I like Ball st. here now getting +1.5 points. Both of these teams are going to score some points in this game as the Defense in this game is going to be awful. (dont let your kids watch this one) Eastern Michigan had a really hard time stopping the passing game against Western Michigan last week and thats not a good stat for this upcoming match up. Ball State has thrown for at least 298 yards in each of their first four games before turning to the run against Northern Illinois. Given the struggles that Eastern Michigan has had against the pass, it wouldnt be a surprise to see Ball State go back to the air assault. Regardless I like the Cardinals and the momentum they have after their first win over Northern Illinois since 2008 to cover int his one.
We've got the 109th and 103rd ranked defense in this game and two offenses that can move the ball. I think, despite the weather forecast, this game sets up for a high scoring 38 - 35 type of game. The side bet is a crap shoot here but I do think there is value in the OVER 57.5. Lock it up!
