Conference play is the theme of Week 7 of the 2022 NCAA college football season. The C-USA has a solid slate of games for the week, including a showdown between the Lousiana Tech Bulldogs and North Texas Mean Green.
Neither school has found much consistency this season, failing to win back-to-back games. However, that will change on Saturday as both Lousiana Tech and North Texas won their respective last outing. But which C-USA rival will increase their win streak to two?
Louisiana Tech vs North Texas Odds
According to FanDuel Sportsbook's college football odds, North Texas is a clear -250 favorite on the moneyline (6.5-point spread) in a game with a 67.5-point over/under.
What should college football fans expect in this matchup, and where can bettors find value?
Louisiana Tech vs North Texas Prediction and Best Bet
First of all, I'm expecting a lot of points here. Louisiana Tech is giving up a whopping 42.3 points per game (No. 127) while North Texas isn't much better, surrendering 38.2 PPG (No. 119).
That's a trend that extends to the C-USA rivals' all-time history. The last eight Louisiana Tech-North Texas matchups have seen an average total of 60.9 points, hitting over this week's 67.5-point total in four of the last seven collisions.
As far as the victor goes, it's hard to go against Louisiana Tech. The Bulldogs have won nine of their last 11 meetings against the Mean Green, with six of those victories coming by at least two possessions. That's on top of the fact that Louisiana Tech has never lost a road game to North Texas.
Taking the above into account, I'm comfortable with taking Lousiana Tech at +6.5 on the spread, as well as the total hitting over 67.5 points.
