Middle Tennessee vs. Western Kentucky,
11/01/2012 21:15 EDT,
Score: 34 - 29
Point Spread: +8/-103 Middle Tennessee
Today's winner is Western Kentucky over Middle Tennessee State.
Western Kentucky is 16-1 ATS their L17 outings. The Hilltoppers are outscoring opponents by 21.0 PPG at home. Their defense has been stellar with 29 sacks and forcing a slew of TOs. Last Week alone, the stop unit had 4 takeaways in the teams' 14-6 win and cover over Florida International. The 1-2 punch of QB, Jakes (1515 YP and 15 TDs) and RB, Andrews (917 YR and 7 TDs) will shred a Blue Raiders "D" that is allowing 33.2 PPG on the road. So far this season, W KY has played a much tougher schedule than MT ST. Overall, the Hilltoppers need a few more wins to secure a bowl bid. They are 10-1 ATS their L11 games played in November, 6-1 ATS their L7 games played at home, and 5-1 ATS their L6 games played vs. teams with a winning record. The Blue Raiders are 0-4 ATS their L4 games played in November, 2-6 ATS their L8 games played following an ATS win, and 1-6 ATS their L7 games played vs. teams with a winning record. Take Western Kentucky. Thank you.
