So we hit again on Toledo last night, pushing me to 3-1 in MACtion this season and 5-2 overall in college football ATS/totals. Despite them being my only loss so far this season in the MAC, I’m going back to Northern Illinois (#94) tonight to cover on the road against Buffalo (#117).
NIU -1.5 over Buffalo
NIU has been the surprise team of the MAC so far this season, being predicted to finish at the bottom of the West Division but currently possessing the best record in the conference at 7-3 overall and 5-1 in conference play. Their only blemish came in conference came two weeks ago against Kent State (#103) on the road, where they lost by 5 to the East Division preseason favorite.
Besides that, Northern Illinois has answered the bell at every other opportunity this year, taking down preseason West Division favorite Ball State (#86) last week, as well as quality opponents in Central Michigan (#87), Toledo (#72), and Eastern Michigan (#100). Buffalo is trending downwards, getting blown out by Miami (OH) and Bowling Green (#154) the past two weeks. With the MAC West likely on the line for them tonight with Central Michigan at Ball State, I like the Huskies to come out strong and take care of business like they have been all year and give Buffalo their 7th loss of the season.
All bets are -110 and 1.1u to win 1u unless stated otherwise.
