I’m leaning towards Murray State here. This isn’t a game I’m rushing to bet, but if you can say one thing about Murray State, it’s that this Racers team at least wins and gets the job done at home. Their recent struggles have mainly come on the road. Missouri State’s been the more consistent team, but their issues have also come on the road, which likely won’t be of help to them here. Give me the Racers laying the points.
