Both teams have been hit or miss all season long, but I don't think there's much of a question that the Florida Atlantic Owls have shown us more up to this point. FAU has the more efficient offense and has played its best ball at home. You can make an argument that this line should be a lot steeper than it is. I'll gladly lay the bucket with FAU at home.
