Market Moves for Ohio-Miami Ohio

By Steve Petrella

Behind the majority of bets, Ohio has moved to -4.5 after opening -3. As of Wednesday morning, 82% of bets and 70% of dollars were on the Bobcats (see live data here).

Every year, we see teams get massive public support during midweek MAC games because of what happened the week prior. Ohio stomped Western Michigan 59-14, while Miami-Ohio lost to Buffalo in a shootout and didn’t cover — both in standalone games that bettors saw.

Matchup Breakdown for Ohio-Miami Ohio

By Stuckey

Miami Ohio’s offense comes in on a roll, having scored 30-plus points in six straight games. It should have success moving the ball through the air against an Ohio defense that struggles immensely to defend the pass.

Per S&P+, the Bobcats rank 114th in the nation in passing defense and allow 8.3 yards per attempt (108th in the country).
