UT Martin Skyhawks vs Tennessee State Tigers prediction

Neither UT Martin nor Tennessee State have had consistent success, and they’re not covering numbers. However, the UT Martin Skyhawks have gotten fat against non D1 teams and their defense is troubling. The Tennessee State Tigers have had more success against better teams this season, and their offense should have a field day here, especially at home. The chalk is reasonable. Give me Tennessee State for the win and cover.
