NORTH TEXAS over Old Do­min­ion by 16

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

Glad we’re not a North Texas player or coach forced to at­tend this week’s game re­view to see what went wrong. Yes, when you al­low your op­po­nent to score 69 points – the most since Ok­la­homa dropped 79 on the Mean Green to open the 2007 sea­son – it’s go­ing to be a LONG ses­sion point­ing out mis­takes. How­ever, we’re sure Bobby Wilder and his ODU coach­ing staff are go­ing to spend just as much time check­ing out the footage to bol­ster their game plan for this evening’s meet­ing at Den­ton. Yes, while the Green were red-faced af­ter the 69-31 beat­down by FAU (their first CUSA loss of the sea­son), they’re still tied atop the West Di­vi­sion and anx­ious to re­gain their mo­men­tum af­ter hav­ing a 3-game win streak snapped by the Owls. On the flip side, the Mon­archs find them­selves at the bot­tom of the CUSA East at 0-3, 2-5 – which is a far cry from last year’s 10-win edi­tion. Old Do­min­ion is also be­ing out­stat­ted by 146 YPG, as op­posed to out­gain­ing foes by 51 YPG in 2016. The strug­gling vis­i­tors own a flimsy 1-6 ATS mark away ver­sus .500 or greater op­po­si­tion, which fits nicely with UNT’s 6-2 ATS ef­fort as con­fer­ence chalk of more than 7 points. The fin­ish­ing touch comes cour­tesy of the SMART BOX as it ad­vises us to fade ODU this evening. Con­sider it done.
