Hens a 3.5-point favorite.

First time as a road favorite this season.

Hens 2-0 vs. spread on the road in 2019.

That should be a low spread.

We’ve seen the past two seasons DR and staff make tweaks and adjustments during the bye week. Elon is the time to take another step forward. Go Hens!

Really looking forward to seeing what these coaches come up with this week.

Also, consider there probably wasn't a ton of recruiting during the bye with all the verbals we have in place.

Hopefully we start to see pressure on the QB. I do think it's a big factor this week!

It will be a challenge for sure..The last 2 teams did it to them despite their quick passing offense≥.We need to shut down their running game and force them to throw...Then we have to come up w at least occasional pressure...We also have to do a better at picking up blitzing backers and safety's....I still see us rushing 3 on obvious passing downs...I hope mI am wrong..Knight will play more once he gets better at protection on these Blitzers....

Saw a statistic from Stats FCS Twitter that 8 of 13 CAA league games thus far have been won by the road team. Also 8 of those 13 teams have been decided by 8 points or less. I like Rocco's track record having his teams prepared to perform coming out of the rest week. I don't expect us to flop by any stretch, but think the likelihood of us winning by 4 or more is pretty thin. I dont like the -3.5 road favorite much. If it's available I might just play the Hens to win straight up and lose the ROI on my bet but still make a little bit win my squad. Will wait and see what's offered leading up to gametime on Saturday.
V for Villanova, V for veritable certainty of victory over Delaware.

I dont use 5 dimes. Only one in PA I've seen post a ML yet is Fox and theyre at -188. That's worse that I'm willing to go with and Fox seems to typically have the worst prices. Parx and Sugarhouse use the same oddsmaker and only have the -3.5 spread as of yet. Fanduel doesnt have us up yet. I may end up taking the points if nothing more attractive shows up.

I don't play the money line at all...On the other hand my buddy only plays it Think of the house take...If you bet 100 on UD at -180 and they blow you pay 180 of Course. If Joe Blow bets 100 on Elon he collects 140...House makes 40 bucks...Crazy......
