Why Bet On Miami (OH)?

Miami-Ohio might be in this year’s MAC championship, but there aren’t many reasons why any college football bettors would back the Redhawks in this contest. Yes, Miami-Ohio has won five of their last six games. The bad news however is that the Redhawks come into this title tilt off an embarrassing 41-27 blowout loss against Ball State last weekend. Miami-Ohio has also failed to cover the chalk in two straight and they are statistically inferior to Central Michigan on both sides of the ball.

Why Bet On Central Michigan?

There’s a reason why a whopping 79 percent of public bettors are already backing the Chippewas and it’s because central Michigan is the better team in all three phases of the game. Central Michigan has won three straight and six of their last seven including a statement-making 49-7 smackdown of Toledo last weekend as a 14.5-point home favorite.

The Chippewas have also covered the spread in three straight and six of their last seven while putting 45 points or more on the board in each of their last three games. Last, but not least, Central Michigan will also have some motivation going as they look to snap a two-game losing streak against the Redhawks.

Miami (OH) vs Central Michigan Expert Analysis and Prediction

With the way these two teams have looked recently, I’m completely and utterly stunned that central Michigan is just a seven-point favorite in this matchup. Not only have the Chippewas gone bonkers on offense the last three weeks, but they’ve also limited two of their last three opponents to 10 points or less. Central Michigan has also gone a perfect 8-0 ATS in their last 8 games after scoring more than 40 points in their previous game while going 5-1 ATS in their last 6 conference games. Miami-Ohio has gone 13-4 ATS in their last 17 conference games, but after last weekend’s blowout loss, I see no way the Redhawks get the upset win or cover the chalk!

Pick: Central Michigan 42 Miami-Ohio 21
