The over is 16-5 in Cowboys last 21 home games. The over is 6-2 in Cowboys last 8 Saturday games. The over is 23-8-1 in Bears last 32 games following a straight up loss.
The McNeese Cowboys haven't played anybody up to this point, so the jury is still out on their recent hot stretch. However, McNeese has at least had some success and that's more than we can say about the Central Arkansas Bears. There's much better betting options on a loaded CBB Saturday, but I'd still grab the free bucket with the McNeese Cowboys if forced to pick.
