Middle Tennessee at LA Tech - 11/5/22 College Football Picks and Prediction

Click Here for the Latest Odds

The Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders and Louisiana Tech Bulldogs face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at Joe Allient Stadium. The last time these two teams faced off was in 2016. 

Middle Tennessee comes into this game with a 4-4 record overall and they are coming off a victory in the last game. Against UTEP, Middle Tennessee only gave up 13 points, and that led to the 11-point victory. Quarterback Chase Cunningham completed 21 of his 27 passes for 265 yards, three touchdowns, and zero interceptions. Middle Tennessee on the season is averaging 27.5 points while their defense is giving up 29.3 points per game. The biggest issue for Middle Tennessee has been its inconsistency. In this game, they need the defense to be good here. 

Louisiana Tech comes into this game with a 2-6 record overall and they have gone 4-4 against the spread. In the last game against Florida International, Louisiana Tech scored 34 points, but it wasn’t enough as they were defeated in overtime. Louisiana Tech has lost three games in a row. Quarterback Landry Lyddy completed 28 of his 40 passes for 256 yards. Marquis Crosby finished with 21 carries for 115 yards, and two touchdowns. Louisiana Tech is averaging 31.6 points while their defense is giving up 39.6 points per game. The defense is ranked 130th and they need the defense to be strong here. 

Middle Tennessee is 5-2 against the spread in their last seven road games. Louisiana Tech is 4-1 against the spread in their last five home games. The over is 5-0 in Blue Raiders last 5 road games vs. a team with a losing home record. The over is 5-1 in Bulldogs last 6 games after allowing more than 280 yards passing in their previous game. 

I really don’t trust either of these teams and there are better games to bet on. Middle Tennessee has the better quarterback in Cunningham and I expect he’s going to find success again in this game. It might not be the prettiest game, but I expect Cunningham is going to find success against the Bulldogs defense, and that will be the difference. Back Middle Tennesse against the spread. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
