Entering Week 9, Florida Atlantic has jumped from a 2.5-point favorite to a three-point favorite. Not surprisingly, this should be a close one—but we’re not buying what oddsmakers are selling in terms of a straight up favorite.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Louisiana Tech ATS
Not only are we picking Louisiana Tech to win against the spread, we’re giving them the victory straight up. Their defense should be good enough to stop—or at least contain—what Florida Atlantic sends their way, which is going to be crucial considering their own offense will likely have trouble moving the ball for significant stretches, especially in the first half out of the gate.
If this game were played on a neutral field, you’d likely see the Bulldogs named slight favorites.
Florida Atlantic’s home-field advantage is good-not-great and doesn’t give us enough faith to pick them to win outright.
This one goes to the underdog in a contest that will likely go down to the final minutes of the fourth quarter.
