Winning Props Bets

In the Toledo matchup back on Tuesday, Miami-OH was down by 11 points at halftime. The RedHawks got better from there but still lost 75-72. Mekhi Lairy was tops in scoring with 17 points, seven assists and four rebounds. 

Over on the Western Michigan side, they were 4-6 over their first 10 games this year with wins over Hope, Fort Wayne, SE Louisiana and Aquinas. Since then it’s been a five-game losing streak to Notre Dame, Toledo, Ohio, Eastern Michigan and Buffalo. 

In the Buffalo game Tuesday, the Broncos had a 34-33 edge in the first half but faltered from there in an eventual 78-64 loss. Both Markeese Hastings and B. Artis White scored 12 points apiece, combining for five rebounds and two assists. 

The Broncos are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 at home and 2-5 ATS in the last seven overall. The under is 3-1-1 in Western Michigan’s last five overall

Meanwhile, the Redhawks are 0-4 ATS in the last four Saturday games and 2-6-2 ATS in their last 10 after an ATS loss. Miami-OH is 1-5 ATS in their last six overall. 

PICK: I’m probably taking Miami-OH here. It’s something of a coin flip, though. The RedHawks are on a pretty ugly run lately with seven losses over their last nine games. That said, Miami-OH is still scoring fairly well. They’ve hit 67 points or more in eight of those nine games. Western Michigan is struggling as well: the Broncos have been at 64 points or fewer in four of the last five (all losses). If Miami-OH can get their offense going early in this one they shouldn’t have an issue covering.
