Liberty vs. Western Kentucky Prediction
I’m picking Liberty to win and cover the spread at -5. I’m also predicting the game will go Over 60.5 total points.
Liberty is the more complete team in this matchup and should be able to win by a touchdown. The Flames are first in CUSA in terms of total offense (487.9 yards per game) and total defense (331.7 yards per game allowed).
However, I think Western Kentucky’s offense, which ranks second in the league with 30 points per game scored, will give Liberty some problems. I could see this being a high-scoring game, but I believe Liberty’s defense will make just enough plays late to give the Flames a seven-point win.
