College football gambling expectations are falling fast for the Bowling Green Falcons as they are one of the weaker entries on the NCAA football wagering board.
The Bowling Green Falcons will host the Miami-OH Redhawks on Wednesday Night in ESPN2 action from the Mid American Conference. Kickoff is set for 8:05 PM Eastern and Sports-Gambling opened with Miami-Oh as a 3.5 point favorite.
The Miami-OH Redhawks have a record of 5-4 both straight up and with the college football odds as 7 of their 9 games have gone under the total. Miami has a 4-1 straight up record in the MAC and is in 2nd place in the East Division behind 5-1 Temple and Ohio.
The Redhawks are coming off a 21-9 win and payout at Buffalo as they went under the total for the 4th consecutive game. After a horrible 1-11 season last year in his head coaching debut, Mike Haywood has the Redhawks in stride and pointed towards a potential bowl berth, if not a shot at the MAC title game itself.
It won’t be easy for Miami, however, as they rank 104th for points scored and 70th for points allowed. Quarterback Zac Dysert has been wild with 2185 yards passing but a 12/12 touchdown/interception ratio.
The Bowling Green Falcons have a record of 2-7 straight up and 5-4 with the college football lines. Bowling Green has gone over the total in 6 out of 9 games this year. Bowling Green ranks 110th in total offense and 104th for points allowed on defense.
The Falcons are coming off a 17-14 win at Central Michigan which snapped a 5 game losing streak. Quarterback Matt Schilz has been erratic with a 5/9 TD/INT ratio but Willie Geter has shown progress with 566 yards rushing.
Miami is 2-8 against the spread when coming off a straight up win while Bowling Green has paid out in just 7 of their last 26 home games. Bowling Green has gone over the total in 4 of their last 5 games versus a team with a winning record.
The road team has paid out in 5 of the last 6 meetings in this college football gambling series with Miami covering their last 5 consecutive visits to Bowling Green.
