The Falcons are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Spartans are 16-5-1 ATS in their last 22 home games. The over is 25-12 in Falcons last 37 overall. The under is 7-3 in Spartans last 10 overall.

The Bowling Green Falcons just can’t get out of their own way due to an offense that doesn’t shoot the ball well, and they’re losing in the underdog role by an average of 7.8 points. The Norfolk State Spartans will be up for this game, considering they don’t get upper level conference teams at home often. Norfolk State is winning in the favorite role by an average of 8.3 points. I’ll lay the small chalk with the Spartans.
