Miami Ohio vs. Western Michigan Prediction

Western Michigan/Miami (Ohio) Over 149 (-110) Bet $100 to collect $190. DraftKings has the best odds, click here

We're at DraftKings for this one since they have the best possible number and price on this thing. The idea that we're getting 149 at -110 is crazy to me. Looking around the industry, everyone seems to have at least 150 with some shops going as high as 150.5. It's wild to me that a lone book would be at least one point under everyone else. Especially since the line opened at 148 at most shops and has been bet to this level. Feels weird.

Do you want a little honesty? I really only looked into this thing because it starts at 7:00 pm ET. There is no chance I'm staying up to watch LeBron break the NBA's all-time scoring record if I don't have some action first. I'd just fall asleep. Everyone knows that. Lucky for us, this college basketball game in Ohio popped up on my radar (more on that next week) and I think we can hammer it especially since it makes so much sense basketball-wise. I know it's a big number but we have two teams that match up well for such a climb.

The first thing we should look for in basketball is defense. Do teams take pride in it or no? We can safely say that neither of these programs cares much for defense. It's tough to figure out which team is worse at defending. I want to say Miami Ohio since they are 356th in defensive efficiency but Western Michigan is ranked 360 in the metric. That's important because the only time Western Michigan doesn't score in the 70s is when people play defense. We don't have to worry about that here. I'm guessing this thing ends with at least one team in the 80s while the other will stumble into the 70s. If you're familiar with math, that's over 149.
