Total high in CUSA Championship
Two top offenses go head-to-head in the Conference USA Championship today when Western Kentucky battles for the title with Southern Mississippi.
According to oddsmakers at RealBets, Western Kentucky is favored in this game, as the Hilltoppers are getting odds of -7.5 points against Southern Miss. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 74 points. These two meet today at Noon ET from L.T. Smith Stadium in Bowling Green, KY. The game airs live on ESPN2.
The offense should be fast and furious in this game as both units are equally potent. Western Kentucky (10-2, 6-6 ATS) is averaging 44.2 points and 519.7 yards per game while Southern Miss (9-3, 10-2 ATS) is putting up 41.7 points and 534.8 yards per contest. Hence why the total is so high for this game.
Despite the explosive offense, Southern Miss hasn’t been great with the over, going 7-5 with the under this season. However, the Golden Eagles have hit the over in their last three, and even in the games they went under, it wasn’t for a lack of points on their part. They have posted at least 32 points in all of their wins. WKU has put up at least 35 in all wins outside of the season opener with Vanderbilt.
