UTEP is 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games. The over is 4-0 in UTEP’s last 4 games. FAU is 14-5 ATS in their last 19 Saturday games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games. The over is 3-0-1 in FAU’s last 4 games.
FAU has been the best team in C-USA this season and has won four of their last five games. UTEP has lost two of their last three games and has the second worse record in the conference. FAU is better in just about every metric and they have scored at least 90 points in their last three home games. I like the Owls to have another big offensive day and expect them to have a blow out win.
