Randy’s Free Pick
The Lindenwood Lions were a losing team on the season and loses in the underdog role by an average of 9.1 points. The Southeast Missouri State Redhawks have issues of their own, but they did do a decent job of winning the games they’re supposed to win, and this is one of those spots. You can argue this line is a bit soft, given just how bad Lindenwood is. I’ll lay the chalk.
