Western Kentucky +1 over Florida Atlantic 3 PM CT
The Owls had 576 yards and pulled away in the second half at home in this matchup last season, sending the Hilltoppers to 1-9 in a challenging 2018 season. FAU dominated Old Dominion last week 41-3 for now five wins in the past six games to sit on the edge of bowl eligibility after missing out last season. FAU has scored at least 28 points in six straight games but now will face a Western Kentucky defense that may be the best in the conference. The Hilltoppers have held five opponents to 14 or fewer points this season while allowing only 70 points combined in five conference games. Western Kentucky lost by three at Marshall last week as the Herd made a 53-yard field goal as time expired after the Hilltoppers tied the game in the fourth quarter. That loss opens the door for Marshall and FAU in the division race but the oddsmakers are showing a lot of respect for the home team with Tyson Helton posting one of the more impressive first-year coaching performances in the nation so far. With the line dropping from -3 all the way to +1 with action on the more popular and well known Owls behind Lane Kiffin, the time is right to jump in on the Hilltoppers at home.
