The Line: Charlotte 49ers -1 -- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds


The Eastern Michigan Eagles will look to get back in the win column at the Charlotte 49ers.

The Eastern Michigan Eagles opened up 2016 with a rout of MVSU but they quickly learned the SEC was a different animal in getting steamrolled 61-21 at Missouri that was never competitive. The Tigers dominated total yardage 647-428 but a poor rushing attack and no ability to control Missouri through the air was costly. Ian Eriksen was competent on the ground with 90 yards on 23 carries and a score but more was needed to keep the Tigers offense off the field. Eagles quarterback Todd Porter had a decent game throwing the ball with 287 yards on 23-45 and a touchdown but a pair of interceptions including a pick six put a damper on his effort. John Niupalau and Sergio Bailey combined for ten catches for 115 yards but the EMU defense couldn’t give the offense a helping hand.

After getting smacked around in their opener by Louisville, the Charlotte 49ers needed a boost in confidence and found it in a 47-14 victory versus visiting ELON as a three touchdown favorite Saturday. The 49ers outgained the Phoenix 508-419 and forced three turnovers while eliminating the run. Charlotte quarterback Kevin Olsen connected on 19-25 for 155 yards and three touchdowns with Matt Johnson going 1-1with a 76 yard scoring strike. Austin Duke paced the 49ers receiving corps with four receptions for 103 yards and a score while Ben LeMay and Hasaan Klugh combined for 141 rushing yards on just eight touches.

The Eagles are 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 games after allowing more than 40 points in their previous game and the over is 8-1 in Eagles last 9 road games while going  6-1 in Eagles last 7 games in September. The 49ers are 1-5-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall and the over is 5-1 in 49ers last 6 games overall while going  5-1 in 49ers last 6 games after accumulating more than 450 total yards in their previous game.
