Prediction:
Last week we predicted that Ball State would have trouble with MAC foe Northern Illinois, but the Cardinals proved us wrong when they spanked the Huskies 45-14. We won’t make the same mistake twice. The Cardinals are 6-1-1 against the spread this year and 2-0 vs. Miami of Ohio since 1992, including 1-0 over the last three seasons. Plus, the Redbirds don’t offer the same challenge as the NIU did last week, and Ball State had zero issues. While the Cardinals haven’t been as sharp on the road this year as they have been at home, we don’t think they’ll have a problem covering the 19.5-point spread, especially considering they’re still vying for a BCS bowl game. We predict Ball State over Miami of Ohio 44-10.
