The Old Dominion Monarchs won their 2nd straight game and improved to 3-6 on the season after defeating the FIU Panthers, 47-24, this past Saturday. Old Dominion was outstanding on the offensive end against the FIU defense and was able to pull away after a 63-yard TD reception by Darius Savedge gave Old Dominion a 30-10 lead with 9:37 left in the 3rd quarter. Old Dominion outgained FIU by a 565-435 margin and forced 2 turnovers in the victory. Leading the way for the Monarchs was RB Blake Watson who had 158 rushing yards & 2 TD on 28 carries.

The Owls are 2-5-1 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games after allowing less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game. The Monarchs are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games after accumulating more than 4150 total yards in their previous game and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games on fieldturf.
Old Dominion comes into this game with just a 3-6 record, however, the Monarchs have been competitive as of late winning their last two games and gave both Marshall and UTEP all they could handle on the road. Florida Atlantic is just 1-3 on the road this season and although they have great playmaker in N’Kosi Perry, this is still an offense that has been nothing more than average this season. Old Dominion has looked much better on the offensive end since going with Hayden Wolff at QB as he provides the Monarchs with a decent passing threat and as I expect this game to stay close, I think the play here is to take the Monarchs and the points. Good Luck!
