Florida Atlantic Owls 

The Owls had mixed results in their first half-dozen games this year, meandering to a .500 start. Florida Atlantic took losses to Ohio 17-10, Clemson 48-14 and Illinois 23-17 in that time. The wins otherwise came versus Ohio 17-10, Tulsa 20-17 and South Florida 56-14. Owls QB Daniel Richardson threw for 382 yards and three scores in the win over USF. 

On Saturday versus UTSA, Florida Atlantic had a 10-7 lead after one quarter but couldn’t score again in a 36-10 blowout loss. Richardson finished with 142 yards and two picks in the defeat, and Larry McCammon added 30 rush yards. Je’Quan Burton had five catches for a team-high 68 yards receiving. 

Florida Atlantic Owls Team Facts

  • Florida Atlantic has lost five of its last six games as a road favorite.
  • Florida Atlantic has failed to cover the spread in five of its last six games as a road favorite.
  • Florida Atlantic has won the first quarter in each of its last three games against conference opponents.
  • Florida Atlantic has won the first half in three of its last four road games against conference opponents.
  • Five of Florida Atlantic’s last six October games against non-AP-ranked teams have gone UNDER the total points line.

Charlotte 49ers 

Over on the Charlotte side, they started out the year with a promising win over South Carolina State 24-3, however things quickly took a turn for the worse after that. The 49ers would follow up their opener win with a string of losses, falling 38-20 to Maryland, 41-25 to Georgia State, 22-7 to Florida, 34-16 to SMU and 14-0 versus Navy. 

Matched up against East Carolina over the weekend, the 49ers managed to get their second win of the season. Charlotte was up 10-0 heading into the fourth and held strong for a 10-7 win. QB Jalon Jones finished with 144 yards and a pick, but also led the rushing on 127 yards and a touchdown. Colin Weber’s lone 40-yard catch put him atop the receiver rankings. 

Charlotte 49ers Team Facts

  • Charlotte has lost each of its last four home games in October.
  • The road team has covered the spread in each of Charlotte’s last seven games.
  • Each of Charlotte’s last six games against conference opponents have gone UNDER the total points line.

ANDREW’S FREE PICK 

I’ll probably lean toward FAU, but I’m not touching this one. The Owls looked pretty rough in their last game versus UTSA, posting just 162 total yards (142 passing), 12 first downs and two picks. Florida Atlantic came up with three takeaways on the other side but also gave up 437 yards (261 passing) and 27 first downs as the defense couldn’t get off the field. The Owls should match up better here; they’ve hit 20 or more points in two of the last three games and it won’t take much to reach that total against Charlotte. 

Speaking of the 49ers, they looked good against a not-so-great East Carolina team over the weekend but still managed just 3-of-15 on third-down tries and 16 first downs. This is going to be a tougher matchup, and if FAU plays to their capabilities the Owls should cover.
