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.

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.
