I don't see the BG coach leaving affecting this outcome too much.  Pitt has not impressed me all year and I love the MAC in bowl games.  Good luck.

I was at the Bowling Green/ Buffalo game & B Green wore down the Bulls D in the 2nd half of that game & won going away..as for the game vs N ILL they looked great...their D held Lynch most of the game...I just don't see Pitt keeping up in here..I think Johnson will have another big day & Bowling Green will win this one handily...B Green D will be tough on Pitt all day

B Green -6

The Falcons are 10-3 ATS. Pitt is 5-7. The most impressive number here is BGSU's defense, which gives up just over 14 points a game. They'll be facing a Pitt team that is 104th in total yards. Pitt will have trouble scoring.

BGSU - 5 1/2

Love BGSU here, just think they have everything clicking on both sides of the ball - balanced on O, and very effective on D...the list can go on.

BUT THE LINE IS JUST CRASHING, like it did in the BUF/SDSU game.  makes me fall into the dreaded second-guessing mentality.

I don't like laying money on MAC teams in bowls. Maybe someone can come up with their ATS record in bowls the last three or four years, but I think it is bad. No play.

Laying the points with BG.
Pitt has showed me nothing this season,whereas BG are a well
balanced team on both sides of the ball & coming off a huge win
against Northern Illinois.
Looking for BG to put this game out of reach by start of 4th Qtr.

I'll take Bowling green and the under.  Pitt didn't do much this year, and BG wants to send a message to the coach who deserted them.

Even though Pitt is 6-6 they have a better resume of quality opponents. Question is will Pitt be as excited as BG to be in this bowl game. Pitt +6

Bowling Green - 4 Over Pittsburgh!

Must run with BGSU and QB Matt Johnson and RB Travis Greene (1,575 YR) in this matchup!

Falcons have outscored opponents 223-44 in their last 5 games, and are now 5-1 at home!  Looking for Johnson and Greene to team up...and turn this one into a full-blown rout!

Bowling Green 5-0 ATS last 5 games!

Falcons now 8-2 vs. Vegas spread in their last 10 games!

Bowling Green - 4 Over Pittsburgh!   5 Unit Wager!

ATS RECORD, THE CURRENT LINE & THE LOCAL VENUE SCREAMS BG, BUT PIT HAS PLAYED 8 BOWL BOUND TEAMS VS ONLY 1 BY BG(CERTAINLY NOT COUNTING THE SHITSQUADS IN THEIR OWN CONFERENCE)

BG wins against this sad ACC team. Pitt wouldn't even be a top 3 team in the MAC. BG won't steamroll Pitt like they did against some of their conference opponents, but will score enough and limit Pitt's points with their stout D. BG and the under.

Really bummed about BG coach leaving because they looked like a strong play in this game.  All comes down to their attitude about the coach bailing on them.  If they are mad and focused I think they handle Pitt easily, if they are feeling sorry for themselves or act as if it doesn't matter, they could get upset.  I am leaning in the direction that athletes have pride and want to show it was their success, not the coach.  BG looked very good on both sides of the ball late in the year.  Pitt may have played better opponents but still didn't beat anyone they shouldn't have. so SOS doesn't do much unless you are comparing records.  Panther offense doesn't show much imagination, I think BG can shut it down. 

Taking BG and giving 4 points    Low to medium confidence.

Macallanlover makes a good point about the lack of imagination Pitt displays on the offensive side of the ball, it's pretty bad. I guess the line movement is due to the coach leaving and not sharp money but I'm not sure on the timeline. Bgs defense will be the only dominant unit on the field in this game. All of is makes it bg or no play. Think I will try bg -4.5

LOL, You know me too well. My head says no play but my heart says  bet on Bowling Green, can I resist the urge? Probably not. I'm a gambling degenerate and I don't like Pittsburgh.
