Buffalo (+1.5) at Ohio. Buffalo has played in three straight close games, including two in overtime, and this could be another one that comes down to the end. I like a team that is battled tested. And too, I think Buffalo has a more talented team than OU. Take the Bulls with the points.
Kent State (+7) at Bowling Green. Seven points? No way. BG can certainly win here, but it won t be by more than this margin. Kent, with its top-ranked running game, is a bad matchup for BG. Take the Flashes and the points.
Central Michigan (+2.5) at Indiana. I don t know what to make of CMU. The Chipps looked pretty good in beating WMU two weeks ago and followed that up with an ugly win at Toledo. Against a Big Ten opponent, I expect CMU to be at its best and possibly win. Take the Chipps and the points.
Eastern Michigan (+17) at Western Michigan. EMU typically plays well against the in-state MAC teams (the Eagles won the Michigan MAC championship last year, which is a laughable award at best). That being said, 17 points isn t certainly doable for a decent Western Michigan team. I like to Broncos to roll easily.
Temple (+7.5) at Navy. I don t like Temple s offense, and that s basically my entire reasoning for picking Navy to cover.
Against the spread
Last week: 3-2
