Against the Spread Pick
These conference foes are both struggling at the moment, but one of these teams looks a tiny bit better heading into Saturday night. Miami of Ohio is a rough 8-11 overall and 1-5 in their own conference, but dig a bit deeper, and the Redhawks are playing better of late. Between December 15th and December 30th, the team won three of four, with the lone loss coming against #3 Louisville. While they’ve dropped five of their last six, four of those losses were decided by less than 10 points (including a two-point loss to Bowling Green).
Over Under Pick
Meanwhile, there’s not as much optimism when it comes to Eastern Michigan. While the team started off hot with a 9-1 record, they’ve since lost eight of their last nine, including all six games against their conference rivals. The Eagles have also played their opponents tough, but the closer contests weren’t decided on the road.
