After last nights games, it's hard to imagine any of the MAC games going under the total. Tonight I've got two games going over and one staying under.
Northern Illinois vs Ball State
Ball State ended up beating Eastern Michigan by 7 last week, a much better team then NI. Not impressed with this young NI team, the 49-30 result against Buffalo appears to be a mirage. I'm also not laying two touchdowns here with Ball State. My only play on this game is over the total, which is now at 62.
Toledo vs Eastern Michigan
Toledo should have won last week, as they were the better team most of the game. Western Michigan is solid however and pulled it out in the end. Now Toledo has to go in and face an EM team that held Kent State to 27 points their first game and almost beat Ball State on the road last week. I'm siding with EM in this one, ML and +7. I'm also going with the over, as I had the under in last weeks Toledo/WM game and felt like an idiot after the game got underway.
Western Michigan vs Central Michigan
This game has been the most difficult to handicap for me this week. Originally I was on Central Michigan and the under and you'll see my indecisiveness in my picks. Total move down to 58 from 59.5 and now back up to 58.5. I'm seeing a lower scoring, ugly game and after looking a little harder at CM's offense I'm not impressed, especially considering their competition the past few weeks. I'm now going with Western Michigan and the under.
Thanks for reading, new to Pick Monitor but I am digging the website and look forward to posting here often.
