PICK: I’ll probably take a stab on Abilene Christian here. We should have a pretty great matchup here though, so you could make a case either way. The Wildcats are playing well during this 6-1 stretch. They’ve hit 83 or more points in five of those seven games and should score pretty well in this one. As for Stephen F. Austin, they’ve hit 70 or more points in seven straight games themselves. I like this one to be a fairly high-scoring matchup with Abilene Christian eking out a cover. Should be a fun one to watch.
