Black Friday Odds: Eastern Michigan Eagles vs. Northern Illinois Huskies

Eastern Michigan Eagles vs. Northern Illinois Huskies picksThe Eastern Michigan Eagles face Northern Illinois Huskies on Friday at Huskie Stadium in a betting game televised at ESPN U.

Northern Illinois’ attack is hitting on all cylinders, averaging 50 points and 622 yards per game in their last three contests, and this 11:00 AM EST start time should find them scoring early and often against an Eagles squad that they lit up for 71 points last season in Ypsilanti.

Yes, Eastern Michigan needs this seventh win to become bowl eligible as two of their victories have come against FCS schools but the Huskies will reign as MAC West champs with a win today – and that gives them the opportunity to make amends for last season’s conference championship upset loss to Miami Ohio.

Recent series history says this won’t be much of a game as the Huskies have outscored the Eagles 158-9 in the last three meetings, but we should point out there is a slight chink in the armor as the visiting EMU’s are 6-0 ATS in ‘Last Road Games’ since 2005.

Nonetheless, fi rst-year HC Dave Doeren is steamrolling his Huskies towards their fi rst MAC title since rejoining the conference in 1997 and we refuse to step in front of that.

As you’ll soon see, the other 11:00 AM ET game (S. Florida vs. Louisville) piques our interest as well, so we’ll set the clock a little earlier than usual on this post-holiday Friday.

There’s really only one way to look and that’s to lay the lumber as the Huskies don’t let this one slip away.

Currently the Huskies listed as 19½-point favorites versus the Eagles in the Sportsbooks at Vegas, and the game's total is sitting at 63.
