    Saturday, October 12th
    Richmond +14.5 @ Maine
    Jacksonville St. -12.5 @ E. Illinois
    Drake -13 @ Butler
    San Diego -9 @ Davidson
    Villanova +11.5 @ James Madison
    Samford -7 @ VMI
    Delaware -3.5 @ Elon
    W. Carolina +17 @ The Citadel
    Lamar +17 @ Sam Houston St.
    Murray St. -5 @ Tenn. St.
    Charleston So. +24 @ Kennesaw St.
    SEMO -2.5 @ Austin Peay
    UND +1.5 @ Idaho St.
    Albany +11 @ Towson
    N'Western St. +23 @ Nicholls St.
    CS Sacramento +1.5 @ Montana St.
    N. Colorado +19.5 @ E. Washington
    Idaho +1.5 @ Portland St.
    McNeese +7 @ Central Arkansas
    Incarnate Word +13 @ SELA
    New Hampshire +4.5 @ Stony Brook
    Tenn. Martin -6.5 @ Tenn. Tech
    Cal Poly +13.5 @ UC Davis
    Houston Baptist +7 @ Abilene Christian


    MVFC
    UNI +19 @ NDSU
    Western Illinois +6 @ Indiana St.
    USD -7.5 @ Missouri St.
    SDSU -7 @ Youngstown St.
    Illinois St. +2.5 @ S. Illinois

    Some lines that pop out to me right away. Villanova getting 11.5 points seems a little high, I would have expected something closer to 7.5 to 9. Illinois St. getting 2.5 points vs SIU surprised me. Maybe the Redbirds aren't who we thought they were. UNI getting 19 also seemed high to me, I was expecting that to open in the 15 point range, they always play NDSU tough.
    I think SIU takes the Redbirds at home. ISUR looked inept against NDSU, and I thought SIU looked better than anticipated.

    I also think UNI covers, but loses. I'd also look for UNH to upset Stony Brook after their OT game with JMU last week and Sac State to upset the Bobcats in Bozeman. The USD line looks a little low to me given last week's result, but MSU isn't a complete dumpster fire, and USD doesn't play well outside typically. I still think they win by 10+.

    The Jacks spread is probably abut right, IF the team plays to their potential. If they're going to come out slow again and have difficulties moving the ball, I think that spread should be more like SDSU +4.5. I think this game is the one where it either all comes together and we win by 14+, or it continues to be a disjointed effort and we get beat.

    Already quite a bit of action already on the Villanova/JMU game, in just five hours after the lines opened, JMU has gone from -11.5 to -9.5.

    Hope you don't have money on that...
    Specifically, the way I see it is with the lines.
    I think we find out that USD IS the paper tiger.
    SIU beating YSU would be a large Upset IMO even if the line doesn't show that.

    I get where you are coming from, but I dont take chalk. Not my style haha. If I can go 3-2 that makes me a winner, so thats what im shooting for.

    Looks like SIU is a legit playoff contender, even at 3-4. If they can get past USD this weekend. They have a very good chance at 7-5.
