Fargo's MLB Wednesday Triple Play (136-97 MLB Run)
This is a play on the MILWAUKEE BREWERS as part of our MLB Wednesday Triple Play. For the next 12 days, every game is a playoff game for the Brewers as their loss last night dropped their lead in the National League Wild Card to two games over St. Louis. They are 3.5 games ahead of Colorado so nothing is safe at this point and with a six-game roadtrip looming against teams with winning records, this is a must have. Milwaukee is 20-7 in its 27 games as a home favorite of -125 to -175 this season while winning eight of its last nine games following a loss. The Reds are trying to play spoiler at this point as they are now 2-3 on this roadtrip thanks to solid pitching as the offense continues to struggle. They have scored three runs or less in each game while averaging just 1.4 rpg over the five games. Despite the win, Cincinnati has lost 21 of its last 28 road games. Matt Harvey has turned the corner as he has been pitching really well of late. He has posted three straight quality starts and he has allowed three runs or less in six of his last seven starts. The problem is the Reds have lost all four road starts with the offense being the culprit again, averaging 1.8 rpg. Gio Gonzalez had a solid opening start with the Brewers and while his second one was not nearly as good, this is a good bounceback spot against a struggling offense and he brings in a 2.61 ERA since joining Milwaukee. 8* (956) Milwaukee Brewers
This is a play on the ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS as part of our MLB Wednesday Triple Play. The Cubs offense erupted for nine runs last night ss they had the luxury of facing Matt Andriese who was making his first start since July 4 when he was with Tampa Bay. It was a rare outburst as the Chicago offense has been struggling, averaging just 2.8 rpg going into last night and it will be challenged tonight facing a left-handed starter. Arizona has now lost four straight games and 14 of its last 18 games as it has played itself into a situation where it cannot lose anymore. The Diamondbacks trail the Dodgers by six games in the American League West and are also six back in the Wild Card race but the good news is that the next six games are against Colorado and Los Angeles at home so ground can be made up quickly. Robbie Ray has the task of keeping the Cubs at bay and while he has been inconsistent this season, he has been pitching his best of late, posting a 2.74 ERA over his last eight starts including a 1.99 ERA in four home outings. Cole Hamels has been an excellent addition to the rotation but he has had the luxury of facing just one team that is vying for a playoff spot. Here, we play on home teams with a moneyline of -100 to -150 and with a winning percentage between .501 and .540 after having lost eight or more of their last 10 games, playing a winning team. This situation is 51-18 (73.9 percent) since 1997. 10* (960) Arizona Diamondbacks
This is a play on the NEW YORK YANKEES as part of our MLB Wednesday Triple Play. This line came out late as an opening line was not posted due to the fact Boston had a chance to clinch the American League East last night but failed to do so in the 3-2 loss. Clearly, the Red Sox are going to clinch the division but the goal for the Yankees is not to let it happen in their house and Boston has not exactly been dominant on the road, going 5-7 over its last 12 games and going back, the Red Sox are 0-5 in their last five road games against teams with a home winning percentage of greater than .600. The Yankees are pretty much assured of a Wild Card spot as they are eight games ahead of Tampa Bay but they need to keep winning as they are ahead of Oakland by just 2.5 games so they want to keep hold of the top spot. The Yankees are 58-23 in their last 81 home games against teams with a road winning percentage of greater than .600. Luis Severino was the early Cy Young favorite but he has been up and down over the last couple months but he loves these spots as the Yankees are 15-2 in his last 17 home starts against teams with a winning record. David Price has become everything Boston had hoped for as he has been pitching great. But he has been inconsistent on the road and facing New York has been a challenge. Since joining Boston, he has made 10 starts against the Yankees and has posted a dreadful 7.81 ERA including a 10.44 ERA in five starts at Yankee Stadium. 9* (970) New York Yankees
Fargo's 10* MLB Game of the Month (136-96 MLB Run)
