5* MAC Game of the Year on Ball State -3
I'm fading the struggling Central Michigan Chippewas here as they go up against a Ball State squad that has been playing well.

Central Michigan has turn in three straight disappointing performances since its upset win at Iowa, and I expect it to get whacked again.

Ball State has won 2 in a row and 3 of the last 4 in the series. It has also won it last 2 at Central Michigan.

The Chippewas have been a terrible investment as they are just 4-22 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The Cardinals, on the other hand, have been golden at 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games overall.

The Chippewas are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 home games, 0-11 ATS in their last 11 games after allowing more than 200 yards rushing in their previous game and 0-8 ATS in their last 8 games after allowing less than 170 yards passing in their previous game.

Central Mich is 0-6 ATS the last 2 seasons when playing against a team with a winning record. It has lost by an average score of 44.7 to 23.0 in this situation.

The Chipps are 0-6 ATS all-time under coach Dan Enos after allowing 31 points or more in 3 straight games. They have lost by an average score of 34.5 to 25.0 in this situation. They are even 0-6 ATS all-time under coach Enos after a game in which they didn't force a single turnover. They have lost by an average score of 34.8 to 20.7 in this situation.

Lastly, the Chippewas are 0-6 ATS after failing to cover the number in 4 out of their last 5 games over the last 2 seasons. Lay the points.
