Florida Atlantic Owls

  • Florida Atlantic has -165 odds to score over 22.5 points.
  • Utah State surrendered 448 passing yards and 5 touchdowns last week to FAU.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.Air Force (-185) gave up a whopping 49 points last week against Utah State and faces a Florida Atlantic (+160) team on Saturday looking to do the same.

With a game total of 51.5 points, legal sports betting sites have set FAU’s team total at 22.5 points.

Air Force’s Defensive Woes

The Utah State Aggies scored at ease last week, putting up a total of 448 yards through the air, and 5 touchdowns.

If Air Force hadn’t opened the season up against Navy and the Lafayette Leopards of the Patriot League, they would be making a real strong case for having one of the worst defenses in college football.

On the other hand, Florida Atlantic returned all 5 starters on their offensive line, and are averaging 26 points per game through 3 weeks.

Air Force may have a tough time stopping redshirt freshman LaJohntay Wester, who has racked up 17 catches for 225 yards and two scores in his last two games.

Even further, the Owls are averaging 298 passing yards and 178 rushing yards.

After allowing 49 points last week, Air Force has a quick turn around having to play against an up-and-coming FAU team. Lack of continuity on the Air Force defense puts the Florida Atlantic Owls in a prime spot to go over their 22.5 team total.
