The Central Michigan Chippewas (16-7 / 5-5 MAC) and Bowling Green Falcons (16-7 / 8-2 MAC) each come off tough losses last time out, but they have a chance to rebound this Tuesday night at the Stroh Center as they meet for the second time this season.

The Falcons took the first meeting between the teams back on January 12 early in MAC play, 97 – 87, although it took overtime to see Bowling Green eventually go on to take the 10-point victory.

Bowling Green just lost their second MAC game of the year after losing to Toledo this past Saturday, 78 – 71. The Falcons find themselves in a 4-way battle for the top spot in the MAC East Division standings, and their schedule down the stretch will surely provide plenty of tests to come.

The Chippewas fell to .500 in conference play after losing their last outing to the Buffalo Bulls, 90 – 76, although that score might surprise anyone who caught the first half of that affair. The Chipps let a big first-half lead evaporate into a 14-point loss, so the momentum is certainly not in their favor headed to tonight’s road tilt as 7-point dogs.

Chipps Getting A Touchdown In Bowling Green As Road Dogs

The line setters are obviously expecting that ugly second half against Buffalo to carry over to tonight’s affair in Bowling Green, and it was amazing to watch Central Michigan completely fall apart after the start they had against Buffalo this past Saturday.

Senior guard Shawn Roundtree certainly did his part to not the loss happen, as he found his way to 26 points with 5 boards but the 8 turnovers, most of which came in the 2nd half, really ended up hurting in the end.

The Chipps extended their lead to 32 – 14 after Roundtree nailed a 3-pointer at the 7:53 mark of the first half, and it looked like Central Michigan was going to give Buffalo all they could handle. The Chippewas had their lead shrink to 43 – 38 by the half, and then no one knows what head coach Keno Davis said in the locker room, but whatever it was he better never say it again!

Chipps leading scorer Larry Austin Jr. fouled out with only eight points, and he committed seven turnovers too, and I saw most of those happen in the 2nd half too. I mean 15 turnovers between your two senior guards in a road game against Buffalo? NOT SO GOOD GUYS! You two deserve a Double Come On Man!

After I threw up again, I decided to look at the box score, and then my stomach was all over the place some more. 23 F**king turnovers! Two Starters fouled out of the game!

And the two runs from Buffalo that were just extended and brutal really just set the two teams apart, and now the challenge is to pull your shit together in only a few days and take on Bowling Green? On The Road?

This might be a long night kids, but we will see how the Chipps rebound tonight.

Falcons Needing To Build On 11-1 Record At The Stroh!

The Falcons had their 12 – 1 run come to a halt last time out against Toledo, 78 – 71, as Toledo continues to run away with the MAC West Division.

The Falcons are battling with Buffalo, Akron, and Kent State for the top-spot in the MAC East Division standings, which could be a #1 or #2 seed in the MAC Tournament that isn’t all that far away. (Oh stop it, we will wake up tomorrow and it will be here, because time flies)

Have you seen what the Falcons have left on their MAC schedule to run out the regular season?

I mean battle-tested will be the word when the MAC Tournament comes because of what lies ahead of this team.

Bowling Green will face Akron twice, and play NIU, Kent State, and Buffalo among their last eight games of the season, which if you are looking is going to be challenging to navigate.

The rankings won’t have Bowling Green near the top of much in any major category, although that nasty free throw percentage sure stands out as ugly as hell! (66.5% / Ranked 301st)

Ouch man, and we all know these close games down the stretch will certainly have a few come down to how you are doing from the free throw line.

Sophomore guard Justin Turner is having a fantastic second campaign for the Falcons, although he was a load last year after having his first season cut short to injury. Turner is grabbing 18.1 PPG this year, which is up 3 points from his average a year ago, although he has been held under the double-digit mark the last 2 outings.

Senior forward Demajeo Wiggins has been a double-double machine lately, as he has hit at least 10 & 10 in 4 of his last 5 games, and has 15 double-doubles in his final campaign in the Falcons frontcourt.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

After seeing that complete meltdown with my own eyes last weekend, I cannot invest in the Chipps with this line on the road. We were getting +16 in Buffalo and got lucky to hit it, and I feel no luck like that coming our way tonight.

Bowling Green -7 is the 3* Play on the Side.

Prediction: Bowling Green -7

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

I am not buying that we will see a repeat of the first game either, which was an overtime high-scoring affair that just isn’t what will happen tonight.

Bowling Green wins this game 80 – 70, and there is your 150 points that keeps us under the number.

The Under 158 is the 3* Play on the Total.

Prediction: Under 158
