4* Early Annihilator on Kent State -1.5
Army isn't very good. It's one dimensional on offense, and it's one of the worst defensive teams in the country.

Kent State has won 3 in a row, and 2 of those wins came on the road. So it's very capable of winning at Army, where the Black Knights haven't been very competitive this season.

Army leads the nation in rushing, but it won't be able to run at will on a Kent State defense that has held its opponents to an average of 125.2 yards on the ground.

Army's defense has given up an average of 231.2 rushing yards per game, and it will have trouble slowing down a Kent State rushing attack that averages over 200 yards a contest.

The Golden Flashes will really be able to utilize their speed on the Michie Stadium fieldturf. In fact, they are 8-0 ATS in their last 8 games on fieldturf. The Black Knights are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games versus a team with a winning record. The Black Knights are also 2-8 ATS in their last 10 versus the MAC and 1-9 ATS in their last 10 home games versus a team with a winning road record.

Lastly, plays on road favorites off 3 consecutive wins against conference rivals, a top-level team (>=80%) playing a team with a losing record, are 28-7 ATS the last 5 seasons. Lay the small number.
