The Florida Atlantic Owls are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games as a double-digit favorite. The UTSA Roadrunners are 1-5 ATS in their last six games as a double-digit underdog. The Florida Atlantic Owls has proven they can win on the road, has covered seven straight on the road and outside of a loss to Marshall, they consistently beat up on the teams that are in their talent pool.

There's no reason not to take FAU in a comfortable road victory.