This is a play on the ATLANTA BRAVES for our MLB Game of the Month. As soon as Mike Foltynewicz walked the bases loaded in the first inning last night, we knew we were in trouble and he put up his shortest and arguably the worst outing of the season. Despite the defeat and the third straight loss at home, the Braves inched closer to clinching the National League East as their magic number was reduced to seven when the Phillies lost to the Mets. Atlanta cannot solely rely other teams however as it has to get out of this funk with less than two weeks left in the regular season. Despite the loss last night, the Braves are 28-14 in their last 42 games against National League teams with an on base percentage .315 or worse. St. Louis moved into sole possession of the second Wild Card spot in the National League with Colorado losing, so each remaining game is big for the Cardinals as well. While the offense exploded last night, pitching remains a concern as they have allowed more than three runs in 13 of their last 16 games, giving up an average of 5.9 rpg. There have been several career resurgences this season from pitchers and Anibal Sanchez is part of that group. He has a 3.01 ERA through 19 starts and this is significant considering he posted a 5.67 ERA over the previous three season in Detroit over 88 starts. The Braves are 7-1 in his last eight starts when their opponent scores five runs or more in their previous game. Austin Gomber had a very good run going but got lit up for seven runs against the Dodgers last time out and he could be in trouble again here as Atlanta is hitting .271 against left-handed pitching this season which is third best in baseball. 10* (906) Atlanta Braves
Fargo's 10* NFL Monday Star Attraction (+$38,656)
This is a play on the CHICAGO BEARS for our NFL Monday Star Attraction. Chicago blew a big chance last week as it blew a 20-0 lead against Green Bay but it did show that the Bears have turned a corner after four straight miserable seasons where they have gone 19-45. The Bears are back in Chicago for their home opener as head coach Matt Nagy looks for his first victory. It has not been a good start for first year head coaches as they have gone a combined 2-11 heading into tonight but Chicago has a good matchup edge. The Seattle defense is in rough shape for tonight. Linebacker Bobby Wagner became the third Pro Bowl veteran ruled out tonight as he will miss with a groin injury and this is a big deal. Second-year free-agent Austin Calitro will start for Wagner and since he cannot play weakside linebacker Mychal Kendricks to play weakside linebacker against the Bears after just two practices with the team. Both starting cornerbacks are hurt and rookie right cornerback Tre Flowers is doubtful to play while they cut their starting defensive tackle Tom Johnson for concern with depth behind banged-up strong safety Bradley McDougald. The offense struggled last week against Denver as it managed only 306 total yards. The goal heading into this season was to run the ball better and Seattle managed only 64 yards on 16 carries and it will not get any easier on Monday night. The offensive line allowed six sacks and although a couple of those were on quarterback Russell Wilson for not throwing the ball away, it was clear right tackle Germain Ifedi was outclassed by linebacker Von Miller. Now comes Khalil Mack. The Bears offense was vertical in the first half but they pulled back in the second half for no apparent reason. Of 21 passing attempts after halftime, nine did not even cross the line of scrimmage while five more were within 5 yards of the line. The Bears need to open it back up. 10* (290) Chicago Bears
Fargo's MLB Monday Triple Play (136-93 MLB Run)
This is a play on the ATLANTA BRAVES as part of our MLB Monday Triple Play. The Braves lost their last two games over the weekend against the Nationals which followed a six-game winning streak that saw their lead improve to 7.5 games and now sits at 6.5 games over the Phillies. Surprisingly, home field has not been great this season as Atlanta is just two games over .500 here but it keeps the line within reason and this is a big series against another team fighting for the playoffs. St. Louis was able to salvage the series finale against the Dodgers to avoid the four-game sweep and pull back to even with Los Angeles for the final Wild Card spot in the National League. The Cardinals finally got some good pitching on Sunday as they came into yesterday allowing three runs or less just twice over their previous 15 games, allowing 5.9 rpg over that stretch. Atlanta turns to Mike Foltynewicz and he continues to dominate with a 2.66 ERA and 1.10 WHIP in 28 starts. He has allowed one run or less in six of his last seven starts and faces a Cardinals team that is 1-4 in their last five games vs. a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15. Miles Mikolas has put together a great season with a 2.99 ERA and 1.12 WHIP but he is starting to fade as he has a career high in innings and fatigue looks to be setting in. the Braves are 12-3 in their last 15 games against a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15. Here, we play on National League home favorites with a money line of -110 or higher that are hitting.255 to .269 with a starting pitcher whose ERA is 3.00 or better on the season going up against a starting pitcher with an ERA of 3.00 or better. This situation is 33-7 (82.5 percent) over the last five seasons. 9* (956) Atlanta Braves
