MACtion, Baby, MACtion: Tuesday November 5th Gambling Primer

It's back. What dreams are made of: MACTION. 

Ball State @ Western Michigan (-6.5, O/U 64), 8:00 PM, ESPN 2:

My first #MACtion play of the year will be in this game. 

Ball State has been a pleasant surprise in the MAC this year, but I still believe they will be outmatched in this game across the board. WMU ranks 57th in FEI and 80th in SP+. It looks like they are the best team in the MAC. 

They've played a tougher schedule than Ball State (36th vs. 98th). Ball State's bottom-30 offense will struggle to keep up with an explosive WMU offense that ranks 27th in FEI. 

Plus, we have the Big Cat juju going for us:

Pick: WMU -6.5

Kent State @ Toledo (-6.5, O/U 63), 7:00 PM, CBSSN: 

Two pretty bad teams matchup in Ohio tonight to start off #MACtion. Both these teams rank in the bottom 20 according to both FEI and SP+

This line opened at -7.5 and has been bet down to -6.5. 

Toledo will be starting their third-string QB:

Kent State is 3-5 and tonight will be a huge help to their bowl chances if they win. Can they? Who knows, it's MACtion. My numbers have this at Toledo -10.34, so off 3.84-points from the current line. With that being said, I lean Toledo. 

Lean: Toledo -6.5

Picks:

WMU -6.5
