The over is 4-1-1 in Mocs last 6 neutral site games and the over is 6-2-1 in Dolphins last 9 neutral site games.
The Chattanooga Mocs haven't looked good at all and are coming off a loss that may have been their worst of the season. The Jacksonville Dolphins have struggles of their own, but they've at least shown flashes and have played some decent comp to explain the poor start. I'll take Jacksonville and the small chalk, as I want nothing to do with the Mocs right now.
