College Football Free Pick: Take the Golden Flashes. According to latest college football trends, the Chippewas are 1-4 against the spread versus a team with a losing record and 3-14 ATS in their last 17 games overall. Central Michigan is also 0-7 ATS in its last seven road games and 0-6 ATS in its last six games as a road underdog. The Chips have been brutal on the road this year. Last week in Akron CMU ran out to a two-touchdown lead before squandering it in the second half. The Chips held on to beat the Zips by one point, but that’s only because Akron head coach Rob Ianello foolishly went for two points following a touchdown earlier in the game when he did need to. CMU has been a bad second-half team this year so if Kent State can keep it close in the first half, look for the Flashes to win outright.
