College Football Betting Trends
The Warhawks have hit the under in five straight conference games and in 10 of their last 13 road games.
The Mountaineers have hit the under in five of their last seven conference meetings.
These two have hit the over in their last four meetings. The Mountaineers are going to score on this Monroe defense. The Warhawks can’t stop anyone and App State has the ability to score in clumps. Defensively, the Mountaineers aren’t the sharpest team, but the Warhawks aren’t exactly going to overwhelm them on the road either. Their last two road games have seen them score 44 points combined. I think these two flirt with the over, but will come just shy of hitting it.
