Kent State vs. Miami (OH)
Saturday, October 26, 2019 at 2:31 PM (Dix Stadium)
KSU -2.5 O/U 55.5
The Redhawks have improved off of what they have done in the past and pulled their record to a 3-4 mark overall and 2-1 in the conference. However, the last game out for the Redhawks proved that the team is able to overcome a lot of the issues that the team has had in the past as they held onto the lead to beat Northern Illinois 27-24.
Brett Gabbert is the quarterback the Redhawks have relied on this year. Gabbert has thrown the ball for 1182 yards and 4 touchdowns, but has found the wrong jersey 5 time. Jaylon Bester is the leading rusher for Miami with 54 carries for 200 yards and 4 touchdown this year. Defensively the Redhawks have allowed 35.4 points a game.
Kent State is heading into the game here with a 3-4 record, but like the Redhawks have improved in their conference record to the 2-1 mark. The last game the Golden Flashes played in saw them come up short against the Bobcats who put in a good 45 points and the Golden Flashes could only counter with 38 points of their own.
The defensive outing for the Golden Flashes in the last game was disappointing as the defense usually gives up 32 points. Dustin Crum is the leading quarterback for the Golden Flashes on the year as he has thrown for 1136 yards and 10 touchdowns, but has not been picked off this year. Jo-El Shaw is the Golden Flashes leading rusher with 69 carries for 331 yards and 2 touchdowns.
Kent State is a team that has been able to play decent at various points this year, but also have a decent passing attack led by Crum. With Crum guiding the Golden Flashes the chance of the Golden Flashes picking up the home win increases dramatically as Gabbert is unable to find the right colored uniform all the time and is unable to lead the Redhawks back in the game. Final Score Prediction, Kent State Golden Flashes win and cover ATS 35-31.
