This is my BOCA RATON BOWL WINNER.

Without a doubt, the wrong team is favored, as I feel the Owls should be a FG fav. Maybe the odds makers are putting too much stock in the fact that defensive coordinator, Glenn Spence is the interim head coach in the wake of Lane Kiffin's departure for 'Ole Miss. This is the home stadium for FAU which lost their opening two games on 2019 to Ohio State and UCF, before rattling off 10 wins in their final 11 outings, all by double-digits.
Both offenses can light up the scoreboard, but the FAU defense (led nation in takeaways and interceptions) is much tighter than the leaky, SMU "D" (31.8 PPG allowed).
The Owls are 4-0 ATS the last four vs. winners, 7-3 ATS the last 10 in December, and 5-1 ATS the last six overall. Take Florida Atlantic. Thank you.
