The action starts at Rice Stadium in Houston, Texas, where the Rice Owls welcome the Wake Forest Demon Deacons as 19-point underdogs. Rice lost at Army 14-7 in Week 1, while Wake Forest barely outlasted Utah State 38-35 at home.
These two schools met each other last year, and Wake Forest beat Rice 56-24 as a 28-point home fave. The Demon Deacons’ offense looked good in 2018, and they want to improve this season. Considering Week 1 performance, they are on the right path. On the other side, Rice showed plenty of offensive flaws against Army.

Wake Forest is 13-6 ATS in its last 19 outings on the road and 6-2-1 ATS in the previous nine versus the team with a losing record. On the other hand, Rice is 4-0 ATS in its last four contests overall and the previous four versus the team with a winning record.
The Demon Deacons should easily win this game, but a 19-point spread could be too much on the road. Therefore, I suggest you take a 7-point teaser and get Wake Forest at 12 points. Of course, you will need one more game, and I suggest Boise State over Marshal.
Virginia hosts William & Mary Tribe as a 34.5-points fave, while Arizona State is a 36-point favorite against Sacramento State. Hereof, there’s no reason to tease those massive favorites, and we’ve already talked about it.
On the other side, Boise State is a 12-point fave to beat Marshall. Likewise, this could be a thrilling battle decided by a touchdown, so it seems reasonable to tease the Broncos to five points.
Marshall opened with a convincing 56-17 victory to the VMI Keydets. The Thundering Herd’s offense put on a show, while Isaiah Green tossed for 238 yards and four touchdowns. However, VMI is not a proper benchmark, and Marshall will have a much taller task against the Broncos.
Boise State overcame an 18-point deficit to beat Florida State 36-31 on the road. Hank Bachmeier threw for 407 yards and a TD, while Robert Mahone tallied 142 rushing yards and two touchdowns. If they replicate this offensive performance, the Broncos should beat Marshall by six or more points.
The Broncos are 6-4 ATS in their last ten games at home and 4-1 ATS in the last five overall. The Thundering Herd are 1-4 ATS in their last five contests overall and 2-4 ATS in the previous six on the road. Also, Marshall is 1-4 ATS in its last five non-conference games.
The hosts’ defense will be a key factor for those who take them to cover. Marshall has offensive weapons that could make some damage, so I think teasing the Broncos along with the Demon Deacons is the best choice for Friday night.
