1.5 units on Miami Ohio +8 (-105) (risk 1.5 to return 2.93) RESULT: LOSS
Miami, Ohio has played better than expected this season with an 8-7 record. Their mark includes 7-5 ATS, considering that the Redhawks have no seniors on scholarship and several freshmen. Miami, Ohio had a three-game winning streak snapped in a loss at Toledo on Saturday as the Rockets shot 56.6 percent, which was too much for Miami to overcome even though it shot 48.3 percent itself. Logan McLane led the Redhawks with 25 points and Rod Mills Jr. added 20 points. Ball State has lost two straight at Kent State and then at home to Bowling Green. Taylor Persons led the Cardinals with 21 points against the Falcons, but his team shot only 4-of-25 from three-point range. Miami won the last meeting 49-47 in March and Ball State has covered the number just 21 of its last 65 home contests. Miami, Ohio has covered nine of its last 13 as an underdog and the road team is 6-1 ATS the last seven meetings. Play Miami, Ohio.
