Randy’s Free Pick

You can argue the Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Islanders are the better team, but they haven’t had a lot of success on the road, so you can understand why this line is what it is. While inconsistent, Nicholls State wins at home by an average of 29.6 points while shooting 50.9 percent from the field. I’ll lay the bucket.
