Morgan State is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall while the over is 5-1-2 in their last 8 road games against a team with a losing home record. Bowling Green is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a losing record while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 home games.
I get why Bowling Green’s favored at home in this game, but the Morgan State Bears have been sneaky good at covering the number early on this season and Bowling Green just has a massive issues with being able to keep points off of the board. I want no part of this Bowling Green defense, especially with how well Morgan State is scoring on the other side. Give me the Bears and the points.
