Click Here for the Latest Odds

The Akron Zips will play the Ohio Bobcats in a MAC Game on Saturday afternoon at Peden Stadium in Athens, Ohio.

The Akron Zips are 1-4 (0-1) this season after they lost to Bowling Green by a score of 31-28 in Week 5. Akron gained 408 total yards, but turned the ball over three times in the loss. The Akron offense is averaging 15.2 points per game with 244.6 passing yards per game and 78.2 rushing yards per game. DJ Irons has thrown for 1,143 yards, six touchdowns, and two interceptions, while also rushing for 152 yards for the Zips this season. Cam Wiley has rushed for 178 yards and two touchdowns, while Shocky Jacques-Louis has caught 26 passes for 357 yards and one touchdown for Akron. The Akron defense is giving up 38 points per game and 471.2 yards per game.

The Ohio Bobcats are 2-3 (0-1) this season after they lost to Kent State in overtime by a score of 31-24 in their last game. Ohio led this game 17-10 in the fourth quarter, but was unable to hold the lead and did not score in overtime for the loss. The Ohio offense is averaging 28.8 points per game with 315.4 passing yards per game and 107.6 rushing yards per game. Kurtis Rourke has thrown for 1.517 yards, 11 touchdowns, and two interceptions, while also rushing for 69 yards and two touchdowns for the Bobcats this season. Sieh Bangura has rushed for 266 yards and two scores, while Sam Wiglusz has caught 28 passes for 290 yards and three touchdowns for Ohio. The Ohio defense is allowing 42 points per game and 577.8 yards per game.

Akron is 10-21 ATS in their last 31 conference games and 10-25 ATS in their last 35 games. The over is 8-3 in Akron’s last 11 road games. Ohio is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 conference games and 4-12 ATS in their last 16 home games. The over is 4-0 in Ohio’s last 4 home games. The road team is 4-0 ATS in these two teams last 4 head to head meetings.

Both of these teams are looking for their first conference win after struggling to start the season. Ohio is allowing 577 yards per game, but Akron’s offense has not played well. The Ohio offense did score 59 points against Fordham two weeks ago, but only score 24 points last week. I like Akron in this game, as I can’t trust the Ohio defense.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
