The Texas State Bobcats aren't known for covering numbers, but they head into this game playing the better basketball and have a clear edge on the offensive side. The UL Monroe Warhawks are starting to let their season get away from them and the lack of consistent offense is beginning to hurt their defense. Much better betting options out there, but I'll lay the chalk with the Texas State Bobcats if forced to pick.
