I’m not eager to back either of these teams, especially in the favorite role, but we can all agree the James Madison Dukes are the better side. James Madison is still a balanced offensive side and has a defense that’s second against the run. The Old Dominion Monarchs cant run the ball, are 108th in scoring offense and 117th in rush defense. While both clubs are riding 3-game losing streaks, it’s James Madison that’s in far and away better shape. I’ll lay the points if forced to pick.
