Prediction

Bowling Green has turned the ball over less than any other team in the country. So far this season they have only turned the ball over 13.9% of the time. This ball control has helped them get off to a great start in MAC play. Bowling Green comes into this game as the 125th ranked team in the country, while Western Michigan comes in as the 266th ranked team. Bowling Green looks like a team that is getting everything rolling at the right time. I am taking Bowling Green -3.5 in this one.

Best Bet: Bowling Green -3.5

Prediction

Davidson comes into this game after an overtime win against Saint Joseph’s on Saturday. Richmond travels to Davidson as 3 point underdogs. The best part of Richmond’s game this season has been there ability to shoot free throws. So far this season they have been shooting free throws at 80.4%, while Davidson has only been shooting at 75.6%. Richmond has covered the spread in 8 of there 16 games while Davidson has only covered in 5 of there 15 games. My bet in this one is Richmond +3.

Best Bet: Richmond +3

Prediction

San Diego State has started the season off about as good as you could hope, winning their first 17 games. San Diego heads up North to take on Fresno State in this one. Fresno State comes into this game fresh of a loss last week to New Mexico. San Diego State has also done a decent job of covering the spread this year, currently sitting at 11-5 against the spread. One big part of San Diego State’s impressive start has been there shooting from beyond the arch. Currently, they are shooting at 38.1% while Fresno State is only shooting at 32.1%. San Diego State is my best bet in this one.

Best Bet: San Diego State -6.5
