Miami (OH) picked up a much-needed win against Western Michigan, however, the RedHawks have struggled overall so of late, losing 8 of their last 11 games, which includes an 87-83 loss at Bowling Green. Bowling Green has struggled on the defensive end this season, however, the Falcons have been outstanding on the offensive end, ranking 7th in scoring offense & 65th in three-pointers made per game, and as the Falcons are just the better team here, I think the play here is to take Bowling Green and the point. Good Luck!
