Akron is 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a win. The over is 10-4 in Akron’s last 14 road games. Buffalo is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 Friday games and 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 home games. The over is 4-0 in Buffalo’s last 4 games, and the over is 6-2-1 in their last 9 Friday games.

Buffalo comes into this game searching for their sixth win of the season, which would give them bowl eligibility. The Bulls have lost three games in a row, but welcome in an Akron team that has won two games this year. Akron has played better in the second half of the season, but their offense is only averaging 21 points per game. I am going to take Buffalo in this game, as they are the only team playing for something.
