What I saw from FAU last week makes me believe they are not the same Owl teams we have gotten accustomed too since Schnelly left, but closer to a team that is growing toward better things.
Again, local lean here but 3 TDs seems a bit steep, and with the focus on the NFL opener, I think there is a good value play here on the Owls. The sensible hedge would be an Over play, thinking FAU should move the ball and score 3-4 times, so if they put up 21-28 points, to lose your side ECU would have to get into the 40's (which is possible of course). I think there is a better chance of winning both then losing both.
I must admit that I do not know much about FAU. I will take your opinion about the coach for FAU. I did hear that Vs Miami his QB spike the ball on 4 down at the end of the game. There no way the QB did that without the coach telling him too. If this is true I DO NOT LIKE THAT AT ALL !!!!! That's something that make me a little nervous if the OVER is a touchdown away and FAU has the ball at the end of the 4 quarter.
