Bowling Green vs. Central Michigan Prediction

I’m on Central Michigan here. The Chippewas have played their best ball at home this season and have arguably the best defense in the conference. Bowling Green’s had some solid performances of their own, but Central Michigan’s been even better and I think the Chips get it done at home. Give me CMU.
