ATS PICK: Illinois State
– Bet on this, BetMGM latest line
To add to all the various theories and philosophies on how to figure out this FCS thing, there’s one that seems the easiest.
Like the defense.
In general, the defenses are going to be ahead of the offenses, and if there’s a team out there that appears to have one of the best Ds, go with it.
We’re all mainly going off of rebooted teams from 18 months ago, but Illinois State should have the D and the pass rush to be great right out of the box. The running game has the talent behind a strong offensive line to control the game, but again … the defense.
South Dakota is good. The lines are solid, the passing game is going to be dangerous, and there’s enough talent in place to make this a good, fun game. However, the line is only six for the team with the D at home.