This is a play on the ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS as part of our MLB Monday Triple Play. Arizona lost two of three in Houston after losing three of four in Colorado so it was not the roadtrip it envisioned and the Diamondbacks have not won a series since taking two games from the angels back on August 21 and 22. Arizona remains 4.5 games out of first place in the National League West and four games out of the second Wild Card spot. They have won 12 of 17 games after allowing five or more runs and the Diamondbacks are 10-4 in their last 14 home games following a road trip of seven or more days. The Cubs took their series with Cincinnati but did lose Sunday to remain 2.5 games ahead of the Brewers in the National League Central. The offense is struggling and Chicago is just 7-13 this season after batting .200 or worse in a three-game span. Patrick Corbin is having a very solid season with a 3.05 ERA and 1.03 WHIP in 30 starts, half of which have come at home and 10 of those resulted in quality outings. He has faced the Cubs at home twice and he allowed one run over 12.2 innings. He is third in the league in strikeouts and that is not ideal for a Chicago team that is showing no life on offense. The Cubs are 2-5 in their last seven games against left-handed starters. Kyle Henricks has been on a decent run but he has not looked great on the road with a 3.89 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in 14 starts. Here, we play on home favorites with a moneyline of -110 or higher starting a pitcher who walked one or fewer hitters each of his last two outings, with a struggling bullpen whose WHIP is over 2.00 the last five games. This situation is 43-6 (87.8 percent) over the last five seasons. 10* (960) Arizona Diamondbacks
This is a play on the KANSAS CITY ROYALS as part of our MLB Monday Triple Play. We lost with the Royals yesterday as Jakob Junis came up small by allowing three home runs in three innings before getting the hook. The now go from a slight home favorite to a large underdog and it is took much of an adjustment. Kansas City has been playing pretty well of late and the offense tore it up against Minnesota, averaging 7.5 rpg during the four-game series. The Royals are 9-3 in their last 12 games after scoring five runs or more in their previous game and they have won six of their last seven series openers. Pittsburgh has won two straight games to conclude a 3-3 roadtrip to remain at .500 and remain seven games out of the final Wild Card spot in the National League. The problem is there are only 14 games left and five teams are ahead of the Pirates so any chance of a playoff spot is gone. They are 3-7 in their last 10 games after allowing two runs or less in their previous game. Brad Keller has made 18 starts and he is by far the best starter in the rotation as he has a 3.04 ERA. Over his last six starts, he has allowed two runs or less in each and has a 1.85 ERA in those games with Kansas City winning five of those games. Joe Musgrove goes for the Pirates and he is having a solid season as well but has struggled of late with a 6.04 ERA over his last four starts. Kansas City falls into a great underdog situation where we play on American League underdogs that are hitting .265 or worse with a starting pitcher whose WHIP is 1.30 to 1.40 going up against a National League starting pitcher whose ERA is 3.70 to 4.20. This situation is 28-14 (66.7 percent) since 1997. 9* (973) Kansas City Royals
Fargo's 10* NFL Sunday Enforcer (SWEET +$37,871)
This is a play on the JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS for our Sunday NFL Enforcer. The Jaguars went to New York and took care of the Giants behind their powerful defense as they allowed just 324 total yards and 68 of those came on one play, a touchdown run by Saquon Barkley. The challenge will be tougher this week however but Jacksonville should be up for that challenge as it has had this game circled for eight months. The Jaguars have a chance to erase the bad feelings that came from a tough loss in the AFC Championship and they are well aware of the magnitude of this game. Jacksonville was second in the NFL last season in takeaways with 33 but it only had one in the last meeting and that is the key to winning or losing against New England. When the Patriots have a positive turnover differential in the Belichick era, they are 143-15 and when they lose the turnover battle, they are 37-42. The Jaguars style offensively and defensively gives them a chance to win this statistic no matter the opponent. More good news is that Jacksonville pass rusher Dante Fowler, who sacked Brady on two occasions in the AFC Championship, will make his season debut after sitting out the opener due to suspension for violation of the NFL's personal conduct policy. The Patriots were firing on all cylinders last week against Houston as the offense put up 389 yards of offense but it will be tougher heading out on the road in what is expected to be a tough environment. The defense played well also and while the Jacksonville offense is not going to put a scare into anybody, it is efficient and limits its mistakes. Quarterback Blake Bortles can extend plays and hurt defenses with his legs, as seen on his 41-yard run against New York last weekend. Jacksonville has covered seven straight games as an underdog going up against an opponent off a win. 10* (284) Jacksonville Jaguars
Fargo's MLB Sunday Triple Play (135-91 MLB Run)
