The Eastern Michigan Eagles and Akron Zips face off on Tuesday in some MACtion college football showdown at InfoCision Stadium. Eastern Michigan has won the last two games over Akron.
Eastern Michigan comes into this game with a 5-4 record overall, and they have gone 4-5 against the spread. Eastern Michigan’s last game came against Toledo, and the offense scored 24 points, but the defense gave up 27 points on the way to the loss. Taylor Powell and Austin Smith both took snaps under center. Powell completed 9 of his 17 passes for 61 yards, zero touchdowns, and one interception. Samson Evans did have a big game, rushing 24 times for 88 yards and two touchdowns. Eastern Michigan is averaging 27 points, while their defense is giving up 30.2 points per game.
On the other side of this matchup is the Akron Zips, who sit with a 1-8 record, and they have gone 4-5 against the spread. In the last game against the Miami Redhawks, the offense only managed nine points, and that led to the defeat. Under center for Akron is DJ Irons, and he completed 31 of his 49 passes for 316 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. He also rushed 14 times for 58 yards. Akron is averaging 18.6 points, while their defense is giving up 37 points per game.
Eastern Michigan is 28-12 against the spread in their last 40 road games. Akron is 17-35 against the spread in their last 52 games overall. Akron is 2-6 against the spread in their last seven games against a team with a winning record. The Eagles are 5-0 against the spread in their last five meetings in Akron.
Irons looked good in his last game for Akron, but I’m not sold he’s consistent enough to find success again in this game. Akron’s offense is going to struggle to move the ball here, and that will be the difference, as Eastern Michigan is going to have a big game. Evans will have a strong game on the ground, and the Eagles will cover the spread. Back Eastern Michigan against the spread.
