Not a very good matchup as 3-7 Buffalo travels to 1-10 Miami Ohio for a weeknight MAC contest. Since the game is on National TV, we have to bet it, right? Well, no, but we’ll go ahead and try to disect a winner. As we mentioned last week, Buffalo is nowhere near the team they were last year when the won the MAC Conference Championship. After a nice road win at UTEP to start off the season, the Bulls lost 4 straight before winning two in a row against Gardner-Webb and Akron. Now they’re on a 3-game skid. Quarterback Zach Maynard is throwing too many interceptions (13). He does have 17 touchdowns though. Redhawks QB Zac Dysert has been even worse. He has 15 interceptions to his 11 TD’s. Miami has been more competitive since October as they’ve covered the spread in 5 of their last 7 games. I’ll pick them to win this game at home.

Pick: Miami Ohio +3 (-125)
