Point Spread: -23.50 | -110.00 Troy (Away)
I like Troy to cover the spread against Louisiana Monroe on Saturday. Troy has been playing well in their games this season, more specifically their defense. They have only allowed double digit points to 1 team this season in their loss to Liberty, and they only allowed 21 points in that game. LA-Monroe has only played in 2 games but they have looked awful in both. Their first game was a slaughter losing by 35 points against Kentucky. Their last game they won by 5 points, but it was against Jackson State, a team from the FCS that they should have pulled away from and won by a much larger margin. LA-Monroe just isn't that good though so those are the kinds of teams that are on their similar skill level. When Troy went up against a team from the FCS in their game, they won 55-3. Troy is the better team here and they have a good enough defense to stop LA-Monroe here. I expect Monroe to struggle to score points here as Troy pulls away making the gap larger and larger with every point they score. I like Troy to cover the spread here.
T.M. Prediction: 35-7 Troy.