This is a play on the COLORADO ROCKIES as part of our MLB Sunday Triple Play. With its second straight shutout loss, Colorado is now a half-game behind the surging Dodgers in the National League West but it still holds a half-game lead in the National League Wild Card over St. Louis. Even though this is a pitcher-friendly park, this lineup is too good to be held down and based on the pitching matchup, we are getting a ridiculously low price. The Rockies are 6-2 in their last eight games after losing the first two games of a series. The Giants have received two outstanding pitching performances from Chris Stratton and Madison Bumgarner and they could very well get another one today but it is impossible to ignore the fact that they have scored three runs or less in 10 straight games and 16 of their last 18 games. Dereck Rodriguez has had an outstanding rookie season and despite allowing three runs or less in four straight starts, the Giants have lost all four games due to no offense and a bullpen that allowed 13 runs. Antonio Senzatela has been pitching very well since the All Star break and has only one bad start in this stretch. The Rockies are 5-2 in his last seven starts after scoring two runs or less in their previous game. Here, we play against National League teams when the money line is +125 to -125 that are hitting .250 or worse and with a starting pitcher whose WHIP is 1.15 or better going up against a starting pitcher whose ERA is 4.20 to 5.20. This situation is 114-63 (64.4 percent) since 1997. 9* (911) Colorado Rockies
This is a play on the CHICAGO WHITE SOX as part of our MLB Sunday Triple Play. We won with the White Sox yesterday behind a strong pitching performance from Reynaldo Lopez and we will back them again today in another strong advantage but with another small number. Chicago has won three straight games and despite being 11 games under .500 on the road, the White Sox are 14-5 in their last 19 road games. The Orioles cannot wait for this season to end as they continue to showcase young players after falling a ridiculous 64 games under .500. they have lost eight of their last nine games and 12 of their last 14, averaging a mere 2.7 rpg. Lucas Giolito gets the ball for Chicago and while his numbers are gaudy, he has turned a corner thanks to a tweak in his mechanics and a renewed pitch sequence. Five of his last six starts have been quality outings and the White Sox are 7-1 in his last eight road starts against teams with a losing record. David Hess has shown some improvements as well but not to the same extent. He has made 16 starts and Baltimore has lost 13 of those with part of the problem being bad pitching and part of the problem being no run support. Chicago falls into a great situation where we play against American League teams averaging 4.2 rpg or worse with a starting pitcher whose ERA is 4.70 to 5.20 going up against a starting pitcher whose ERA is 5.70 to 6.20. This situation is 38-13 (74.5 percent) since 1997. 9* (913) Chicago White Sox
This is a play on the KANSAS CITY ROYALS as part of our MLB Sunday Triple Play. While this could typically qualify for a contrarian play based on the Royals having won the first four gamers of this series, we will back Kansas City to get the sweep as the price is too good in this matchup. The Royals have won five of their last six games and 14 of their last 20, They will be trying to close out their first four-game sweep since taking four straight from the Twins in August of 2016. Minnesota are now 4-10 in September and with the exception of two 10-run outbursts, it has averaged 2.7 rpg in the other 12 games. The Twins are 8-21 in their last 29 road games against teams with a home winning percentage of less than .400. Jakob Junis has been dealing as he has a 1.88 ERA and 0.62 WHIP in his last three starts and he has allowed two runs or less in seven straight outings. Kyle Gibson has had a solid season for Minnesota but he has been inconsistent of late and he has taken the loss in four straight games. He is getting just 3.1 rpg of support on the road and the Twins are 4-11 in his last 15 starts after allowing five runs or more in their previous game. Kansas City falls into a solid situation as we play on American League home teams when the money line is +125 to -125 with a starting pitcher whose ERA is 4.20 to 4.70 on the season but with a recent WHIP of 1.00 or better over his last five starts. This situation is 39-12 (76.5 percent) since 1997. 10* (922) Kansas City Royals
Fargo's NFL Sunday 1:00 Trifecta AWESOME +$37,871
