5* MAC Championship Blue Chip ATS Knockout

---Bowling Green +4.5---

While Northern Illinois comes in undefeated and have a Heisman Trophy finalist in Jordan Lynch, my money is on the defensive-minded Falcons. Bowling Green ranks 7th in the country in total defense, giving up just 296.6 ypg and are 5th in scoring defense (13.8 ppg). I believe they will be able to slow down Lynch and really make like difficult for an offense that has to be able to run the football. The other big key here is that a lot of people are overlooking the fact that Northern Illinois ranks 69th in total defense (412.1 ypg) and 103rd in pass defense (264.2 ypg). Not a lot of people are aware of just how talented Bowling Green is offensively. The Falcons come in 24th in rushing (209.7 ypg) and 40th in passing (245.4 ypg). Not only do I like Bowling Green to cover the 4.5-point spread, but I think there's a good possibility they win this game outright. BET THE FALCONS +4.5!
