College Football Betting Preview: Akron Zips vs. E. Michigan Eagles
November 14, 2023
A pair of MAC teams will kick off week 12 of the college football season when the Akron Zips travel to Ypsilanti, Michigan to face the Eastern Michigan Eagles at Rynearson Stadium with the game scheduled for 7:00 PM ET and will air on the CBS Sports Network on Tuesday evening.
Akron has already been eliminated from bowl game contention and may finish the season with double-digit losses as their final two games of the season are coming against the Eastern Michigan Eagles and the Ohio Bobcats both of which the Zips will be underdogs against and they enter this game with a record of 2-8 which includes a 1-5 record in MAC play. The Akron Zips are coming off a 0-19 loss on the road against the Miami Ohio RedHawks in which they were outgained 212 to 236 total yards offensively and were -1 in the turnover battle.
The Eastern Michigan Eagles have to win their remaining two games this season to qualify for a bowl game as they enter this game with a record of 4-6 and have a record of 2-4 in the MAC Conference following a 23-49 loss on the road against the Toledo Rockets which was also their 3
loss in a row. The Eagles were outgained 255 to 506 total yards offensively but despite the loss they were +1 in the turnover battle. The defense along with their passing offense played a pivotal role in the loss as they allowed 49 points on defense and Austin Smith only completed 9 of 24 attempts for 86 yards and an interception, however, things should be easier for the defense when they host the Akron Zips on Tuesday evening as Akron is only averaging 15.4 points per game which is the 2
lowest average in college football this season.
BookMaker has the Eastern Michigan Eagles listed as 4-point favorites at home against the Akron Zips on Tuesday evening in week 12 of the college football season. The teams are 5-5 in the last ten meetings while Eastern Michigan has won the previous three matchups in a row. The Eagles are 6-3-1 ATS in the last ten and 2-1 ATS in the last three games in the series. The Akron Zips are 3-6-1 ATS overall, 3-3 ATS on the road, 3-4 ATS as an underdog, and 1-4-1 ATS in conference games this season while the Eastern Michigan Eagles are 5-5 ATS overall, 2-3 ATS at home, 2-2 ATS as a favorite, and 4-2 ATS in conference games on the year.
Eastern Michigan has been the better team this season, despite entering this game on a three-game losing streak. The Akron Zips have only one win in conference play and have lost the last three meetings in the series while going 3-6-1 ATS in the last ten and 1-2 ATS in the last three matchups. The Eagles have also been the better team at covering the spread in conference games this season as they are 4-2 ATS in conference games while the Zips are 1-4-1 ATS in conference games which is why I am laying the points with the Eastern Michigan Eagles when they host the Akron Zips on Tuesday evening.
Spooky Express Pick: Eastern Michigan Eagles -4
