Ball State Cardinals
After dropping two straight, Ball State will hit the road to take on a lowly Northern Illinois squad. They were blown out by 24 points in their last contest against Central Michigan as they shot only 36% from the field.
Offensively they rank 182nd in efficiency. On the road they rank 126th in PPG, 167th in FG% and 202nd in 3PT%.
Defensively they rank 128th in efficiency. They don’t do a lot of good defensively on the road as they rank 200th in PPG, 202nd in 3PT% and 160th in RPG. At least they contest shots as they have a FG% of 44.83%.
This is a battle-tested squad that decided to spice up their non-conference schedule as it ranks 53rd overall. I expect them to show up on the road despite their recent form.
Northern Illinois Huskies
In their latest contest they didn’t put up much of a fight as they were blown out by 30 points to Toledo. Now, losers of three straight, Northern Illinois will look to snap that against Ball State on Senior Night.
They rank 183rd in offensive efficiency. At home they average 76 PPG, while they shoot nearly 48% from the field. They do struggle from beyond the arc ranking 215th overall.
On the defensive side they have been pretty putrid ranking 300th overall in efficiency. At home they rank 168th in PPG and 215th in FG%. They fare better against protecting the three-pointer as only allow 31% of them to fall.
This game is about pride for Northern Illinois as their season is all but over. I expect them to have an all-out effort against Ball State.

4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Ball State -4
Teams usually show up on Senior Night, but they only have one Senior who doesn’t play. Although Ball State hasn’t played well in their last two contests, I like them to pull away late. Lay the points.
