At Boca Raton, Florida

Troy -3½ at Florida Atlantic (51)

There’s nothing else on the betting plate. Zilch! So if you absolutely must have some action going today, read on. These two teams each played Middle Tennessee State on the road. Troy won by 14, FAU lost by 1 on the last play of the game on a prayer from beyond the 30. The visiting Trojans have spent most of the season on the road, so Boca Raton should seem a vacation spot.

The host Owls totaled just 26 points in their four losses, including the 14-13 affair at MTSU. The 51-point projected total seems high considering that these offenses are not exactly Oklahoma-Texas. Howard Schnellenberger’s Owls have won their only home game this season, but the safer play looks to be in a low-scoring affair. UNDER.
