Central Michigan Chippewas vs Ball State Cardinals Predictions 2/8/2022

 

With four wins in their previous five matches, the Cardinals are beginning to climb the MAC standings, and they made headlines last Friday by defeating first-place Toledo, who claimed nine straight matches.

 

Ball State remained in command for much of the game, with Toledo never leading by more than three points. The Cardinals finally built a 37-17 lead before fighting off a late Rockets charge thanks to a strong offensive effort.

 

Ball State boasts a well above average offense, averaging 74.9 points per game while shooting 50.9 percent from two and 36.7 percent from three, good for 45th in the US.

 

The Cardinals struggled defensively, surrendering 76.8 points per game and enabling opponents to shoot 51.4 percent from two and 35.9 percent from beyond the arc, all of which are ranked 310th or worse in the country.

 

  • The University of Ball State Cardinals is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Ball State’s last 6 matches against Central Michigan.
  • Ball State is 4-1 SU in their last 5 matches in the Mid-American Conference.

Central Michigan Chippewas vs Ball State Cardinals. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Ball State Cardinals. The Cardinals are now ranked 135th in KenPom offensive efficiency after thrashing Toledo last time out, owing to the outstanding balance and four scorers in double figures, led by the dynamic rookie Sparks.

 

With a 54.3 effective field goal % surrendered, Central Michigan has one of the worst defenses in the country, and their sub-300 rebounding and free throw rate won’t help things in this battle. With the absences of Jackson Jr. and Lopez, the Chippewas had the least efficient offense in the MAC during league play.

 

The Chippewas’ performance against Buffalo on Saturday demonstrated how far they fell behind the top echelon of the MAC and given their recent record, Ball State will cruise at home. The Ball State Cardinals will win and cover 77-65.
