I like giving the edge to the home team after two clubs played yesterday, and the Miami-Ohio RedHawks are due for a breakout performance after back-to-back losses. Ausstin play hasn't played great up to this point and is sure to struggle on the road. Give me the RedHawks and the reasonable line here.
