Western Kentucky Hilltoppers +3.5

Western Kentucky suffered losses during the season to BYU, Liberty and Louisville but has won each of its last three and is allowing an average of just 24.1 points per game and led the Conference USA in pass defense allowing just 170.1 yards per game. The Hilltoppers pass defense will look to contain the Georgia State offense led by quarterback Cornelius Brown and limit the number of yards passing by the Georgia State QB.
