The Minutemen are 6-20 ATS in their last 26 road games and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Eagles are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The under is 5-2 in Minutemen last 7 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Eagles last 5 games overall.
The Umass Minutemen are in the running for one of the worst teams in the country, and they've done nothing against the number dating back to last season. The Eastern Michigan Eagles easily play their best ball at home, and they've shown head and shoulders more signs of life on the offensive side. While you may not think highly of Eastern Michigan, oddsmakers are telling you just how bad UMass is with this line. I have no choice but to lay the three touchdowns.
