The Kent State Golden Flashes have been one of the better home teams in the country these last few years, but they’re sloppy defensively, and it makes them hard to trust with big chalk. The Eastern Michigan Eagles don’t do anything great, but they’ve still managed to win 6 games overall and have also won 4 straight games on the road. There’s also a history of close games between these teams. Give me the free touchdown.
