The underdog is 8-2-1 against the spread in the last 11 meetings between Kent State and Miami of Ohio.

Miami has struggled this season, but there is no way to lay this type of number with Kent State, especially with how inconsistent they have been. Miami will find just enough offense to keep it close and cover the spread.
