Kent State vs. Northern Illinois
College Football Prediction: NIU -23.5 points (October 7th 2017)

I’m recommending a play on Northern Illinois on Saturday afternoon.  We’ve backed the Huskies twice this season already, cashing with NIU when they knocked off Nebraska, and covering again last week when they hung the number against undefeated San Diego State. The Huskies could have beaten the Aztecs outright, losing the game thanks to an 83-yard pick-6 when they had a chance to go up 21-14, and a 96-yard kickoff return for a TD to start the game.  The Huskies gained 23 first downs to 10 for SDSU and out-gained the Aztecs 429-263! This week, NIU bounces back against Kent State.

The Flashes are horrible on both sides of the football, including offense where they have no semblance of a passing game and a mediocre ground game. NIU is a beast on the defensive side of the football and should slam the door on their MAC opponent.  Kent State ranks 102nd against the pass, 117th defending the run, 119th in total yards allowed per game, and 111th in scoring defense. They have failed to cover six of their last seven games, while NIU will be aiming for their 7th straight cover. The Huskies are 7-1-1 ATS in the last nine meetings.  We’re backing Northern Illinois minus the points on Saturday. Thanks & GL!  Scott Spreitzer.
