The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times, and those who have followed it have seen huge returns. Over the past four-plus years, the proprietary computer model has generated a stunning profit of over $4,000 for $100 players on its top-rated college football picks against the spread. The model enters Week 11 of the 2019 season on a strong run, going 105-69 on all its top-rated college football picks. Anybody who has been following it is way up. 

Now, the model has dialed in on Ohio vs. Miami (Ohio). We can tell you it’s leaning over, and it’s also generated a very strong against the spread pick that cashes in over 60 percent of simulations. That one is only available at SportsLine. 

The model knows the Bobcats are 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games after allowing more than 200 yards rushing in their previous game. They also have had plenty of success under coach Frank Solich, going 110-79 during his tenure, which is the second-most wins in school history behind Don Peden, who won 121 from 1924 to 1946. With one more win, he will pass Herb Deromedi of Central Michigan (1978-93) for most wins by a MAC coach.

Senior quarterback Nathan Rourke has been a dual threat for Ohio and leads the team in passing and rushing. He has completed 122-of-206 passes for 1,743 yards and 10 touchdowns, while carrying 97 times for 536 yards and eight TDs.

But just because the Bobcats are 8-2 at home since the start of last season does not guarantee they will cover the Ohio vs. Miami (Ohio) spread on Wednesday.

That’s because Miami has seen a resurgence in its program under sixth-year coach Chuck Martin. Despite going 26-43 overall, including 4-26 in Martin’s first 30 MAC games, Miami is 19-7 in its last 26. The RedHawks are looking to post their first winning season since going 10-4 in 2010. 

Freshman running back Tyre Shelton and junior back Jaylon Bester have played important roles in recent weeks as the RedHawks have posted back-to-back wins against Northern Illinois and Kent State. Shelton, who leads the team in rushing, ran over the Golden Flashes, carrying 14 times for 148 yards. Bester was equally as effective, rushing 32 times for 99 yards and three scores over the past two games, including a two-TD effort against Northern Illinois.
