SMU vs. Florida Atlantic,
12/21/2019 15:30 EDT,
Score: 28 - 52
Point Spread: +3½/-110 Florida Atlantic
Lane Kiffin has left the Florida Atlantic sidelines but things are looking up as Willie Taggart is about to take over. Add to that a new defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer stepping in for this game and the Owls look like a football program with upside, and the ability to upend SMU here today. You have to remember, that FAU owns a big play attack with and with SMU secondary giving up 285 yards per game their vulnerable to be nipped here for big yards , gains and subsequent scores. on the flip side, Im betting the Mustangs will have problems running the ball vs a Owls team that have allowed fewer than 100 yards in five of their last ten games. If SMU cant run the ball, their passing game will be easier to read, and problems will arise as this tilt goes on.
SMU is 0-6 ATS in road games versus good offensive teams - averaging 5.9 or more yards/play over the last 3 seasons. SMU is 0-9 ATS in road games after playing 2 straight conference games over the last 3 seasons.
