Latest Odds : MTU -2.5 Total 45
UAB has dropped 2 games straight and that is going to be a problem for the Blazers coming into the championship game here. The other issue the Blazers will have is the fact the Blazers just dropped a game to Middle Tennessee. What else can be an issue is the fact the Blue Raiders are going to have the upper hand as the defense of the Blue Raiders held the Blazers to only 3 points.
The Blue Raiders on the year have 4 losses on the year, but after completely dominating the Blazers it does look to tip the hand in favor of the Blue Raiders in this game here. Look for the Blue Raiders to do much of the same they did in the first game against UAB as it definitely proved useful.
The Blazers offense in the last game only managed to get 3.8 yards per pass, which is downright horrible on the day and equaled out to 90 yards. The Blazers were able to rush for 0 yards per carry and when you look at the stats it is easy to see why when the Blazers had -1 rushing yards in the game.
The Blue Raiders on the day were able to throw the ball for 261 yards in the game or 9 yards per pass. The Blue Raiders rushing offense was able to get 133 yards on the game or 3.8 yards per carry.

Free Betting Pick: Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders -2.5
The Blue Raiders were able to stuff the Blazers offense in the last game and they should be able to continue to do this in this game as well. Look for the Blazers to struggle in the game here and that comes from the defense that is able to really lock down the Blazers and keep them as a one dimensional team, but the Blue Raiders offense is able to perform like they did the week before. Final Score Prediction, Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders win and cover ATS 27-23.
