Thanks lottamoneynono.  I'll take your advice into consideration and go light on the action since I like Ohio with the points on this game.  I'll also wait for the line to increase!

I like Ball St. at home. They seem to stay focused better game to game. I thinks they have the better QB. In the running department they both seem pretty equal. Receivers dep. goes to B-ST. Their schedual was stronger and that make for a better team & play on both side of the ball. I like their special teams better. I see them covering here. May not be as close as you think. Ball ST. 28---20.

Thanks to lottamoneynono, I decided to wait for the line to move favorable to OHIO and it did.  It initially opened with Ball St. giving 3.5.  Now, it's up to 5!  With O-tie's comment on Ball St., I may as well wait till game day before I take action on OHIO....the line might get better!

Ball St  - 33                                            Ohio - 26

Irisheyez's Cardinals -5                  under 63

Betting against Solich has been profitable this year. He has a pretty decent weekday ats record over the past few seasons which makes this a high risk play. Ball on the other hand has reeled off 4 ats wins in a row.  This club was projected to be a middle of the pack mac team. Lembo has his Cards believing and a win here probably puts Ball in the Little Caesars Bowl in Detroit Mich.

Irisheyez will be dancing in Motown the day after Christmas  

Cardinals - Under

Ohio's special teams was god awful last week and Tettleton wasn't playing his best either.  The repeat of the pissed poor perfermance will not fly with Ball St as they will shred the Ohio team part. Ohio has to play a perfect game to beat Ball ST, which is very unlikely

Ohio's offense is slow moving as a turtle. Might  slow the game and scoring down.  Might take  the under

Agree the under appears to be the best play on the board. Both offenses move the ball but not in chunks. Doesn't hurt either that Ohio's offense has been as you said "slow as a turtle". Totally defeats the purpose of a no huddle attack as they take 15-20 seconds to even lineup the D can easily substitute.

Ball st is just the better all around team. They could easily be a one loss team if they didn't turn the ball over 3 times to kent st. I think Ball st wins this one by two tds!   35-21 BALL ST. I like under as well.

Well looking at Bowling Green and Ball St.  Differences you will see
that Bowling Green is quite good at stopping the run about 105yds per game which is pretty darn good, while Ohio runs about 203 yds per game.  Yes Ohio has a crappy SOS in which they rank 164, but also don't forget to win the MAC East, they need to win both their last 2 games to catch Kent St.  It is all about match ups here.  Ball St gives up about 230 yds rushing per game and also about 225 yds through the air.  Shows that their pass def is better than their run D.  Comparing Ball St and Bowling Green is entirely different.  Ball St. is closer to a Marshall than Bowling Green.

Ohio is being way undervalued. They have been inconsistent at times but they will win outright here. Total seems a little high. OHIO and OV for the medium

Thats really what im thinkin too man.  The line keeps going up.  Its  plus 7 on bovada.  Lot of points to cover on espn U .  everyone whos not watching nba/ncaa basketball will tune to espn U for the  epic "ohio vs ball st clash".   haa.  i see the total going over as well.  but overall, i feel a lot more comfortable getting the TD. prediction: 

prediction:    ball st 34 ohio 31

The line movement freaks me out a lil bit. But on paper there is no reason OHIO can't cover. Last year these two teams played each other...it took ball ST +3 in turnovers to beat Ohio by a fg. Same qbs this time around. Leaning on buying .5 and playing OHIO at +7
