One of the model's Championship Week college football predictions is that Miami (Ohio) stays within the spread as a 6.5-point underdog against Central Michigan in the 2019 MAC Championship Game.
The RedHawks opened the season at 2-4 thanks in large part to a brutal schedule that included games against Iowa, Cincinnati and Ohio State. After splitting their first two MAC games, they caught fire late in the season on their way to five wins in their last six games, including pivotal victories over MAC East challengers Kent State and Ohio.
The RedHawks also went 4-2 against the spread in their final six games and have covered in 13 of their last 17 MAC games overall. Central Michigan was one of the best teams against the spread in the nation at 9-2, but SportsLine's model says the line is too large in this one. The RedHawks get 200 yards of passing from quarterback Brett Gabbert as they cover in 60 percent of simulations, while the under (55) also has plenty of value because that hits well over 60 percent of the time.
The model also has made the call against the spread, on the over-under, and on the money line for every other game on the Championship Week college football schedule, including the 2019 SEC Championship Game featuring LSU vs. Georgia as well as the Ohio State vs. Wisconsin matchup in the 2019 Big Ten Championship Game. It knows the line in one game is way off, saying one side of the spread hits in almost 60 percent of simulations. Get every pick for every game here.
