Kent State vs Northern Illinois 12/4/21 Betting Prediction
Kent State is 7-5 and the team has won 6 of their last 8 games this season. The Golden Flashes really turned things around mainly due to their amazing attack on the ground. They are averaging 247.3 rushing yards per game with the offense scoring in bunches – 33.4 points per game. The passing game is also decent being led by QB Dustin Crum who has a QBR of 78. The defense, however, is awful, allowing 34.6 points per game.
Northern Illinois is 8-4 but they are enduring a bad spell of games these recent weeks. The Huskies are 2-2 in their last 4 games and the games they lost were all lost due to their defense. They allowed 94 total points against Western Michigan and Kent State. Northern Illinois is another team that relies a lot on the rushing attack, averaging 231.7 rushing yards per game. The offense scores 30.8 points per game while the defense allows 33.5 points per game.
Kent State already beat Northern Illinois about a month ago and they will head into this game with confidence. The Golden Flashes are definitely on the high as their recent form is much better than Northern Illinois’. Anything but a Kent State win will be a surprise here.
