Miami Ohio Betting Stats & 2019 Season Profile

  • Season Record: 7-5
  • Against-the-Spread Record: 6-6
  • Conference: MAC
  • Offense Yards Per Play Rank: 113
  • Defense Yards Per Play Rank: 35
  • S&P+ Special Teams Rank: 50

Analysis: Miami Ohio is by far the biggest surprise from the MAC this year. While they piled up enough wins to win the MAC championship, the Redhawks aren’t a team that I’m viewing as vastly improved in 2019. Miami ranks 110th in yards per play on offense, 112th in passing success rate, 125th in rushing success rate, and 110th in overall efficiency. They don’t have a strength on offense which isn’t a surprise given their freshman quarterback and poor offensive line. The defense is pretty good, but it’s not anything to write home about. Look to fade Miami if they face a team that has success running the ball. –Kyle Miller

ULL Betting Stats & 2019 Season Profile

  • Season Record: 10-2
  • Against-the-Spread Record: 9-3
  • Conference: Sun Belt
  • Offense Yards Per Play Rank: 6
  • Defense Yards Per Play Rank: 52
  • S&P+ Special Teams Rank: 31

Analysis: Had it not been for one-loss App State stealing the Sun Belt spotlight, the talk of the conference this season would’ve surrounded the Ragin’ Cajuns. Louisiana-Lafayette finished a win shy of App State’s 11, but still obviously hit the double-digit mark and dropped only one conference game. The Cajuns’ offensive was one of the best in the country during the regular season, ranking sixth in yards per play and 16th in offensive SP+. The other side of the ball wasn’t too shabby either, ranking 52nd and 66th, respectively — which really isn’t bad for a Sun Belt school. Louisiana led the conference in points allowed per game (17.8) and only App State allowed fewer yards per play. Behind center, quarterback Levi Lewis’ standard stats weren’t exactly jumping off the page, but he did a terrific job controlling the ball and led the conference with a ridiculous 20-to-3 touchdown to interception ratio. –Danny Donahue
