Central Michigan is 13-6-1 ATS in their last 20 road games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games following a win while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 games overall. Miami-Ohio is 6-15 ATS in their last 21 games overall and 5-12 ATS in their last 17 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 5-2 in their last 7 games overall.

I understand Miami-Ohio is at home and I’ve said before that I’m trying to not read too much into Central Michigan’s offensive numbers as the Chippewas played a lot of subpar competition early on in the year. However, the Chippewas are simply playing the better basketball coming into this one on the whole and are only being outscored by 2.4 points per game across their last 5 games while Miami-Ohio is being outscored by 5.4 points per game. The Chippewas have also been pretty good on the road as well for some time now so I’ll take a shot with the Chippewas and the free point in this one.
