College Football Betting Trends
The Bulldogs are 4-0 ATS in their last four games on grass. The over is 4-0 in the last four Louisiana Tech games versus a team with a losing record.
The Owls are 0-5 ATS in their last five Friday games. Florida Atlantic is 1-6 ATS in its last seven games overall.
Florida Atlantic was hammered by Marshall its last game and I can’t trust the hosts here. Even if the Owls win with a field goal, the Bulldogs win on the spread. With the hook in place and Louisiana Tech looking for a win that would gain it bowl eligibility, that is the side I want to be on tonight.
PREDICTION: LOUISIANA TECH +3.5
