The Ball State Cardinals will be looking to start a winning streak on the road as they head into Illinois to take on the Huskies. As for the Huskies they are coming off a shootout loss to the Kent State Golden Flashes in hopes of getting back on track Wednesday.
Ball State Cardinals
The Ball State Cardinals are starting to get some momentum to end their season as they enter this game off a huge win against the Akron Zips. If everything goes their way, this could be their fifth win in six games. Riding the hot team is always important in betting. The Cardinals are averaging 25.2 points per game which stems from a strong running game. They average nearly 130 rushing yards per game.
The passing game has been hit and miss as of late but the team averages 215 passing yards per game. The biggest key in success for this Cardinals team has come from quarterback Drew Pitt who rarely makes a mistake. He has 14 touchdowns on the season compared to his only four interceptions.
Even though they have had success on the defense, they have yet to reach the next level due to their defense. They are allowing nearly 28 points per game and if they even give NIU a chance to score they will lose this game. Friendly reminder, the Huskies dropped over 40 points in their last game
Northern Illinois Huskies
Speaking of the Huskies, they were recently riding an impressive five game winning streak but was snapped by the Golden Flashes of Kent State. This Huskies team is not one to mess with as they love to get into an offensive battle. NIU comes into this game averaging 31.7 points per game which is a league high in their conference. Just like the Cardinals, their offense comes from their running game which averages 222 yards per game.
NIU 100% has a stronger running game and could be the x-factor in winning this game. Quarterback Rocky Lombardi leads the charge for NIU with an impressive 12 touchdown season but holds six interceptions to his name. One costly mistake could switch the tide in this one.
Just like the Ball State Cardinals, the NIU Huskies struggle on the defensive front. They are allowing almost 34 points per game and gave up 52 points in their last game. If they allow another 50 points or even close to 30, there is no way they can stop the Cardinals.
