Randy’s Free Pick
The Charlotte 49ers aren’t a pushover, but FAU is easily the best team in the conference and will be eager to bounce back from just its second loss. FAU has proven it can win on the road and is 15-5-1 ATS on the season overall. There’s no stepping in front of FAU as long as the line is reasonable. I’ll lay the chalk.
