Tonight, we return to our poorly-attended friends of the Midwest. Guys and gals, come out and cheer on your boys! That’s actually something I will never understand… what’s more interesting in Ypsilanti, Michigan than your local squad being on the television and scoring in bunches? Crowd size aside, we’ve got three more on the docket today and I have placed my money on two of those bad boys!
In this spot, with a total this high, I am all over the under. It’s so many points but there’s a difference now… MACtion. There are more points thank you can shake a stick at stacking up in this first couple of weeks of our beloved mid-week football adventure. Last week the OVERS went 5-1 and last night they cruised over in two of the three games and I can most definitely seeing it sweep the three-gamer tonight. I’ll start with Kent State who has only gone over in 3 of their games this season BUT they have done so in three of their last four games. MACtion. Kent State is rushing for 235 yards a game AND 359 LAST WEEK. MACtion. The Flashes also allowed 532 yards passing through the air last week and Central Michigan hosts a top 20 passing offense. MACtion. Let’s live dangerously and root for the fun in this spectacle and take the over.
Now here’s a number that is totally on the opposite side of the fun MACtion. Bowling Green is statistically bad offense, like 111th in the country bad… however, in their last four games, the OVER has flown by. Toledo had a 6-game UNDER streak broken last week against Eastern Michigan. This total is coming slowly to us throughout the week and has dropped 2.5 points at FanDuel. Toledo’ offense isn’t spectacular by any stretch, but they are top half of the country in passing yards, rushing yards, total yards and scoring so, they can score enough. Bowling Green has been much better than expected this season because of their defense, but the trend is heading toward late season, in-conference points and that’s where I am putting my money. OVER, PALS.
