Bowling Green vs. Kent State Pick

Kent State vs Bowling Green Over 57 (+105) Bet $100 to collect $205. DraftKings (Alt Line) has the best odds, click here

We're going to good old DraftKings for this one and we're shopping in the alt section. Just go to "Game Lines" and scroll down to the Alternative Totals. That's where they keep the gold. FanDuel has something similar but they have 57.5 (+108) over there. That's not bad, but I like the 57 better. What's crazy is the fact that 55 is -110 as a standard line but it's -120 in the alt section at DraftKings. I don't want to say it, but it may be smarter to take the 55 (-110) over the plus money for two extra points.

Bowling Green vs. Kent State Prediction

This game could be MACtion at its finest people; where nonsense just prevails over actual football. That's why we're betting and watching these games, so we're getting what we want here. If we're being honest, neither one of these teams play defense and the weather should be pretty nice in Bowling Green tonight too. We're being set up pretty nicely and I'm not sure how the books are missing it.

On the Kent State side of things, they just need to play a team that they can run on. Bowling Green is that team. Once the run game gets going, the skies could open up and points will just rain down. It will be glorious. There's only one minor issue and it's the fact that we don't know if Dante Cephas or Devontez Walker will play. If they don't, the Flashes' pass game could take a hit. But keep in mind, they still scored 20 points against Ball State without Cephas (I know Walker scored in that game before leaving with an injury so save it, haters). With how fast they play, they could easily get to the mid-20s without those guys. They can still run with Marquez Cooper.

Now the haters are going to say that Bowling Green has been good defensively over the last three weeks, but have they? Every team they've played since October 1 has been ranked outside of the top 100 in yards per play. They still gave up 38 to one of them (Buffalo). What the hell is that about? Kent State is 65th in the nation in the yards per play metric. They move the ball and once that happens, I think Bowling Green has the offense to play along. The Flashes have given up at least 27 points to everyone they've played in the last four weeks. If Kent State's receivers play, this game could be a 52-31 type affair. Even if they don't, I still think it gets over 57. Feels right.
