Las Vegas - UMass? UKidding? Florida Atlantic is favored by 33 points over Massachusetts, and we think that's CHEAP. Why? Check out the Minutemen's two games this season, and their work at the end of last year. They opened up 2020 eating a 41-0 bagel at Georgia Southern, then followed with a 51-10 loss at Marshall. Last season, they closed with seven straight losses. Came up just a little short against Florida International, getting bageled 44-0. Then it was a little short again, losing to Louisiana Tech 69-21. Connecticut walked off with a 56-35 win, the closest Mass came to a W. Liberty posted a 63-21 win, Army eased past the Minutemen, 63-7, Northwestern coasted to a 45-6 win and BYU came to town and recorded a 56-24 victory. My calculator tells me that UMass scored 124 points and allowed 488. Did I say FOUR HUNDRED EIGHTY EIGHT? Sure did. They were outscored by 364 points which works out to an average of 40 points per game. So, once again, think the 33 point spread is CHEAP! Gimme the Owls from Boca!
