Against The Spread Pick

Two teams who have been middle of the road this season face-off in the Ohio Bobcats and the Northern Illinois Huskies. The biggest issues for both of these teams have been consistency, which means you need to be careful betting this game. That being said the Huskies have been the better team as of late, winning each of their last two games and covering the spread in each of them. Their defense in the last game was good, giving up only 52 points, and that is going to be the difference in this game. Look for their defense to do enough to come away with a victory and a cover. Back the Huskies.

Over Under Pick

The Huskies are at home and they enjoy playing a slower pace of play which should trump in this game. On the season the Huskies are averaging and giving up 65 points per game. Away from home the Bobcats’ offense hasn’t been as great, averaging 66.3 per game. The under is 10-3 in the Huskies’ last 13 games, and 6-2 in the Huskies’ last eight games against the MAC.
