LINE: Eastern Michigan -1, o/u: 47.5
ATS PICK: Army
It’s fair to be worried.
Army had Miami University at home last week, and it had to scratch and claw to pull out a 31-30 win. Now it has to go on the road to face an Eastern Michigan team that beat a Toledo team that just rolled Western Michigan, and is coming off a blowout over Ball State.
But the Eagle run defense just isn’t that good.
EMU has allowed 225 rushing yards or more in three of the last four games, and it’s given up nine touchdowns in those four. Before the wins over the last two weeks, it had lost its previous four games.
Yeah, that MU game was tight last week, but Army has been amazing lately with 300 rushing yards or more in five of the last six games, and blew out a strong Buffalo team on the road in the other.
All you’re asking is for Army to win. It might have only beaten EMU 28-27 last year, but this time around, trust the option machine.
