Shane’s Free Pick
This game is going to be lower scoring. Eastern Illinois struggled to score on Saturday and it’s going to be no different in this game. Miami’s last game against Coppin State they only gave up 48 points and they are going to lockdown here. Both of these offenses are going to really struggle here, and that will be the difference as this game is going to end up being lower scoring. Back the under.
