I'm playing on Ball State/Kent State OVER the total. I believe that this O/U number could easily be higher. When these teams last met, almost exactly one year ago, the O/U line was 151.5. They combined for 163. The previous two meetings both had O/U lines of 145. Those games produced 149 and 155 points. The one before that was the last meeting here at Kent State. That one had an O/U line of 147.5 and finished with 168. Indeed, these teams have a definite history of putting up some points, when facing each other. True, Ball State has been involved in some low-scoring games of late. Thats the reason we're working with such a low number. However, keep in mind that Kent State's last four games have all finished with at least 135. In fact, the Golden Flashes have seen 14 of their last 15 finish with 135 or more. The only exception was a 130-point game at WMU on 1/18. Their last 16 have all finished with at least 130. As for the Cards' recent low-scoring games, the OVER is 6-2-1 the last nine, 2-0-1 this season, when they were off b2b games where they scored 65 or less. Look for this one to prove higher-scoring than many will be expecting.
