The Citadel vs. East Tennessee State Prediction 02/20/2018

Games featuring this kind of opening line would indicate the fact that a blowout is expected across the board regardless of whether East Tennessee State covers or not. The question here is the not the lumber that the Bucs are asked to spot in this situation but more so the offering on the table in Totals markets. Generally speaking, blowout games are harder to cover an over be that there is an excellent chance that the superior outfit calls off the dogs once it sustains a significant enough lead. The strategy turns to keep away which once against limits possessions. What this essentially creates is a scenario where a large number like the one we are seeing presented seems like that much longer of a swim. We will ride the steam here and play on the Under.
