Against The Spread Pick
One of the MAC’s best teams heads on the road, as the Akron Zips square off with the struggling Western Michigan Broncos. The Zips have won three games in a row en route to their second match-up with the Broncos this season. Western Michigan is 3-7 in their last 10 games. The Zips have covered the spread in eight of their last 12 games while the Broncos are just 2-5 ATS in their last seven games. Akron has won each of the last two head-to-head meetings by double-digit margins. The Zips are too hard to pass on. Take Akron to cover 8.5 points.
Over Under Pick
Akron’s last visit to Read Fieldhouse resulted in a tough back and forth match-up as the Zips escaped with a 79-78 victory. The teams combined for 157-total points in that game. Their last two meetings have quite lived up to that expectation. Both teams are averaging over 70 points per game, but an under 142-point total is still the right play to back.
