Who cares about the line, except betters!† If we win by 2 points this week are we going to have a thread that says we won but we didn't cover?† Probably.

Actually if FAU wins, we do cover because Troy is favored by 9.5 points :)

It's a good indication on confidence since money is attached to it, but:

If we win, we will celebrate!

BIG TIME!

The reason why it's important, even if you aren't interested in partaking in some wagering, is that Vegas employs people who spend their entire lives setting the spread on games and 99% of the time, they have it perfect. So those numbers give you a true estimate of how we'll win or lose, without our rosť colored glasses.

FAU hasn't been favored in a game since Wagner ( we were -6) and were 1-6…they know what they're doing.

From Big D's most recent: "FAU's last Sun Belt win was a 24-23 home victory over Louisiana-Monroe on Nov. 13, 2010, at Lockhart Stadium. FAU has lost 20 of its last 22 contests."

Holy cow, I didn't realize that we are as bad as FIU was a few years ago. That is just brutal.
