Prediction

Toledo comes into this game as the 87th ranked team in this week’s power rankings. Ohio comes into this game as the 267th ranked team. Toledo has done a great job of covering the spread on the road, currently covering at 40.0%. Ohio has not faired quite as good at home, only covering in 28.6% of there games. One of the best parts of Toledo’s game has been their ability to shoot the three.  Toledo has been shooting 38.2% from beyond the arch, while Ohio is only shooting at 34.0%. Even on the road, 2 points are not enough to cover against Toledo. I am taking Toledo -2 in this one.

Best Bet: Toledo -2

Prediction

After a decent start to the season, Eastern Michigan has dropped there first 5 conference games. Eastern Michigan has been struggling across the board as of late. One example has been there horrendous 3 point shooting. Currently, they are shooting at 26.6% on the season while Bowling Green has been shooting 33.2%. Eastern Michigan has also struggled to shoot free throws, only shooting at 62.5%. Bowling Green, on the other hand, has shot free throws at a slightly more impressive 74.4%. Even though Bowling Green has struggled to cover at times this year, 7.5 points just aren’t enough. I am taking Bowling Green -7.5 in this one.

Best Bet: Bowling Green -7.5
