UCF adds another dominant win

College Football Betting Trends
The Owls are just 2-6 ATS in their last eight games on grass and 0-5 ATS in their last five games in September.
The Knights are 9-2 against the spread in their last 11 games on grass and 5-1 ATS in their last six road games.
Central Florida beat FAU last season, 56-36, at home, covering a 14-point spread. The Owls had some positives last week, but the Knights are proving they are an upper echelon program in college football. The offense continues to produce points with new players as the system UCF has is incredibly effective. UCF also has a defense that isn’t easy to move on. FAU isn’t suddenly going to break out this week just because it played Ohio State last week. The Knights should be able to handle this road spread and keep rolling along.
