Louisiana-Monroe vs Texas State Prediction

UL Monroe is coming into this game as a 3.5 point underdog with the current betting odds according to Draftkings Sportsbook. ULM has not won a game on the road this season but their 3 opponents that they have played were Kentucky and then the 2 best teams in their conference, App State and CCU. They have actually been playing well in their conference games so far. Texas State has been playing very badly in their conference games getting shut out in their last one and riding a 3 game losing streak. ULM is going to come to play here against a team they know they can beat. The best bet to place in this game is on ULM to cover the spread here.
