Today: Partly cloudy with a slight chance of thunderstorms. High 68F. Winds WSW at 10 to 20 mph. Chance of rain 30%.

Tonight: Windy with partly cloudy skies. Low 32F. Winds WNW at 20 to 30 mph.

O/U started out at 60 down to 56.5....pounding the over.

With wind at 20-30 mph I would think putting the ball up would be a dicey proposition. Any one familiar with the field location and wind direction in relation to the field, information would help. Any way due to wind I,m playing the under.

I have the O/U capped at 58, but with the wind I must agree that should affect the passing game. Although Miami O averages 44.75 ppg @ home, and Marshal's O is scoring almost 29 ppg on the road

There is a high wind advisory out now with winds possibly approaching 40-60 MPH so I wouldn't touch the over in this game unless I KNEW the exact conditions.

Passing with wind that high is just not a good idea 5 yd passes go 30 yds while if you are against the wind you have to throw the hell out of it to get 10 yds. Kicking game is also affected. And if it is a cross wind things can really get interesting. I would rather take the over in rain, sleet, snow than high winds. It's a night for the ground game.

Yager stadium holds about 30,000. Was there last year for the miami o and ohio u game 38-20 (yes i was drunk) The west part of the stadium is pretty tall I'm hoping for a wind block, but I can see these 2 powerful offenses putting up points. I especially like the line dropping so quick from 60 down to 56.5. I'm going with the over. Also leaning a little on Marshall, I think 13 is alot. Of course that's what I said about bowling green. The wave drowned me. Good luck tonite

I still see 20-30 mph winds I wish these weather creeps would make up their minds. There was about 7 games last weekend where they said rain was exspected and never did. IS THERE ANYONE FROM OXFORD OHIO THAT CAN HELP US WITH THE FORECAST

Remember the Green bay - Chicago bear monday night football game about 4 years ago when it was pooring down rain and the wind was blowing it sideways. they scored 55 points that night. We seen ever possible condition and a shit load of points scored. I'm just trying to convince myself the overs a good play. I think so. enough said, Martini time, good luck boys

...but remember the Green Bay vs. Philly game from this past Monday nite...cold, rainy, and windy...I tried to convince myself that the over was the play and I am glad I did not. The teams could not pass the ball and the ground game and yards after dump-offs was the difference. I will ride the under 57 in tonites game for 4 units!

Don't know how reliable these goofballs are but this is from the weather channel: Low:
32°F

Partly Cloudy / Wind

Wind:
From the West Northwest at 24 mph

Precip: 10 %

Max. Humidity: 70 %

I know what you mean, but brett farve is not like the past when he kicked ass, you have 2 great offensive teams tonite with an average wind. Be my luck I'll bet this game over and the flags will be blowing stiff straight.
