The Central Connecticut State Blue Devils and the Eastern Michigan Eagles will match up in college football action on Saturday.
Central Connecticut is 3-0 this year so far, posting wins over Fordham 26-23, Merrimack 40-37 and Valparaiso 42-13 in their opening three matchups.
In the win over the Crusaders, Blue Devils QB Aaron Winchester posted 147 yards with one TD, and Tyshaun James caught four balls for 75 yards and a TD. Keonte Lucas did most of the work on the ground with 190 yards and two touchdowns.
Over on the Eastern Michigan side, they came out with a win over Coastal Carolina 30-23 in Week 1 but fell to Kentucky in the next game 38-17. The Eagles took out Illinois 34-31 in a thriller this past weekend.
In the victory Week 3, EMU quarterback Mike Glass posted 316 yards with three touchdowns. Leading in receiving yardage there was Arthur Jackson with 80 yards and two touchdowns off three catches.
The under is 4-0 in the Eagles’ last four home games versus a team with a winning road record and 5-1 in their last six games after allowing more than 450 total yards in their previous game. The under is also 5-1 in Eastern Michigan’s last six home games.
CCSU benefitted from a huge rushing performance in the Week 3 game and put the game away in the third quarter. Aside from that they’ve had some close calls this season and some inconsistent play.
As for EMU, they’ve had some issues here and there as well but the Illinois win should be a big lift. I’m going with the Eagles here.
