PICK: I’m going to stick with Bowling Green here. The Falcons have been pretty darn good at scoring so far this year, notching 78 or more points in every outing and getting several different players involved. Wright State only has a couple of appearances under their belt, but over their first pair they’ve done a pretty good job at spreading the ball around. Still, I think Bowling Green is on a nice run and will continue that with a cover in this one.
