Locks of the day
Akron Team Total Under 14.5 (2.5 units)
Simply put, Akron is not very good at football. Let me take you through their points scored from their last 8 games (dating back to 2019) 13, 3 (against Ohio), 17, 14, 6, 0, 0, 3. Any bet that has cashed on a team 7 of the last 8 games seems like something I’ll throw money on. Akron’s Quarterback has played 5 career games and has a total of 2 Touchdowns. I like my odds here even if the bet is -140.
Kent State -20.5 (2 units)
Bowling Green stinks. Their Quarterback was 8-30 for 128 yards and 2 picks, and I don’t see that changing much here. Kent State is a team that puts up points, but their defense is usually the issue. In this case however, I don’t see the Bowling Green Offense giving them too much of a problem. Last year Kent put up 62 on this Bowling Green Defense. I’m expecting a blowout here.
Picks I love
Miami Ohio + 10 (1.5 units)
Although Buffalo is coming off of a big win against NIU, we have to remember that Buffalo scored 21 points on defense, including two fumble returns for Touchdowns. Miami’s Running Back, Davion Johnson has never lost a fumble, so I don’t expect that to be much of a problem. The biggest question for Miami is their Sophomore Quarterback A.J Mayer, but he looked great in his debut with 212 yards and 3 touchdowns. Miami is a top talent in the MAC and I like getting 10 points here. Consider Buying this up to 10.5 if you’re feeling safe.
Kent State Team Total Over 38.5 (1.5 units)
See Above. I expect the Kent State Offense to roll this Bowling Green Defense.
Ohio – 27.5 (1 unit)
As I mentioned before, I don’t expect the Akron team to be able to score. However, this is a very high number. I still look at the Ohio team to win by a large margin, but I would feel much better if it was a bit lower. I still think this hits but not as easily as the others.
Teaser of The Night
Miami +17, Kent -13.5, Ohio -20.5 (1.5 units)
I choose a 7-point Teaser Here because of the numbers it gives me at +130 odds, but I don’t hate this as a 6.5-point teaser at +150 either. Make sure you check how your book handles pushes and make your call there.
Good Luck to everyone tailing. If you choose to fade, well, I hope you lose. Let’s make some money here and most of all let’s enjoy some Tuesday night Maction.
