Although the RedHawks are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games, there is nothing convincing me to lay this many points with Akron. The Zips are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall and are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Friday games. The Zips are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games vs. a team with a losing straight up record. I’ll back the Redhawks in this one.
