With the start of conference play just around the corner, Northern Kentucky looks to start off with a win. During non-conference play, Northern Kentucky went 5-1 at home and 8-4 overall while boasting a 6-4 record against the spread. On the other hand, Milwaukee went 1-5 away from home during non-conference play and only 5-7 overall. On top of this, they have only covered the spread in 3 of there last 10 games. In my latest power rankings Northern Kentucky came in at 77 and Milwaukee ranks 287. This glaring difference is the main reason why Northern Kentucky -6.5 seems like a great play.
