Ohio vs Louisiana Lafayette betting preview

The Ohio Bobcats come into this game off a horrible start to their 2021 season. They now sit 0-2 after loses to Syracuse, 29-9 in their opener then on Saturday to Duquesne 28-26.

For everyone that’s never heard of the Duquesne Dukes, it’s because they’re an FCS school and they managed to pull off the huge upset as a 29.5 point underdog, so congratulations to them.

Quarterback Levi Lewis over the last two games has went for 64.4% completions for 586 total yards, touchdowns and 0 interceptions.

Ohio has a pretty decent secondary, that’s why the key to covering this spread with be that trifecta in the backfield.
