We have two teams on the struggle bus, so you can make a case for either side here. However, this is a spot where I usually take my chance with the points and call it a day. I'm not laying chalk with either of these teams. It just so happens the Central Michigan Chippewas are at home and have a clear edge on the offensive side of the ball. I'll take my chances with the free bucket.
