5Dimes released their college football team-by-team over/under in wins, so lets see how the Conference USA matches up!

Team Wins Over/Under
Charlotte 2.5
Florida Atlantic 5
Florida International 6
Louisiana Tech 8
Marshall 10
North Texas 5
Old Dominion 4.5
Rice 7
Southern Miss 4.5
UTEP 6
UTSA 2.5
Western Kentucky 7
UAB :(

Well...that's interesting.  Now that we have those numbers, what do we do with them? Gamble, of course!

OVER

UTSA - You have to like Larry Coker and the Roadrunners sitting at 2.5.  Even in a down season last year, the Meepers went 4-8.  Take the over.

Louisiana Tech - The Bulldogs have a decent OOC schedule, but should be able to run through their conference schedules with no problem.

WKU - With Brandon Doughty at the helm, do you really think the Hilltoppers are going to win only seven games? Yeah, me neither.

UNDER

F_U - Whether it's the Owls or the Panthers, these two teams have not been remotely good enough for me to consider the overs on their predicted wins.

Marshall - They return Devon Johnson, but the Herd lose Rakeem Cato and top-receiver Tommy Shuler.  They also lose significant numbers on the defensive side.  This will be a good team, but 10 wins might be a stretch.

PUSH

North Texas - The Mean Green are either decent or awful and with that being said, five wins is a reasonable number to get hung up on.  Instead of going over or under, I'm going to say "push" and leave it alone.

EVERYONE ELSE

If you haven't been reading Bill C's team-by-team preview then you're a bad person and I have nothing else to say to you.  If you have been, and have followed these teams you'll realize that Vegas is pretty spot on.  Just how will Charlotte survive in its first year of FBS?  While ODU went 6-6 in their first year of FBS, it's very possible that the Monarchs could go 7-5 or 4-8 and that's just not worth gambling on.  Rice has been hit and miss under David Bailiff and who knows what's going to come out of Sean Kugler's Miners in Year 3.  Finally, it wasn't all that long ago when Larry Fedora had the Golden Eagles dominating the CUSA, and finally Todd Monken is looking to turn things around in Hattiesburg: but can Southern Miss get to a bowl game?

Who do you have for the over and under on wins? Let us know in the comments!
