I’m backing Abilene Christian and the points in this one. I get Grand Canyon being favored because they’re at home, but the Wildcats areplaying fairly well lately and Grand Canyon hasn’t been able to cover themselves with a sheet let alone cover a point spread right now. Grand Canyon’s been favored in a lot of spots and haven’t been able to come through with the cover even though they’re getting the occasional win. The first meeting was tight and I think the rematch will be as well. Give me Abilene Christian and the points.