This is a play on the ATLANTA FALCONS as part of our Sunday NFL Trifecta. Atlanta came up pretty small last week in Philadelphia but we like the Falcons to bounce back this week as they are coming off a mini bye and will be desperate to not open up the season 0-2. The Falcons actually outgained the Eagles by 67 yards but they were unable to execute when needed. Atlanta's offense managed just nine points in five redzone trips, failing on a fourth-and-1 on the opening possession and coming up empty again on the final drive where they could have won the game. Matt Ryan outplayed Nick Foles but failed to get it done late for the second straight game against the Eagles, the first coming in the Divisional Playoffs last season. The Falcons were just 5-3 at home last season but are historically good and they have defeated the Panthers here in each of the last three years. Carolina is coming off an ugly win over Dallas as it had a 16-0 lead before allowing a touchdown midway through the fourth quarter and was able to hold on. The defense was great but it was partly due to the Cowboys offensive line playing awful as they allowed six sacks and Ezekiel Elliott rushed for just 69 yards. However, offensively things were not great as the Panthers managed only 293 total yards and they got more bad news as the team placed starting right tackle Daryl Williams on injured reserve, where he joined starting left tackle Matt Kalil. That is not a good situation against a strong Falcons pass rush. We should expect to see a more balanced attack from the Falcons as they ran the ball just 18 times and they are 7-1 ATS in their last eight games after accumulating less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game. Ryan has lost only one home opener in his career and we expect that to continue here. 9* (264) Atlanta Falcons
This is a play on the HOUSTON TEXANS as part of our Sunday NFL Trifecta. We were on the Texans last week and as soon as Deshawn Watson lost a fumble on the first snap of their first possession, you knew it was not going to happen. They did end up making it a game by scoring with two minutes left but failed to stay within the number. Expectations are high in Houston and starting out the season 0-2 is not in the cards and it cannot afford a loss here against the team picked to finish last in the AFC South. Watson called his play against the Patriots terrible but it was not that bad and now he has a chance to redeem himself. Houston coach Bill O'Brien said he is hopeful wide receiver Will Fuller, who missed the season opener with a hamstring injury, will return. Fuller had a big game last season against Tennessee in his return from a broken collarbone, catching two touchdown passes from Watson. The Patriots were able to key on DeAndre Hopkins last week so getting another big play receiver back is big. Last season in the four games Watson and Fuller played together, Fuller caught seven touchdown passes. Tennessee is going to struggle on offense. On Friday, Titans coach Mike Vrabel said he expects both quarterbacks Marcus Mariota and Blaine Gabbert to play on Sunday and that is not a good thing. Protecting them from the ferocious Houston pass rush is already going to be a problem and making matters worse, the offensive line is already banged up. Starting left tackle Taylor Lewan has been ruled out for the game, along with Jack Conklin. Dennis Kelly did not practice two days this week, and his status is uncertain. Losing tight end Delanie Walker for the season is a huge blow. Here, we play against home teams where the line is +3 to -3 coming off a road loss, in September games. This situation is 105-61 ATS (63.3 percent) since 1983. 9* (269) Houston Texans
This is a play on the PITTSBURGH STEELERS as part of our Sunday NFL Trifecta. The Steelers put up a dud last week in Cleveland as we expected and ended up finishing in a 21-21 tie. It was definitely better than a loss but the Steelers looked inept at times on offense as they committed six turnover including three interceptions by Ben Roethlisberger. That was the main factor as they outgained the Browns by 145 total yards but came away with little from it. Heading home is a very good thing to prove what they are made of and they are in for a challenge and that is a good thing. We can expect different play calling this week as well. The Steelers became passive, and Randy Fichtner's play-calling shifted from a game plan designed to attack the Browns to one playing not to lose. Pittsburgh was fine defensively as linebacker T.J. Watt was a beast against the Browns. He had four sacks and a team-high eight tackles. Watt also preserved the tie by blocking the potential game-winning field goal by Cleveland in overtime. The Chiefs went to Los Angeles and put it to the Chargers but expect a much different atmosphere this week in Pittsburgh where over 60,000 fans will be in full force compared to the just over 25,000 fans in attendance last week in the StubHub Center. While Kansas City won by 10 points, special teams was the difference as the Chiefs were actually outgained by 179 total yards so it was a misleading final. The Chiefs defense did not play well against the Chargers as they allowed 7.3 yppl, the third worst average by any team from last week. They will be shorthanded again as well as safety Eric Berry remained on the sidelines at practice with a sore heel and has been ruled out as has linebacker Ben Niemann with a hamstring injury. Pittsburgh is 12-3 ATS in its last 15 home games after gaining 450 or more total yards in their previous game. 9* (272) Pittsburgh Steelers
Fargo's 10* NFL Game of the Week (EPIC +$37,871)
