The Eastern Michigan Eagles lock horns with the Ball State Cardinals in the MAC college basketball playoffs.
The Ball State Cardinals dropped four of five to end the year after a 64-57 loss to the visiting Northern Illinois Huskies as a five point favorite.
Tahai Teague kept the Cardinals in the game with 15 points and eight rebounds while Tayler Persons netted 14 points and added six boards and three assists.
KJ Walton gave Ball State ten points followed by Brachen Hazen and Trey Moses with six and five point with Moses totaling 16 rebounds and five assists.
The Eastern Michigan Eagles had won four of five before ending the season with a 64-58 defeat at the Toledo Rockets as a nine point road dog.
Paul Jackson was the Eagles top threat with 17 points and three assists followed by Elijah Minnie with 15 points and eight rebounds.
The twosome of Kevin McAdoo and James Thompson IV gave Eastern Michigan eight points apiece with Thompson hauling in eleven rebounds.
Ball State Cardinals are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games vs. a team with a winning home record and are 3-14 ATS in their last 17 games overall and are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games.
Eastern Michigan Eagles are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up loss and are 18-7 ATS in their last 25 vs. Mid-American and are 13-6 ATS in their last 19 games following a ATS win.
Under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings and favorite is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings and home team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
Eastern Michigan is looking for a third win against Ball State so I think this will be tight throughout. I’ll go small on the Eagles…
