Detroit has been very good on offense this season, as they are ranked 9th in points per game. However, Detroit has been bad on defense and is allowing over 82 points per game. Western Kentucky is a lower scoring team, but their defense is not much better. I like Detroit to win this game in a high scoring contest.
