LINE: North Texas -9.5, o/u: 55
POINT TOTAL PICK: Over
Go ahead and take a wee bit of a chance here that the North Texas offense is about to show up again. But even when it struggled against Louisiana Tech, the two teams still combined for 56 points.
There’s a shot the Mean Green will open it up and take care of most of the work on their own.
Forget the 58 points against FCSer Incarnate Word; UNT put up 44 points or more in each of the first four games. If this offense can find a groove right away, this will be a breeze.
However, Southern Miss has yet to allow more than 24 points so far, and that came against Auburn. The Eagles have to get the offense going, and it’s going to have to handle well more than 20 of the work. If you think they can get to around 25, there shouldn’t be a problem.
Of course, last year doesn’t matter, but the two combined for 61.