This is a play on the INDIANAPOLIS COLTS for our NFL Game of the Week. One of the takeaways from Week One into Week Two is overreaction from the first game of the season. That is represented in several lines this week with this being one of those. The Colts are coming off a loss in the first game back for Andrew Luck as they were defeated by the Bengals by 11 points but it was misleading. Indianapolis was driving late in the fourth quarter down four points but tight end Jack Doyle fumbled the ball and Cincinnati returned it for a touchdown. The Colts outgained the Bengals by 50 yards but because of the loss and the big Washington win, the early line from last week of -3 went up to -5 at the true open and has gone up even more since then. While Luck may not be 100 percent in his comeback, he played well last week and this has been a great spot throughout his career as the Colts are 22-6 ATS when coming off a loss with Luck at quarterback. Washington was very impressive against Arizona in its opener as it outgained the Cardinals by 216 yards and held them to just six points which was a garbage touchdown with five minutes left with the score at 24-0. Again, an overreaction to one game and while the Redskins did dominate, doing it again seems unlikely even though they do head home. Most impressive was the fact they ran for 182 yards on 42 carries (4.3 ypg) which caused them to hold the ball for over 17 more minutes than the Cardinals. That being said, playing out west in the opener was a disadvantage because of travel to and from. The Redskins are 0-4 ATS in their last four games after allowing less than 250 total yards in their previous game while the Colts are 4-0 ATS in their last four games following a double-digit loss at home. 10* (261) Indianapolis Colts

Fargo's CFB Game of the Week (+$16,330 L5+ Years)
This is a play on the UTAH UTES for our CFB Game of the Week. Washington lost its opener against Auburn which took place in Atlanta and it was a poor performance from the offense. Granted, the Tigers possess a strong defense but the stop unit the Huskies face this week is no slouch either as the Utes are ranked No. 1 in the nation in total defense. The Huskies bounced back with a 42-point win over North Dakota last week but it was not overly impressive as they made plays when they should have, but it was far from the crisp domination expected from a top-10 team facing an FCS opponent. Washington has struggled running the ball and it will be difficult getting it going this week against a Utah defense that allowed 117 yards rushing to Northern Illinois last week, but only 2.7 ypc. The Utah offense has been vanilla in their two wins and while it is not exotic, there will be a few new wrinkles that the Huskies have not seen. The offensive line needs to be better after allowing six sacks last week but this is an experienced unit that brought back four starters, three of which are seniors with the other two being juniors. One aspect of the offense that goes unnoticed is the offensive coordinator. Troy Taylor is in his second year which is big as when he arrived at Utah he was the ninth offensive coordinator in ten years so no turnover is important. Washington is 4-14 ATS in its last 18 road games after allowing nine points or less last game while Utah is 15-3 ATS in its last 18 games after allowing 275 or fewer total yards in two consecutive games. Additionally, we play against road favorites of 3.5 to 10 points in a game involving two teams outgaining opponents by 100 or more ypg, after gaining 6.25 or more yppl in their previous game. This situation is 54-22 ATS (71.1 percent) since 1992. 10* (206) Utah Utes

Fargo's CFB Saturday Ultimate Underdog
This is a play on the LOUISIANA-MONROE WARHAWKS for our CFB Ultimate Underdog. Texas A&M cannot be in a worst spot here as the Aggies are in a sandwich with the bread consisting of the two national championship contenders from the last three seasons, Clemson and Alabama. Recovering from last week will be a challenge for the Aggies as they had a chance to tie the game against the Tigers but failed on a two-point conversion with less than a minute remaining. This followed a 52-point win over an FCS creampuff and while they would normally name the score here, there my be some focus issues. While Louisiana-Monroe is coming off a second straight 4-8 season, the Warhawks are expected to contend in the SBC West as they bring back 17 starters. They squeezed past Southern Mississippi last Saturday with a 21-20 upset road win. It was the first time ULM had downed its regional rival since 1987. The Warhawks possess a potent offense that is currently ranked No. 47 in the nation with 454 ypg which is four ypg shy of what they averaged last season. Quarterback Caleb Evans is athletic and does a good job of making reads at the second level of a defense. The unit has been functional and avoided turnovers while the Aggies have not forced any turnovers so far and do not generate a lot of pressure. The Aggies biggest problem so far this year has been allowing big plays due to a combination of coverage issues and tackling. Here, we play on road underdogs in a game involving two good rushing teams, both outrushing opponents by 50 or more ypg, after allowing 75 or fewer rushing yards last game. This situation is 36-11 ATS (76.6 percent) over the last five seasons. 9* (197) Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks
