Eastern Kentucky is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS loss and 5-16 ATS in their last 21 games against a team with a losing record while the under is 15-5-1 in their last 21 games following an ATS loss. Jacksonville is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games against a team with a losing road record while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 home games.
I’m going to back Eastern Kentucky here. I just don’t feel like laying points to take a shot with Jacksonville even at home here. The Dolphins are solid defensively, but more often than not for the Dolphins, the offense hasn’t been able to hold up its end of the bargain, to make those defensive efforts count. Eastern Kentucky’s been hard to back on the road in spots, but they’re the better team here and I think they get the job done.
