The Central Michigan Chippewas and Buffalo Bulls clash Wednesday in week 11 MAC college football action at Kelly/Shorts Stadium. The Buffalo Bulls look for a win after winning 5 of their last 6 games. The Central Michigan Chippewas look to rebound from a 3-6 record.

The Buffalo Bulls have split their last 6 road games. Cole Snyder is completing 58.9 percent of his passes for 2,145 yards, 14 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. Justin Marshall and Quian Williams have combined for 1,082 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns, while Jamari Gassett has 27 receptions. The Buffalo Bulls ground game is averaging 141.7 yards per contest, and Mike Washington leads the way with 506 yards and 6 touchdowns. Defensively, Buffalo is allowing 27 points and 401.4 yards per game. Shaun Dolac leads the Buffalo Bulls with 96 tackles, Daymond Williams has 3.5 sacks and Marcus Fuqua has 5 interceptions.

The Central Michigan Chippewas have lost 3 of their last 4 home games. Daniel Richardson is completing 56.6 percent of his passes for 1,893 yards, 15 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. Carlos Carriere and Joel Wilson have combined for 923 receiving yards and 8 touchdowns, while Jalen McGaughy has 16 receptions. The Central Michigan Chippewas ground game is averaging 143.1 yards per contest, and Lew Nicholls III leads the way with 561 yards and 6 touchdowns. Defensively, Central Michigan is allowing 29 points and 364.3 yards per game. Kyle Moretti leads the Central Michigan Chippewas with 64 tackles, Thomas Incoom has 8.5 sacks and Trey Jones has 2 interceptions.

The Bulls are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Chippewas are 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 5-0 in Bulls last 5 Wednesday games. The under is 5-2 in Chippewas last 7 games overall. The favorite is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings.

The Buffalo Bulls in the favorite role is a bit strange to me, given their inconsistency and their struggles on the defensive side. However, the Central Michigan Chippewas are a below average team on both sides of the ball and playing at home hasn’t meant much either. Central Michigan has lost 3 of its 4 home games this season. Knowing that, I’ll lay the small number with Buffalo on the road, but I certainly don’t love it.
