The Redhawks have looked pretty bad lately, though to their credit they’ve put up at least 72 points in each of their last three games, which isn’t too bad. Trouble is, SEMO is allowing too many points to keep up. Austin Peay, meanwhile, has looked solid lately and I think they’ve got enough scoring up top to manage a cover here. I’ll take the Governors.
