Randy’s Free Pick
The Ohio Bobcats are the better team that plays their best at home, and they're capable of blowing the doors off here at home. However, Northern Illinois isn't a pushover, as it's playing decent ball right now and competes on the road, where it loses by an average of 6.9 points. Northern Illinois is also 10-5 ATS on the road. Lot of points. Give me Northern Illinois.
