The Florida International Golden Panthers are coming off of a loss to Mid Tennessee State last weekend. The FIU offense is averaging 27.8 points per game with 378.2 yards per game. The FIU offense is led by quarterback Alex McGough who has 1659 yards, 14 touchdowns, and 3 interceptions.

The Florida International defense has given up 24.1 points per game with 377.6 yards per game. The FIU defense has 12 sacks, 3 fumble recoveries, and 6 interceptions. Florida International will try to make it 3 wins in a row while playing at home this year.
The Old Dominion Monarchs are off of a win against Charlotte last week. The ODU offense is averaging 20 points per game and 327.1 yards per game. The quarterback for Old Dominion is David Washington who has 365 yards, 4 touchdowns, and 1 interception. The ODU rushing attack is led by Ray Lawry who has 669 yards and 7 touchdowns.

Old Dominion’s defense has 12 sacks, 7 fumble recoveries, and 3 interceptions. Old Dominion needs to win this game to stay one game back of the leaders in the C-USA East standings.
Old Dominion is 3-13 ATS in their last 16 games overall. The over is 8-2 in Old Dominion’s last 10 road games. Florida International is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 conference games. The over is 6-0 in Florida International’s last 6 home games.
This game is pretty even on paper between these two teams but the obvious advantage lies with Florida International who is the home team. However, I think Old Dominion will play well enough to cover the spread.
