Western Kentucky evened their record at 1-1 in the Sun Belt with a 31-10 victory over Louisiana-Monroe and lifted the Hilltoppers to 4-2 overall. The Hilltoppers have now won three in a row behind solid performances on both sides of the ball with that trend continuing against the Warhawks with WKU holding a 530-391 advantage in total of yards. The ground game produced 160 yards behind Antonio Andrews who racked up 155 yards on 27 carries and a six yard TD run. The air attack took center stage with Brandon Doughty going 24-36 for 370 yards with a pair of touchdowns and an interception. Doughty spread the ball around to eleven receivers but most important was he limited mistakes which he has struggled to do at times.
Louisiana-Lafayette and Western Kentucky are both riding three game win streaks and both are pretty good in my view. I have this line at 3-4 so this line is sharp which makes it of little value so take that in consideration before betting...
