The Ohio Bobcats and Central Michigan Chippewas get their shortened seasons underway on Wednesday in what oddsmakers are expecting to be a close game. CMU would seem to have value at -1, as the MAC West champ in ’19.
Don’t count out Ohio though as this is a Bobcats team that ranked 2nd in the conference in points/game a season ago but was also 3rd defensively in points allowed.
Both Ohio (34.7) and Central Michigan (30.9) averaged over 30 points per game last season, but each also turn to new QBs in 2020. Oddsmakers are still expecting some points with a betting total of 57.5, the 2nd highest of the night.
Ohio has a famous name at QB as former UNLV signal caller Armani Rogers takes over for the Bobcats. The 6’5″, 225 pounder accounted for 2200 all-purpose yards in 2017, but his production has dropped every year since.
Some help for Rogers comes in the talent he has around him. Ohio has two RBs that both averaged 6+ ypc last year, and all of the major skill players return led by Jr. wide receiver Isiah Cox who had 39 catches a year ago.
The Ohio defense returns 8 of the top 11 tacklers from a pretty good 2019 unit. The Bobcats were 4th in rush yards allowed / game a year ago and ranked 5th in the MAC in pass yards surrendered per contest.
Central Michigan Chippewas
Central Michigan will also be replacing their QB from a year ago, as Quinten Dormady (2312, 14/9) graduated. The Chippewas may have the advantage of replacing him with Sr. David Moore however.
Moore did see time in the CMU system a year ago, starting four games and having a 330-yard performance against Western Michigan. Moore didn’t lose his job, but was suspended for testing positive for a banned substance.
CMU brings some major returning talent at skill position into this season. That includes 1000+ yard rusher Kobe Lewis as well as 82-catch receiver Kalil Pimpleton. Combined with a hungry and humbled Moore that’s a good combo.
Of course the Central Michigan defense will need to hold up their end of the bargain. The Chippewas had the 2nd best rush defense in the MAC a year ago, but allowed the 9th most yards through the air.
