ANDREW’S FREE PICK
I’ll take a stab on Bowling Green here. Probably not touching this one, though; there’s admittedly not much intrigue here. Bowling Green is struggling right now and sitting on a nine-game losing streak. The Falcons managed to get a win the last time these teams met up back on January 3 at EMU Convocation Center however, taking it 91-65 with a 46-31 second half. Even with the losing streak in tow Bowling Green should be able to play fairly well at home in this rematch. I like the Falcons to power out the cover in a fairly competitive game.
