The North Texas Mean Green and Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at Johnny “Red” Floyd Stadium.

North Texas started off their season with a victory over Houston Baptist but since that point they have lost three straight games and failed to cover the spread in each of those three games. In the last game against the Charlotte 49ers, the defense really struggled giving up 49 points and that led to the loss. Each of the last three games Mean Green have given up at least 41 points and even against Houston Baptist they gave up 31 points. At quarterback, North Texas is led by Austin Aune who has thrown for  1,108 yards, eight touchdowns, and two interceptions. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders who have one win, but they really struggled to start the season losing each of their first three games. In the last game against FIU they finally got their season on the right track putting up 31 points and that was enough to come away with a three-point victory. This is an offense that has been inconsistent at best and just two games ago against Western Kentucky, they scored only 17 points. In this game if they want any chance to come away with a win, the Blue Raiders, need to find a way to get the offense going.

The Mean Green are 1-10 against the spread in their last 11 games played in October. The under is 12-3 in North Texas last 15 road games. North Texas is 6-20 against the spread in their last 26 games overall. Middle Tennessee is 9-2 against the spread in their last 11 games against teams with losing records. 

Middle Tennessee is going to have success scoring in this game because of how bad North Texas’s defense is. Look for both teams to have success running up the score in this game and that is going to lead to this game going well over the total. In terms of the side it's a lean to North Texas.
