CFB | Charlotte 13 @ FAU 43 | 08/27 | 11:00 PM UTC

FAU -290

WIN

ANALYSIS: CBS Sports Network has this Conference USA matchup. I am mad at myself for not taking this when it was FAU -5.5 and now that it's -7.5, I feel no choice but to do the moneyline before it gets to -300. I am very confident the Owls win at home -- it won 38-9 at Charlotte last year -- but I'm not sure about covering the number as openers are always tricky. Coach Willie Taggart brings back his starting QB (Miami transfer N'Kosi Perry), top running back (Johnny Ford), top two wideouts and four starting offensive linemen. The defense is a moderate concern, but Taggart added a handful of Power 5 transfers and has one of C-USA's top safeties in Teja Young. Charlotte brings back much of its offense but a terrible 2021 defense lost three of its top four tacklers. I'm fine playing this solo, but I also have Northwestern +12.5 at -110 vs. Nebraska in Week Zero, so if you played the two games together on the ML you'd win about $155 on $100. Just saying ...
