OLD DO­MIN­ION over Fla At­lantic by 4

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

The Mon­archs had a week off to re­cover from back-to-back beat­ings by ACC teams, los­ing by 30 to UNC and by 38 to Vir­ginia Tech. Seven­teenyear old QB Steven Wil­liams made his first CFB start against the Hok­ies two weeks ago (he was only 8-for26 for 85 yards), so ODU head coach Bobby Wilder might want to con­sider ex­ploit­ing a soft FAU rush de­fense that’s al­low­ing 4.7 yards per carry. In fact, the Owls have been out­yarded in all four FBS games this sea­son, and are 0-5-1 ATS in their last six road chalk ap­pear­ances. Old Do­min­ion has been a tough out at home since the start of the 2016 sea­son, go­ing 8-1 SU in its last nine tries at Nor­folk (lone loss in this year’s opener against Navy). Our data­base wraps things up with this beauty: home dogs play­ing with rest off a shutout loss are 19-11 ATS since 1982, in­clud­ing 7-2 ATS as dogs of less than 5 points. A must take as the Mon­archs force FAU’s Lane Kiff­ing to bend the knee.
