The Eastern Kentucky Colonels are 8-5 this season but they have lost three of their last four games.

Bluford is averaging 6.8 points. Eastern Kentucky can score points but they are having trouble stopping people.
West Virginia is 4-0 against the spread following a game that they covered the point spread, 10-3 against the spread in their last 13 non-conference games, and 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games. Eastern Kentucky is 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games, 2-7 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread, and 1-6 against the spread against a team with a winning record.
This one looks like a blowout and the line says it is as well so while the number is big I still see WVU covering.
