The lone game on Wednesday night in week 11 for college football is a MAC matchup that features Miami (Ohio) Redhawks vs. Temple Owls.
The college football point-spread in this game opened with the Temple Owls as 11.5 point favorites. That line was pushed up by the early betting money coming in on the Owls. With 60% of the early money backing up the Owls are as high as 13 point favorites in some offshore sportsbook locations.
Miami is off a dominating win against Akron. The defense took down the Zips and controlled the game from the start and only allowed 200 yards of offense. Quarterback Zac Dysert was nearly flawless as he skewered the Zips putting up two touchdowns. The Redhawks will need him to be perfect again when they face considerably tougher defense.
Temple’s defense looked less than intimidating against Ohio in their last outing. The Owls could not keep it together and lost what could be a very crucial game. The Owls did look good on offense, as Chris Coyer and Bernard Pierce piled up yards rushing the ball. Now the Owls will need to rebound after a loss, if they hope to stay on the path for a title.
The college football sports betting trends favor the road team in this contest. The underdog is 4-0 against the spread (ATS) in the last four meetings, which is an indication that these games have a history of playing close games. The Redhawks are 5-1 ATS in their last six games following a win and 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall.
The Owls are 1-4 ATS in their last five games in November and will have trouble covering double digits in this game. Ohio showed the Redhawks how to beat Temple and this game will come down to the wire and taking the points is the way to go.
