Akron Zips vs James Madison Dukes prediction

The James Madison Dukes are going to get the benefit of the doubt because they're at home, but this line is a bit disrespectful toward the road team. The Akron Zips have been one of the better teams in the MAC this season, they've proven they can win on the road, and they have the offensive horses to give the Dukes some problems. This is a big game for both teams in terms of resume, and to think Akron can't hang around is a mistake. Should be a fun one. Give me Akron and the points.
