Free NCAAF Pick:
The Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders have been competitive in their recent games as they won against Rice and FIU and lost by a combined 5 points to WKU and UTSA. The Blue Raiders have a very good QB in Alex O’Hara as he is a true dual-threat, and that has been on display this season as he leads MTSU in rushing yards and TDs (476 yards and 6 TDs). The Charlotte 49ers were destroyed by an average Duke team in their recent game as they allowed 53 points, but their offense has been fairly stagnant this season which is the reason for concern against the Blue Raiders as they can score in a hurry. Middle Tennessee has been much better after getting destroyed in their first 2 games, and they show that with a win here. Final Score Prediction, Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders win and cover ATS 31-28.
