Liberty Flames +2

Liberty is coming off a disappointing loss to Syracuse but the Flames played well enough to defeat the Orange. UAB defeated Tulane in its most recent outing but gave up 395 yards of total offense. In addition, UAB was sloppy with the ball turning it over twice and will face a much more difficult time against Liberty as the Flames are allowing an average of only 17.8 points per game. Liberty has covered the nut in 11 of its last 12. Final Score Prediction, Liberty Flames win and cover ATS 31-17.
