The underdog is 9-2 ATS in these two teams last 11 head to head meetings.

Both of these teams come into this game struggling and both teams do not play good defense. Bowling Green has the home court advantage and one of the highest scoring offenses in the conference, while also having one of the worst defenses. I am taking Bowling Green at home, but beware of that horrible defense.
