Bet on Chicago State vs. Northwestern

Northwestern has 10 straight meetings with Chicago State. Only the last two have been lined and they have split those games at the betting window. Chicago State hasn’t been able to put up much of a fight against anyone. If Northwestern can’t handle itself in this game, the Wildcats have bigger problems than they realize. The public betting is slightly with Chicago State and the points, but I think Northwestern does what it needs to to cover.
