Saturday, November 24th brings you NCAA Football action from two Conference USA teams who are wrapping up their 2018 seasons. Old Dominion travels to Houston to take on the Rice Owls live from Rice Stadium.
Old Dominion laid a beat down on VMI last week by a score of 77-14, while Rice got smacked around pretty good by #7 LSU on the road. Expect another dominating performance by Old Dominion this weekend.
Old Dominion Monarchs
The Monarch sure decided to turn things around in the second half of their season. They now have won three out of their last four games, and look to finish off their rough season with a three game winning streak. I think they will do it, even though they failed to make Bowl eligibility.
The Monarchs have put 30 or more points on the board in six of their last seven games, including the 77 they scored last week. Offense doesn’t seem to be their problem, it is shutting down the other team when they need to that has been their downfall in 2018.
In their only truly dominating defensive performance of the campaign, the Monarchs completely shut down the VMI running game last week, allowing only 72 yards on 26 attempts. They allowed a total of 288 yards in the game. Look for another superb effort out of this defensive unit on Saturday.
Thank God Rice had that extra game scheduled this season, or they easily could’ve gone 0-12 on the year. They now hold an 11 game losing streak, and haven’t won a game since August 25th, a 31-28 victory over Prairie View A&M.
The Owls have given up 40 or more points in seven of their 11 losses on the year. Suffice it to say that defense is not this teams strong suit. Rice’s defense allowed at least 20 points in all 12 of their games leading up to Saturday’s matchup with Old Dominion. Look for that stat to be a perfect 13 for 13 when the 60 minutes is up.
Rice gave up 552 total yards to LSU last weekend. Old Dominion had over 500 yards in their game last weekend as well, including over 330 on the ground, so it looks to be a very long day for this Owls defensive unit.

Neither of these two teams are all that great, but Old Dominion has seemed to turn it on near the end of the season, and I expect that form to continue through Saturday’s game as well

I don’t think it’s a matter of if Old Dominion will cover the spread or not, I think it’s more like, by how many points will they win by?
Take Old Dominion to win this game on the road, and for them to cover the spread. But I think it will be a lot lower scoring game than the betting total leads you to believe, so take the UNDER.
