Cokin’s Corner, Saturday 11/16/19

  • November 15, 2019

Four college football games on my card today. Lower volume than usual, but no need to force any action. Hope to have something solid on the ice, where things have gone really well in the first quarter of the NHL season.

I’ll have a new package offer ready by tomorrow that will be found at the Cokin’s Picks tab.

Meanwhile, here’s one of the four plays I like today/

339 CENTRAL MICHIGAN at 340 BALL STATE

Take: CMU +2

This is a big game for both CMU and Ball State. The winner can capture the West if Western Michigan loses at Northern Illinois in its season finale. I believe the Chippewas are the better team in this matchup. That’s based on a very big differential in yardage in conference games. Central Michigan is outgaining MAC opponents by an impressive 176 yards per game. Ball State is only +8 per game. The Cardinals have faced only a minimally tougher MAC slate to this point. That’s a pretty huge split for a game that’s lined this closely. The game is pretty even  on overall power ratings, but the stats clearly indicate CMU. I expect plenty of offense and I’ll side with Central Michigan plus the small spot to come out with the win.
