Talk about a stay away game if there was one. Yeesh. This game is the definition of bowling shoe ugly. With that said, I don’t have faith in either one of these teams against the number, as Ohio hasn’t been able to cover a number this season and they only beat Akron by 14 when other teams like Western Michigan are winning by 40+ against the Zips. On the other hand, the Falcons have been a doormat in three games this season and I just don’t trust this team as far as I can throw them. Instead, I’m taking the under as I can see both teams doing enough (or not enough for that matter) to keep this one well below the total. Give me the under.
