The Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks and Troy Trojans face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at the Troy University Veterans Memorial Stadium. When these two teams faced off in 2021 it was Louisiana-Monroe that secured the 29-16 victory. 

Louisiana-Monroe comes into this game with a 4-6 record overall and they have gone 4-6 against the spread. In the last game against Georgia State, the offense scored 31 points, and that led to the three point victory. Quarterback Chandler Rogers completed 15 of his 29 passes for 225 yards, zero touchdowns, and an interception. Louisiana-Monroe is averaging 24.2 points while their defense is giving up 35.9 points per game. The defense is ranked 122nd in the league. 

On the other side of this matchup is Troy who sits with an 8-2 record and they have gone 7-3 against the spread. In the last game against Army, the defense was good giving up ten points, but the offense only scored nine points. Three games ago against South Alabama, Troy scored only 10 points, but the defense gave up six points. Against Army, quarterback Gunnar Watson completed 15 of his 31 passes for 192 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. Troy is averaging 21.3 points while their defense is giving up 16.7 points per game. In this game it’s going to be important the offense finds a way to get going. 

Louisiana-Monroe is 5-12 against the spread in their last 17 road games. Troy is 5-1 against the spread in their last six conference games. The over is 4-0 in the Warhawks last four games following an against the spread win. Troy is 4-0 against the spread in their last four home games. The under is 23-8 in Trojans last 31 games after scoring less than 20 points in their previous game.

This is going to be a game that has issues reaching even 20 points. Troy’s defense has been lights out all season giving up only 16.7 points per game but their offense has been an issue this season and that is going to continue here. Look for a lower scoring game, and this will stay under the total. 

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