The Minnesota Golden Gophers have the obvious talent edge and should win this game, but this isn’t the most talented Minnesota team, and it’s actually getting outscored at home by an average of 3.7 points. I’m not looking to lay big chalk with the Gophers. The Arkansas-Pine Bluff Golden Lions have their issues, but we do know they’ll be motivated to knock off a team from a power conference, given they don’t get these chances often. Give me the points.
