UAB might be 1-0 but they were not very impressive. It is actually kind of surprising they are a road favourite in this spot.
Akron got beat pretty soundly in their opener. They are at home but a similar result likes like the most likely outcome.
UAB was great last season but this year they are expected to take a step back. Mostly due to few starters returning.
The star of the team is Spencer Brown, who rushed for more than 1200 yards last season. Every opponent knows it though so it is goingto be tougher this season.
QB Tyler Johnson was not sharp in the opener. He needs to be better as the competition improves which is will from week to week.
It says a lot about the program that they are such heavy favorites on the road in this spot. They should add another win here.
Akron just got thumped by Illinois. It was MAC vs. Big Ten but the result was worse than expected. They are at home hoping for more.
It was just one game against a better opponent but clearly the Zips need to be better on defense after giving up 42 points to Illinois. That was the strength of the team last season.
Quarterback Kato Nelson has experience and so do the receivers so look for more pop from the offense in this one. They only scored 18ppg a year ago though.
Akron has to be better in their home opener. I actually kind of like the number and that it will take a couple of scores to beat them.

The Zips are ranked 126 on offense, averaging 192 yards per game, and they’re averaging 64 yards rushing and 128 yards passing so far this season.
This is the first home game of the season for Akron and I think they will put forward a good effort.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Akron +9
Two scores seems a little generous for the Blazers after what we saw a week ago. They are not as good as last season.
Akron will get their offense going enough to make this one a fight til the end.
