Miami (OH) has the #1 defense in the MAC. Both teams have issues on offense, under ticket all day. Join expert capper as he reveals his NCAAF week 8 pick.


Miami (OH) RedHawks vs Bowling Green Falcons  

NCAAF Week 7 Records: 2-0

It does not get much more under the radar than the Miami (OH) Redhawks vs the Bowling Green Falcons. Both teams stand at 1-6 on the year. Miami (OH) is off of their first win of the year just last week vs Kent St. Bowling Green has lost five straight and is still searching for their first win at the FBS level, as their lone victory came against North Dakota of the FCS level. It’s no secret each of these two MAC schools have major flaws, although it offers value when looking at this matchup dissecting the total, especially when factoring in one of the few positive units, the Miami (OH) defense.

The Miami (OH) defense ranks #1 in the MAC giving up only 252.7 yards a game in conference play. They have a talented front seven and have held aggressive pass-happy offenses like Western Kentucky and Cincinnati to under 270 yards passing and 31 and 27 points respectfully. Bowling Green will try and push the pace offensively and actually had their best game of the season last week in the Battle of the I-75 Trophy rivalry matchup against Toledo. Although, the Falcons do not possess near the caliber of athlete that the top offenses Miami (OH) has faced in the recent past. Bowling Green freshman quarterback James Morgan will likely take a step back when facing statistically the best defense in the MAC.

The Bowling Green defense is susceptible to giving up points, but with the Redhawks starting QB Billy Bahl out for the Redhawks for the last couple weeks, it has been tough moving the football offensively. Miami (OH) is going to try and control the clock and win a defensive battle in Bowling Green on Saturday.  For you NCAAF week 8 picks I recommend a wager on the under of 50.5 (-105) which you can find at Bookmaker.
