CHAR­LOTTE over Old Do­min­ion by 3

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - Page 6 1.800.playbook -

Maybe you’ve heard of a game called ‘Would You Rather’, where con­tes­tants are forced to choose be­tween two op­tions – which of­ten be­come more un­pleas­ant as the com­pe­ti­tion wears on. Like in this evening’s CUSA East barn­burner be­tween the Mon­archs and 49ers. Would you rather watch this en­tire game on TV or trim your own toe­nails with hedge clippers? Per­son­ally, we’ll avoid the drama and look strictly at cash­ing a ticket with the home dog Nin­ers. De­spite be­ing 0-2 SUATS and ITS (lost the stats by a whop­ping 383 yards), the Mon­archs go out as road chalk for the sec­ond time in as many tries this sea­son, and they failed mis­er­ably at Lib­erty in the sea­son opener. Char­lotte closes out a 3-game home­s­tand by look­ing to avenge a 6-0 white­wash suf­fered at ODU last sea­son, a ‘would you rather’ snooze­fest if there ever was one. Hey, if the Mon­archs stay fa­vored at game time, we’re not buy­ing… not with Old Do­min­ion now away when com­ing off a SUATS loss in its young ten­ure as an FBS mem­ber. Throw in a Char­lotte de­fense that gives up 180 less yard per game than ODU and we’re on the take this evening in the Queen City.
