RV: 5* CONFERENCE TOURNAMENT BLOWOUT SYSTEM PLAY
Northern Illinois vs. Eastern Michigan,
03/05/2012 19:00 EDT,
Score: 55 - 52
Point Spread: -8½/-110 Eastern Michigan
On Monday the NCAAB Conference tourney play is on Eastern Michigan. Game 526 at 7:00 eastern. E. Michigan fits a solid tournament angle that plays on certain teams as favorites if they come in off a blowout loss. EMU showed little interest in their road finale at Toledo on Saturday. Tonight they will be poised to take down a Northern Illinois Team they have 2 close wins over this season. EMU has covered 5 of the last 6 off a conference loss and are 5-0 with 4 spread win when favored this season. In games in the 2nd half vs losing teams they are 6-1 ats. Northern Illinois has lost 10 of 12 vs winning teams and 17 of 19 after scoring 60 or less and have dropped 20 of the last 22 vs teams who allow 64 or less. They shot 30% or less in the first 2 games and will likely fold late when they realize they cannot win. Look for Eastern Michigan to win and cover tonight.
