(207) Western Kentucky vs. Florida Atlantic (208)
PICK: 888sport @ -18 FAU (-114)
DATE: November 10, 2018 - 5:00 PM
STAR RATING: 10.0
EXPERT: Ben Burns
EVALUATION: Win (1000) - Final Score WKU 15 at FAU 34
I'm playing FAU. Much to the delight of Lane Kiffin, the Owls finally played up to their potential last time out, crushing rival FIU by a 49-14 score. Kiffin commented: "Running the ball and stopping the run — 439 yards rushing to 96. You're going to win every game if you do that. That's probably why I was most excited after the game, besides the rivalry part of it — that we finally played how we should've been playing all year long." I fully expect Kiffin's crew to carry the momentum into Saturday against an overmatched Western Kentucky team. The Hilltoppers have seen better days. They've now lost five straight. Two of those five were on the road and they lost those ones by a combined score of 69-24. While Kiffin hadn't arrived yet, he'll make sure to remind his players of the embarrassing 52-3 loss that FAU suffered in 2016, the last time that the Hilltoppers visited. The shoe's on the other foot this time. Expect a one-sided blowout.
