Best Bet: Central Michigan +3 (FanDuel)

The Chippewas picked up their 5th win on the season last week over Northern Illinois 37-31. The win put CMU a game over .500. The run game was unstoppable last week with Marion Lukes taking 21 carries for 202 yards and a score while Jase Bauer scored twice and ran for 106 on 20 carries.

Bauer was much more effective on the ground than through the air. He finished with 116 passing yards on 9 of 16 passing. The defense was strong on 3rd down and did not allow a single conversion by the Huskies as they finished 0-10 on 3rd down. The 3 turnovers the Chippewas forced were also key in their victory as they held onto the ball and did not commit a turnover themselves.

Western Michigan also won their last game but are far from .500 as they sit at just 3-6 on the year. They were on the road in Eastern Michigan in their last game and picked up a 45-21 win. They won the turnover battle 4-1 and held the EMU run game to just 28 yards on the ground.

Jalen Buckley scampered for 138 yards on 25 carries and scored twice. That run game ranks 74th in the country as WMU is averaging over 170 yards per game rushing.

We like the Chippewas to come out here on the road and pick up the outright win. Jase Bauer seems to have figured out that he is more of a threat with his legs than his arm and that makes this CMU team dangerous.

Recent history has proven that the Chippewas can be successful here on the road at WMU. That continues here and CMU will win the battle of the trenches.

Key Trends:

  • CMU is 17-5 ATS in their last 22 games played in November.
  • CMU is 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games played in week 11.
  • WMU is 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 games when playing at home against Central Michigan.
  • WMU is 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games played in week 11.

Best Bet: Ohio -7 (BetRivers)

Ohio is 6-3 on the year but are coming off a 30-16 loss at home to Miami Ohio. Kurtis Rourke threw for over 300 yards and a touchdown but was sacked 3 times. The run game was nearly non-existent for the Bobcats as they finished with just 50 yards.

On 3rd down, these Bobcats went just 3 of 14 for the game. The defense had serious issues stopping the run as Rashad Amos took 21 carries for 163 yards and scored a touchdown. As a team, Miami OH ran for over 185 yards in the game and ran the Bobcats off the field.

The Bulls began their season 0-4 but have since gone 3-2 with their latest game being a 31-13 loss at Toledo. The Rockets were able to overcome 4 turnovers and going just 30% on 3rd down.

The Bulls were near identical to the Rockets in all statistics but the red zone efficiency or lack there of was the issue for Buffalo. They have struggled all year scoring and have been even worse keeping opponents out of the endzone. They rank 192nd, allowing almost 30ppg.

Ohio should be able to take care of the Bulls here on the road with relative ease. The Bobcats are holding opponents to just under 16ppg which ranks them 12th in the country. With the inability of the Bulls to convert inside the redzone, we expect the Bobcats to play from ahead for the entirety of the game.

Key Trends:

  • Ohio is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games on the road.
  • Ohio is 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games against an opponent in the Mid-American conference.
  • Buffalo is 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games at home.
  • Buffalo is 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games played in November.
