WKU Hilltoppers

The biggest issue for the Hilltoppers in this game is their offensive unit. Western Kentucky has been struggling to progress off-late with the weak offense. From the defensive end, the Hilltoppers are not doing too great to hold-off the Golden Eagles. New sports betting sites are against WKU to win this game against Southern Mississippi. While they might try their best to get past the opponent, the Hilltoppers will not be able to keep up the pace.
