The Ball State Cardinals have been hit or miss all season long and have been fade material on the road against the number these last couple of years. The Bowling Green Falcons are playing their best ball of the season right now, both straight up and against the number, and they'll have the best player on the court for this contest. I'm not trying to step in front of Bowling Green in its current form. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Falcons.
