Bowling Green Falcons Key Stats
The Bowling Green Falcons have averaged 22.6 points per game, the sixth-best mark in the MAC. They are also sixth in passing completion and passing yards per game. However, the quarterback trio of Connor Bazelak, Camden Orth, and Hayden Timosciek have thrown for five touchdowns against nine interceptions. Former Indiana starter Connor Bazelak has gotten most of the work this season, including playing the entirety of last week’s game against Georgia Tech. The Falcons average 4.1 yards per rush attempt. Additionally, they have averaged a conference-high 2.4 turnovers committed per game.
Defensively, Bowling Green allows 29 points per game. The secondary has struggled, with opposing QBs throwing for nearly three touchdowns per game on a 65% completion percentage. The front seven also surrenders 4.2 yards per rush attempt. However, they are just one of two teams in the MAC to average at least two turnovers forced per contest.
Miami (OH) RedHawks Key Stats
The Miami (OH) RedHawks trail just the Toledo Rockets for most points scored per game (32.0) in the MAC. Quarterback Brett Gabbert, the brother of former first-round pick Blaine Gabbert, has thrown for 1,062 yards and ten scores against three picks in his team’s first five games. The RedHawks are also in the top third of the conference in most offensive team rushing statistics. They run for 172 yards per game on 5.2 yards per attempt. Miami is one of four teams in the MAC to average one or fewer turnovers committed per game.
The RedHawks let up 22.6 points per game, the third-lowest average in the MAC. However, opposing passers complete a healthy 63% of their passes. Ohio does keep backfields to 3.8 yards per rush attempt. They have also struggled to force turnovers.
I like the Miami RedHawks to cover the spread in this conference tilt. Miami is fantastic on offense, especially in the passing game. Meanwhile, Bowling Green has gotten torched by quality quarterbacks. BGSU will also look to run the ball, which is the strength of the RedHawk’s defense. So, let’s roll with Miami to cover against Bowling Green on Saturday.
