Blog Picks (14-10-1) (1 Loss in a Row)


I studied the MAC all summer in hopes of weekday MAction. Did not happen, but this is a conference i follow closely. It’s a real head-scratcher: Why is Eastern Michigan the underdog against Western Michigan? If you delve into the stats, you’ll discover that Western Michigan has had a tough time on the road, losing all five of their away games. Meanwhile, Eastern Michigan is red hot, having covered the spread in their last four games and coming out victorious in two of their last three.

What’s even more fascinating is Eastern Michigan’s recent dominance over Western Michigan. They’ve not only clinched four consecutive wins against them but have also covered the spread in the last five meetings when they were considered the underdogs. This trend is too compelling to overlook, and it’s happening once more as they find themselves in an underdog position in this long-standing rivalry.

It’s genuinely baffling that Eastern Michigan isn’t the favored team, especially when they’re playing on their home turf. Eastern Michigan has been on a winning streak, securing victories in their last five home games, marking the second-longest such streak in the MAC.

In an extraordinary milestone for their program, Eastern Michigan has achieved four straight wins over Western Michigan. This is particularly noteworthy since their rival has struggled when playing away from home this season. Betting on the home team in this matchup is a tantalizing proposition.

Even though Eastern Michigan averages slightly under 19 points per game, they’ve managed to secure victories in various conference games, a feat their rival hasn’t been able to replicate. When you add all these factors together, it’s challenging to resist the allure of Eastern Michigan in this spot. They have the momentum, a history of success, and the home-field advantage, making them a highly compelling choice for this matchup.
