In NCAA Football LendingTree Bowl, we will see Louisiana at Miami Ohio.
Miami OH is 8-5 this season but the team has won 6 of its last 7 games. The Redhawks have been very inconsistent but they still have a winning record. The team is scoring 24.7 points per game on offense and allowing 28.2 per game on defense. QB Brett Gabbert is not very solid with the 53.7% completion of his passes, 2163 passing yards, 11 touchdowns, and 8 interceptions. Running backs duo Jaylon Bester and Tyre Shelton is doing a great job moving the chains. Bester has 689 rushing yards while Shelton is adding 528 and 14 touchdowns combined.
UL Lafayette is 10-3 and the Ragin Cajuns had a much difficult schedule than Miami OH. They are in a tougher conference and finished 1st in Sun Belt. The team is constantly doing damage on offense, averaging nearly 39 points per game while allowing just 20. The team is ranked 7th in rushing yards per game in the whole country and 63rd in passing yards. QB Levi Lewis is completing 63% of his throws for 2804 yards, 24 touchdowns, and 4 interceptions. RB Elijah Mitchell, Raymond Calais, and Trey Ragas are all very explosive and tough to break. They have combined for over 2700 rushing yards and 32 touchdowns.
I know that the spread might look a bit high but UL Lafayette deserves it. They are averaging 200 yards more than the opposition and the defense is giving up less. I think it is only right to side with the Rajin Cajuns to cover the spread.
