Against the Spread Pick
When you score like CMU does sometimes those totals are tough, you never get to have a night off. That is why it is not surprising that the Chippewas are just 9-8 O/U on the season. When these teams met last season the total was set at 160 and the game came in under. This total is a little lower and I think we will cash on that over. Fun game here.
Over Under Pick
The Huskies are on a roll. They have won four straight and covered in three of them. NIU plays a grind it out style scoring in the sixties. Eugene German is once again averaging close to 20ppg but he is the only player in double figures this season. Basically, if he is not on his game the Huskies are toast, and everyone knows it. Lacey James is one of the few true bigs in the MAC and he gives the Huskies an inside presence on the glass. He is not much of a scorer though. While NIU is rolling the Rockets have been grounded lately. They have lost three straight, all as favourites. They play a faster style but the results have not been there. Marreon Jackson leads the team in scoring at 19ppg and played every minute in their last game, a loss to Eastern Michigan. Against German will be a fun battle. As will be James vs. Luke Knapke. One of the few players he looks up to. Toledo gets this one.
