Akron vs Buffalo Prediction & Pick
There's no denying that Akron has been one of the worst teams in the MAC this season. The Zips rank last in the conference in rushing yards per game (93.0), last in rushing yards allowed per game (174.7) and last in points allowed per game (34.5). It's been a weekly struggle on both sides of the football.
This is the perfect spot for Buffalo to build momentum in its rushing attack. The Bulls logged over 4.0 yards per carry last weekend and saw Myers put together one of his best outing of the year. Buffalo is also 5-1 straight up in its last six games against Akron, so give me the Bulls to win big on Friday night.
Final Score Prediction: Akron: 17 | Buffalo: 35

Akron vs Buffalo Best Bet
Not only is Buffalo 5-1 straight up in its last six games against Akron, but it is also 5-1 against the spread (ATS) during that same span. The Bulls are also 5-0 ATS in their last five home games against the Zips. Akron does not have the firepower on offense to give its conference foe a run for its money.
Keep in mind neither of these teams will qualify to play in a bowl game this season, but it's the Bulls that still have reason to be motivated. This will the final home game for some of the seniors on Buffalo and they're going to want to put on one final show. Don't expect them to show any mercy in this one.
