The Bowling Green Falcons are probably the better team here and should be favored, but they've also been horrible against the number dating back to last season and aren't a club I'm laying massive chalk with. The Central Michigan Chippewas are also an above average offensive team that's scored no less than 79 points in five of their last six games. Expect a high scoring contest where free points could be key. Give me the Central Michigan Chippewas and the points.
