Both of these teams have been a little bit hit or miss this season, but it's the Ohio Bobcats who have the clear edge on the offensive side of the court and have shown more promise defensively. It's fair to say Ohio is the better team here, while the Bowling Green Falcons have also had serious issues covering numbers dating back to last season. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the home team.
