I think there’s hotlines if you feel the need to bet this dumpster fire of a game. I mean these are two of the worst teams in the country so good luck finding a definitive edge here. I’ll side with the under because as bad as they’ve been defensively on both sides, the offense has been pretty bad as well, so give me the under here in a game where nobody really wins.
