does not have the guns to compete with Florida International in a run and gun type affair, and will come into this game preparing to play a methodical conservative game. Add to that the Hilltoppers will be in a huge letdown situation that could see them start slowly after blowing a late lead last week to Old Dominion, and losing thanks to some bizarre circumstances that include penalties and failed FG attempts. Meanwhile, on the flip side FINT is a Doctor Jekyll and Hyde type of team averaging just 22.5 ppg on offence on the road this season as compared to their overall 35.9 ppg output . The Panthers have a history of playing a more conservative type of game as visitors that has resulted in a lot of lower scoring tilts. With that said, you have what I'm betting will be the makings for a low scoring sleeper. Note: FINT has gone UNDER 10 straight times as a road favourite with no combined score eclipsing the 55 point plateau with the average combined score clicking in a 43.8 ppg. FLA INTERNATIONAL is 7-0 UNDER L/7 after 3 consecutive games with a turnover margin of +1 or better. CFB Home teams where the total is between 49.5 and 56 (W KENTUCKY) - off an upset loss to a conference rival as a favorite, struggling team, winning 25% or less of their games on the season are 28-6 UNDER L/26 seasons for a 83% conversion rate for bettors on the blind.
