Kent State vs. Akron Prediction
I’m predicting Akron will win and cover the spread at -3.5. I also believe the game will go Under 38.5 total points.
Akron may have lost as much as Kent State this year, but the Zips have been in one-score games in two of their past four outings. I think they finally find a way to break their losing streak here.
Akron is actually in the top six in the MAC in total defense. I believe the Zips will shine on that side of the ball in this matchup en route to winning by a touchdown.
