Randy’s Free Pick
I’m not excited to back either of these teams, and even less interested to lay points. However, the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats are terrible in these spots, as they lose on the road by an average of 18.4 points and lose in the underdog role by an average of 15.1 points. It’s the Texas Southern Tigers or pass for me.
