Win Division (+1050), Win Conference (+3300)
SSA Model Pick: None
Before Terry Bowden took over at Akron the Zips struggled. They have turned into a competitive team in the MAC. While the Zips somehow found their way to the MAC title game last season they are not an elite team in this conference.
Win Total Analysis
4.5 wins (+105/-125)
SSA Model Pick: Over (High Confidence)
There will be a lot of new faces on offense and the defense has a new coordinator this year. While the Zips are unlikely to reach 7 regular season wins this season, going over 4.5 should be doable. You’ll have to sweat this one out as a tough non-conference slate will leave the Zips at 1-3 to start the season, but they’ll find 4 wins in their final 8 games.
