Free NCAAF Pick:

UAB Blazers -16

The Golden Eagles are giving up a lot of points on the defense and I feel the Blazers will take advantage that and score big this Saturday. On the opposite side of the ball Offensively the Golden Eagles are only scoring 16.5 points per game. That being said I just don't think the Golden Eagles will be able to keep up with the Blazers scoring. Final Score Prediction UAB Blazers win and cover ATS 29-10.
