The Charlotte 49ers and Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at Floyd Stadium.
The Charlotte 49ers have won two of their last three games with the one loss coming in the last game against the Duke Blue Devils. The defense really struggled against Duke giving up 53 points and that led to the blowout loss. On the season Charlotte is averaging 28.6 points per game while the defense is giving up 31.6 points per game. At quarterback the 49ers are led by Chris Reynolds who has thrown for 1,100 yards, six touchdowns, and two interceptions. In this game the defense needs to step up and make life tough on the Blue Raiders offense.
On the other side of this matchup is Middle Tennessee who got out to a slow start to the season but they come into this game having won two of the last three games. In the last game against Rice the defense struggled giving up 34 points but the offense made up for it putting up 40 points. Each of the last three games, Middle Tennessee has scored at least 31 points and the offense is going to need to be elite again in this game. If they want to keep ti close and pull out the wind. On the season Middle Tennessee is averaging 24.6 points per game while the defense is giving up 37.1 points per game. Over the last three games the average on offense is 35.3 points per game.
The 49ers are 8-3 against the spread in their last 11 games against teams with losing records. The over is 7-1 in Middle Tennessee’s last eight conference games. Middle Tennessee is 7-2 against the spread in their last nine games played in November.
Middle Tennessee has been running up the score the last couple of games, but their defense has also been terrible. In this game, look for a game with lots of scoring and very little defense from either side. This game is going to go well over the total and it’s really not even going to be close.
