10 Best Over/Under Point Total Picks So Far: 36-34

Fresno State at New Mexico 52.5 UNDER
Penn State at Indiana 61 OVER
North Texas at UAB 54.5 UNDER

10. Charlotte at Middle Tennessee

LINE: Middle Tennessee -16.5, o/u: 48.5

Both starting quarterbacks are out – or, at best, Brent Stockstill of Middle Tennessee is gimpy – but whatever. 48.5? You worry too much.

Four of the five Charlotte games have rolled past that without a problem – one side has scored 40 or more on its own in three of the five games.

The Blue Raiders have allowed 24 points in each of the last three games. If they do that again, getting the over on the total won’t be an issue at all.

9. Nevada at Hawaii

LINE: Hawaii -3, o/u: 67

Yeah, Nevada’s offense hit the skids over the last two weeks, scoring just three against Fresno State and 27 against Boise State. Hawaii’s defense isn’t as good.

Blow off the Hawaii 17-13 win over Wyoming a few weeks ago – the Cowboys kept it low. Rainbow Warrior games are fun-fests of points, with with of the eight having no problems blowing past 67 points.

Nevada has to be a part of this, and it has the offensive style to get rolling in a bit of a shootout. Both teams will be in the 30s, and chasing late night, you’ll have fun with this.

8. Akron at Kent State

LINE: Akron -5, o/u: 52

This is a yuck-fest of a game that you won’t want to watch unless forced to, but there’s an opportunity here.

The Akron offense has been miserable, scoring 40 points total over the last three games. There was the total aberration of a comeback in the 39-34 win over Northwestern, and Miami University put up 41 on the board, but the other three games weren’t close to 52.

Kent State games have occasionally gotten out of hand, mostly because the defense get hammered too hard. This week, expect a low-scoring battle with neither offense pushing hard past the mid-20s.

7. Georgia Southern at New Mexico State

LINE: Georgia Southern -11, o/u: 54.5

Wyoming beat New Mexico State 29-7 in the opener, and the Aggies beat UTEP 27-20. The other five Aggie games have obliterated the 54.5 mark, with Louisiana scoring 66 on its own last week and Utah State putting up 60 early in the season.

Georgia Southern games go fast thanks to the option offense, and the Eagle D has allowed 13 points in each of the last two games and four times in the six games this year, but you like this because of the offense.

NMSU isn’t going to stop the Eagle attack that should hit 40 without breathing hard.

6. Miami University at Army

LINE: Army -8, o/u: 47.5

You’re worried that the Army defense will turn the lights out.

It stuffed Buffalo for 13 points two weeks ago, gave up just three to San Jose State, and have the style and ability to keep the scores really, really low.

But all six Army games so far have gone over 47.5.

Three of the last six Miami games have gone under that, but the offense has scored 31 points or more in each of the last four games and should be good for at least 20 points.

And there’s a chance, if the Army offense finds its mojo right away, one side could hit 48 on its own.
