Cen­tral Michi­gan over KENT ST by 21

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

Hav­ing scored less than 20 points in all FBS games this sea­son, the im­po­tent Kent State Golden Flashes haven’t done much post-game smok­ing. In fact, putting the Golden Flashes’ of­fense in the Red Zone – where they rank dead last in the na­tion – would be like re­cast­ing Kevin Spacey in a re­make of ‘Amer­i­can Beauty’. And though lay­ing sig­nif­i­cant dou­ble-dig­its on the road with a Cen­tral Michi­gan team that has al­ready punched a bowl ticket and has lit­tle chance of win­ning the di­vi­sion isn’t our cup of tea, we can only look the Chips’ way tonight as the Flashes are 3-38 SU and 11-27 ATS in games in which they fail to score 24 points un­der soon-to-be-de­parted head coach Paul Haynes. CMU’s 4-1 SUATS record in LRG’s (Last Road Games) as well as a ster­ling 14-5 SU and 15-4 ATS mark away from Game Six out the last six years, in­clud­ing 2-0 SUATS this sea­son, pro­vides ad­di­tional sup­port. Thus, we say lay it and play it as we’re not about to step in front of Cen­tral’s cur­rent 3-0 SUATS streak with a Kent club that has shown no Flashes of of­fense un­der Haynes for the fifth straight year.
