Stephen F. Austin vs. UT-Arlington Prediction

I’m on the Mavericks here. The reality is that SFA is just a bad cover team and allowed it to happen again on Wednesday against Abilene Christian. UT-Arlington’s the far better team in this matchup and I think Arlington takes care of business to advance with the win and cover here.
