This is a matchup I’m really not trying to pick a side in, as neither side has been much of anything to write home about so far. Instead, even with the low total, I’m still going to side with the under. These are two lower-scoring teams as it is, and I’d be surprised if this one went above 41 points, something in the area of 24-17. These sim games can be high scoring but I don’t think this one is. Give me the under.
