Northern Illinois - 33                             Ball St - 23

Cardinals +18.5                                   

In honor of mi amigo Irisheyez, I'm taking his Ball St CARDS PLUS THE GENEROUS NUMBER to give the Huskies all they can handle. Plus I like the fact that the Huskies have troubles covering as favs off bb ats wins.

Cardinals -  probably under  This Bud's for you Irish

Should be a great game...N ILL wants the MAC title...Ball St has been playing some pretty good ball....I didn't think the line would be -18.5 for this game...for sure looking at OVER the total here once it opens..I'm guessing 68-75 range for this total......I'm feeling a shootout between these 2....Good Luck on your wagers...

You guys are kray. Northern ill is going to keep tempo here with the high scoring going on. They feel confident and this ball state defense is not enough to keep northern ill from putting up 40-45 on this board. Ball state is going to be stuck with 2 TD's and 3 field goals. Well, thats 20 points and not enough for the cover!

-18.5 FOR ME

What a fantastic week, great job guys.  We cashed another 4 units last night on GB pounding the Vikings for the very easy cover.  Like I said lats night guys - dont pay attention to useless stats or trends or someone worried about "back door covers" - that game had blowout written all over it, and we got paid very handsomely as a result.  Cap the games guys, use your methods and systems, do that and you would've made a killing last night also.

29-14-1 on posted plays starting 10.31, up 25 units

16-6-1 last week on posted plays..

Early leans on No Ill and Under here pending further capping.

Lets keep the awesome momentum going this week!

 I always like teams with balance offensive attack.  No Illinois rushing avg 250 yds/game & 235 passing yds/game and this will be Ball St's third road game.  As for the O/U, my calculation is 65 total points.

Nothern Illinois -17 in a close one

Under 71.5

Well so far Tuesday under record..

3-0 with totals ranging from 55-66

0-2 with totals ranging from 68-70 (0-2 with Tuesday Toledo games)

3-2 so far this season for Tuesday under.

The total for this one is ranging from 71.5 - 73.

Going under in this one is scary as both teams defense just flat out sucks...sorry no nicer way to put it. The only assuring thing for to keep this one under the total is that NIU seems to play better defense at home allowing 22ppg.

Here are some numbers for this game...

Ball St

7-3 ats as road underdogs of 10.5 - 21 points

5-2 ats off a conference rival win

4-2 ats vs conference opponent


6-4 ats as a home favorite

11-5 ats coming off a rival conference win

10-4 ats at home

4-2 ats vs conference opponent (3-0 ats this season)

This season 3-1 ats and 4-0 SU playing on Tuesday

First half stats...

Ball St avg 13 points ppg in the first half as the home team avg 25 ppg in the first half.

NIU avg 27 ppg at home in the first half while the road team avg 8 ppg in the first half.

Advantage = NIU in the first half

Ball St avg 22 ppg total on the road while the home team avg 36 total ppg.

NIU avg 46 ppg at home while the road team avg 22 ppg.

Advantage = NIU on final

Looking at avg points per game between the two if you take the under you better be prepared to squeeze your nuts. I'm looking at at total score between 68-75 points.

Anyway hope that helps....but numbers don't matter as anything can happen on any given day. Just provided some reading material basically

Good luck to everyone

I'll be back to post my play later if I do decide to touch this one

Neither teams plays defense. Mac teams usually destroy the overs. Most mac teams throw the hell out the ball. This might lead you to easy over. Nill runs mostly. N ill coming off 3 game road trip. Gonna be tired. They are 2-3 ats with double digit lines. Ball st not as terrible as last year. I see my boy irisheyez coming off the bench and throwing the covering block or tackle, cant remember def or off.  N ill is not consistent enough to get a blowout.  Ball St and UND for the large
