4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Northern Illinois -23.5
Kent State will need to turn down on the turnovers in this matchup if they want to stand a chance. Bollas needs to be more productive this week and lead the team to touchdowns.
If Daniel Santacaterina hadn’t thrown three interceptions last week, maybe we would be talking about how the Huskies are ranked in the top 25. Expect the Huskies to cover the spread and destroy Kent State in this one.
