Each week, we will each give out our favorite moneyline underdog on the college football card. Week 8 is no different. You can play them straight, throw them in a longshot parlay or just read for additional insight.
We picked up profit for the second straight week last Saturday, but again came up one point short of hitting all three with Memphis’ 31-30 loss to UCF. Let’s keep it rolling this Saturday.
If you feel like really rolling the dice, a moneyline parlay of all three pays 70-1.
YTD: 8-13 +4.80 units
Stuckey: Miami Ohio +260

Miami Ohio owes me for a couple no-shows early in the season.
But in all seriousness, quarterback Gus Ragland & Co. have gotten going on offense lately after a really slow start to the season. The RedHawks have scored at least 30 points in four consecutive games — something the program hasn’t done since some guy named Ben Roethlisberger was under center in 2003. They should continue that trend against a subpar Black Knights defense.
The veteran RedHawks defense also does a solid job against the run, which is a necessity against Army. Throw in a big edge on special teams and I think Miami Ohio has a real shot at getting a W at West Point this weekend in a game in which I’d only make Army a field-goal favorite.
I know Army has won nine straight at home and Miami played an up-tempo spread offense last week, but I can’t pass up this inflated number. Value town.
