Neither of these teams have been all that impressive through 6 games, so I’m not eager to get involved here. With that said, the Northern Kentucky Norse have had major scoring issues up to this point, so seeing them lay double-digit chalk is a bit strange. Northern Kentucky needs to shoot the ball better for me to lay this much chalk. Give me Tennessee Tech and the free buckets.
