MACtion Betting Preview: Best MAC Bets For This Week

There won’t be true MACtion this weekend as the teams from the league are set to compete in non-conference action. Most of the MAC teams are big underdogs this weekend, but this is also a conference that is known for pulling off some upsets.

There are the four best MAC bets in Week 1 of the college football season. 

Cincinnati Bearcats -22.5 vs. Miami (OH) Redhawks/ OVER 51 Points

The Miami Redhawks have the unenviable task of traveling to Cincinnati to take on the mighty Bearcats. Cincinnati is a team that has a chance to be the best college football team from Ohio, but the Ohio State Buckeyes will have something to say about it.

The Bearcats are only 22.5-point favorites in this game, which seems to be giving Miami (OH) too much credit. Miami does have some talent this season, but trying to slow down Cincinnati is not going to be an easy task. 

Don’t expect this game to be close for long, as Cincinnati will be trying to make a statement in the season opener. Desmond Ridder is one of the best players in the country, and he is going to lead the Bearcats to some big offensive totals.

Take the Bearcats -22.5 and also bet the OVER in this matchup against the Miami (OH) Redhawks.

Ohio Bobcats +1.5 vs. Syracuse Orange

If you are looking to bet on an underdog team from the MAC this weekend, look no further than the Ohio Bobcats. Ohio is a team that should be in the mix to win the league this season, and they have a chance to score a massive win in the season opener. 

Ohio will be on the road against Syracuse, but this challenge will not be as challenging as it looks on paper. The Orange struggled a season ago, and they aren’t expected to be much better in 2021. 

The Bobcats can score points in a hurry, and they will be a nightmare for the Syracuse defense. Teams from the MAC will struggle to pick up wins this weekend, but this is one game that should be won by Ohio.

Texas A&M Aggies -28.5 vs. Kent State Golden Flashes

Kent State should be a team that finishes in the middle of the pack in the MAC this season, but they have enough talent to surprise some teams. The Golden Flashes should be in a bowl to end the season, but they have a very tough matchup in Week 1.

Texas A&M is a massive 28.5-point favorite over Kent State in the season opener, and it’s hard to see the Golden Flashes keeping this one close. The Aggies should be one of the best college football teams in the country this season, and they are going to make a statement in this one.

With apologies to Kent State, taking the Aggies -28.5 is the way to go in this matchup.
