The line hasn’t yet been set for this contest (check back soon!) but odds are, this game is going to be—in the eyes of oddsmakers—a chance for Air Force to get a convincing win in Week 1.
Odds are, they’re going to be wrong.
This game should be closer than many expect.
Stony Brook Seawolves
As far as FCS opponents go, Air Force chose one in Stony Brook that is going to have its league’s best defense, or at least one of the league’s best defenses.
The defensive aptitude starts with continuity. The Seawolves are bringing back eight starters on defense this season. That’s huge considering most teams at their level are either constantly trying out new talent or watching its best players transfer to bigger programs.
Then again, continuity does not a great defense make—it’s just the start. This team has proof from last season that it can play at a high level, especially against the run.
Stony Brook gave up just 97 yards per contest on the year in 2017, and it should find success in this game when it comes to putting pressure on both the quarterback and the tailback on a regular basis.
Air Force Falcons
As well as we can expect the Seawolves to play on defense, Air Force should win that offense vs. defense battle when it’s all said and done.
That doesn’t mean the Falcons are going to drop a 50 burger or anything like that, but even if the battle is close, Air Force should come away victorious.
With that in mind, we can also confidently say that Air Force will win the defense vs. offense battle by a wider margin.
Having both of those things on your side is a recipe for success—even if the final result makes the game look much closer than it feels late in the contest.
Free Week 1 NCAA Football Pick
The first three weeks of the college football season—regardless of year—is going to feature plenty of FBS-FCS interconfertnce battles. Out of all of them, this might be the one to keep an eye on as the most entertaining of the year.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Odds are OFF as of 12:15pm ET August 13th.
Air Force should come away with a victory, but remember what we said at the beginning.
Oddsmakers are likely to give the Falcons a more significant advantage than in reality.
Give this one to Air Force, but don’t count out a Seawolves team with a lot to prove when it comes to keeping things close.
