After a couple of disappointing finishes for the the Mountaineers, I was hoping that playing the team they beat last would cure the Apps. Once the line was posted, I started getting a bad feeling where this game was heading. Appalachian, after playing two horrendous games in a row, may have started into somewhat of a tailspin. This is something the handicappers have a hard time seeing, where I listen and watch every game as it happens. The fan in me also had a slight pull toward the Mountaineers. The line was posted at Appalachian +1.5. My pick wast the Mountaineers. Elon started strong and never looked back, sending Appalachian to it’s third consecutive loss. The Apps, who were once very reliable on covering spreads, had also lost three games in a row against the spread. My record, which was once 7-4 has now fallen two games below .500 at 8-10.
