The Central Michigan Chippewas are 2-4-1 ATS in their last seven games as a road underdog. The Ball State Cardinals are 4-4 ATS in their last eight games as a home favorite. Central Michigan heads into this game playing at a high level on both sides of the ball and has won three of the last four meetings against Ball State. The Ball State Cardinals need this game to drastically improve their bowl potential, but they've been shaky defensively and have allowed 30-plus points in four of their last seven games. Motivation is on the side of Ball State, but I still feel like we're getting the better and hotter team with the points. Hard to pass this up.
