The RedHawks are 15-5 ATS in their last 20 conference games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Zips are 7-21 ATS in their last 28 games overall and just 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games following a ATS loss.

Miami (OH) is coming off a tough loss at Buffalo, but the RedHawks should be able to get back on track against an Akron defense that ranks dead last in College Football in scoring defense and 120th in total defense. Akron has a great RB in Teon Dollard, however, as I think the Zips will once again give up at least 45 points in this one, I think the play here is to take the RedHawks to cover this spread. Good Luck!
