Randy’s Free Pick

I’m not running to the window to back either of these teams, especially in the favorite role, but the Evansville Aces are a different level of suck. Evansville is getting clapped nightly, doesn’t cover numbers and loses on the road by an average of 17.5 points. It’s ugly. This pick has to be UIC or pass. Evansville looks like a team ready for the season to end.
