OVER 55 IN MIDDLE TENNESSEE ST/CHARLOTTE
MTST doesn't really like to run the ballad have over 700 yards of passing so far on the season. Charlotte in their 1st two games this season scored 31 and 38 points, plus they scored 34 in their last meeting against MTST in 2019.
OVER 58 IN UNLV/FRESNO
In the last two meetings between these two schools 67 and 93 points were scored. The Rebels defense is soft (as usual) and has given up 35, 37, and 48 points (1500 yards combined) in their three games so far. Bulldogs QB Jake Haener (speaking of 1500 yards) has 1500 yards passing and 10 TDS in leading Fresno to an average of 43 points per game in 2021.
OVER 67.5 IN WAKE FOREST/VIRGINIA
The Demon Deacons are 3-0 and are averaging 39 points a game. The good news for the Cavs is that they are led by Brennan Armstrong (1300 yards ...72% completion percentage...13 total TDS) and are averaging 41 points per game, but the bad news is they are coming off of a loss to UNC where they gave up 59 points to Sam Howell and the rest of the Tar Heels.

OVER 66 IN MASSACHUSETTS/COASTAL CAROLINA
QB Grayson McCall is a tremendous player and has 41 total TDS in his career which spans just a few games over one season (completing 78% of his passes this season). UMASS continues to struggle especially on defense as this season has started. The Minutemen have actually given up 40 points or more in 18 of their last 20 contests.
OVER 54.5 IN WASHINGTON ST/UTAH
These two schools met last year and they produced 73 total points. The Cougars this past week allowed 28 points in just the 3rd quarter against USC and were ripped by freshman QB Jaxson Dart for 4 TDS off the bench. Plus, Utah is stewing after losing 33-31 to SDST on Saturday.
OVER 57.5 IN UAB/TULANE
The Blazers have a solid offense and are a bowl team on a regular basis. The Green Wave have played three games and in all three the game has landed on 75 points or more. Mississippi QB and leader odds wise for the Heisman Trophy, Matt Corral just torched Tulane for 7 total TDS in their game last week.
