Old Dominion +8 3.3% play / ODU +260 1% play
Coaching mismatch here with Bobby Wilder over MIke Sandford who has to take his Western Kentucky on the road on a short week. That's not easy when you don't have a lot of experience. Western Kentucky won last week 45-14, but they beat arguably the worst team in college football in Charlotte. Charlotte's defensive line is ranked #130, and #129 in adjusted sack rate, and finally this Western Kentucky offensive line that ranks 130th had time to throw and the results were great. However, this week they go on the road to face Old Dominion who actually is ranked 10th in adjusted sack rate, and 2nd in sack rate on passing downs. This is really a bad match up for Western Kentucky and they have proven nothing to deserve to be more than a TD favorite on the road.
Old Dominion also getting healthier with Ray Lawry at RB coming back last week. Western Kentucky's offense is a shell of what it was last year. They have struggled despite playing defenses ranked 114th, 93rd, 70th, 80th and 72nd. I expect Old Dominion, a well coached team to be in this one until the end.
