The Butler Bulldogs and Morehead State Eagles face off on Saturday in a week 8 FCS college football showdown at the Butler Bowl.Both of these teams haven’t found a whole lot of success so far this season.
The Butler Bulldogs come into this game with an 0-3 record overall but their most competitive game was in their last one against Valparaiso. For the most part this season the offense hasn’t been elite and in two of the three games they have scored 14 points or less. In that last game Butler scored 25 points but they gave up 28 points and it was a three point defeat. Butler was led at quarterback by Sam Brown who finished the game throwing for 226 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. On the ground the best player was Kavon Williams who finished the game rushing 20 times for 88 yards, and a touchdown. In this game, Butler is going to need the offense to be better.
On the other side of this matchup is the Morehead State Eagles who have won only one of their four games but in their last game they lost they were also competitive. Morehead State scored 21 points but their defense allowed Davidson to score 24 points and that led to the defeat. The only win game two games ago against Stetson, and it was Morehead State that was able to come away with the 31-14 victory. At quarterback Morehead STate was led by Mark Pappas who finished the game with 284 yards and three touchdowns.
I don’t trust laying points with either of these two teams and that means I don’t trust Butler to keep this game close. Back Morehead State to come away with the cover of the spread. Putting a few dollars on Morehead State to win this game outright is worth a look.
