What bettors need to know: Ball State at Northern Illinois
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ball State at Northern Illinois (-18.5), 8 p.m. ET, ESPNU

Two first-year MAC coaches getting the most out of their teams collide Tuesday, when Northern Illinois hosts Ball State in chilly DeKalb, Ill.

Dave Doeren, a former Wisconsin defensive coordinator, has the Huskies (7-3 SU, 5-5 ATS) in position to defend their MAC West Crown. Northern Illinois is ninth in the nation in both rushing offense (250.4 yards ppg.) and scoring offense (41.6 points).

Pete Lembo’s Cardinals (6-4 SU, 6-4 ATS) have equaled their win total for the last two years combined, despite being ranked 118th in total defense.

The seven weekday MAC games in November have averaged 76.28 points with five of the seven eclipsing the total.

THE LINE

The Huskies opened as 17-point favorites Sunday at the Las Vegas Wynn. But early money came in on Northern Illinois, pushing the line up to -18.5 by Monday morning. The Huskies have covered seven of their last eight home games as a favorite.

RECENT HISTORY

The Huskies went on the road and blasted Ball State 59-21 as 15.5-point favorites last season, with quarterback Chandler Harnish passing for 247 yards and two touchdowns.

Northern Illinois has won five straight overall, including last Tuesday’s 45-14 pummeling of Bowling Green. The Huskies have covered the spread in four of their last five.

Ball State also is surging down the stretch, having won three of four, including a 33-31 win at improving Eastern Michigan on Nov. 5. The Cardinals have covered the spread in four straight games.

INJURY REPORT

Northern Illinois will be without starting freshman linebacker Jamaal Bass (suspension). Freshman Michael Santacaterina started in place of Bass last week and played well.

Ball State is not reporting any recent significant injuries.

WEATHER

Temperatures are expected to dip into the 30s around kickoff with a calming 12 mph NW wind.

TRENDS

Cardinals are 23-8 ATS as road underdogs and 30-11 ATS in last 41 road games overall.

Most of Huskies’ ATS success has come against weaker competition. Northern Illinois is 5-11 ATS versus a team with a winning record.

The over is 10-3 in Ball State’s last 13 conference games and 6-1 in Northern Illinois last seven games in November.

Instant replay: NCAAF and NFL betting recap

Each week, we’ll recap all the betting information you need to know from the college and pro football action that went down over the weekend.

NCAAF betting recap

It was a solid week for underdog bettors with the pups going 29-27 against the spread, with 15 underdogs winning outright.

Oregon was one of those underdogs and pulled off the biggest win of the weekend, pounding then No. 2 Stanford 53-30 as a 2.5-point pup on the road. The win moved the Ducks up three spots to No. 4 in the BCS standings. Stanford dropped all the way to No. 9 with the loss.

TCU did its part to shake up the BCS landscape as well, downing Boise State 36-35 as a huge 17-point underdog. That loss bumped the Broncos down to No. 10 in the BCS standings.

In the bad beat department, Memphis had a pair of 18-point leads over UAB and still couldn’t close out the deal. UAB put 24 points on the fourth quarter to slip by the Tigers 41-35 as a 5.5-point underdog.

The under finished 31-26 for the week.


NFL betting recap

From Tim Tebow’s two-completion victory over Kansas City to a couple of big meltdowns by a couple of high-profile teams, it was an interesting week in the NFL.

Underdogs were 8-7 against the spread ahead of Monday night’s Vikings-Packers contest and all eight of those pups won outright – seven of which came on the road.

Philadelphia was stunned 21-17 by the visiting Arizona Cardinals, who cashed in as fat 13.5-point favorites and Seattle shocked the Baltimore Ravens 22-17 as a 7-point underdog.

It looked as though under bettors would get through Sunday with a tidy profit before Sunday’s last four games on the schedule all played over their totals. The under was 8-7 in Week 10 heading into the Monday Nighter.

After the over dominated early this season, things are back to normal now. The over is 73-71 to date.

OSU did go on a 66/19pl drive for the apparent game winning drive and got a TD with :55 left but their xp was blk'd and PU won in OT after converting on 3&12 with a FD pass to the 1 and getting a TD on the next play...

Everyone says Texas Tech is an up-and-down team since they upset Oklahoma. That was really their only good game of the year. They had another poor performance last week when in their home finale, facing an OSU team whose D had been giving up a ton of points, were flat out dominated. Oklahoma State had a 332-151 yd edge at the half and led 49-0. TT scored their only TD on a FR TD and OSU finished with a 637-270 yd edge...

Joe Paterno started as an assistant at Penn State in 1950, took over as the HC in 1966 but after an incredible week where all the news in college football was focused on Happy Valley, he was fired. It was the first game he was not in charge of in a very very long time. Still, PSU finished with a 375-311 yd edge. PSU had a 176-167 yd edge at the half but actually trailed 10-0 and came up three pts short to Nebraska (14-17)...

USC lost to Washington on last second FG's in each of the last 2 years but this one was not close. USC had a 246-91 yd edge at the half and led 23-3 and after 3Q's it was 37-10 with a 401-148 yd edge. UW took over with 3:07 left and went 69/10pl and on 4&4 got a garbage 20 yd TD pass to "only" lose 40-17...

Virginia actually snapped a three-game losing streak to Duke. The game was tied at 14 and 21 when UVA got a TD with 6:52 left in the 3Q and a 29 yd FG and led 31-21 after 3Q's. Duke missed a 35 yd FG with 5:50 left and was SOD at the UVA42 with 3:33 left and UVA got 1 FD and ran out the clock only finishing with a 356-337 yd edge...

Boise State appeared to have the TCU game locked up as they led 35-28 and had the ball on 2&6 at the TCU35 in range for the game clinching FG and only 2:26 remained when they fumbled. TCU got a TD with 1:05 left and went for 2 and got it. BSU still went on a 9pl drive and were in the middle of the field for a 39 yd FG but it trailed off to the right and BSU's perfect season came to a halt, also ending BSU's streaks of 10 straight overall wins, 35 overall home wins, 47 straight conference wins, a 65 reg season home wins...

Northwestern had a 533-254 yd edge vs Rice getting a 90 yd TD pass in the 1H then 2 TD's in the final 4:26. Rice took over with 6:07 left trailing 28-0 and went 62/5pl getting a TD with 4:16 left but NU got 2 FD's to the Rice 11 running out the clock. Jeremy Ebert had 7 catches for 208 yards...

Miami, Fl. finished with a 383-259 yd edge vs Florida State and a 24-13 FD edge. FSU did not get its first FD until midway throughout the 2Q but benefitted from three 1H Miami TO's. FSU got a 37 yd FG on a 9 yd drive and later got an 83 yd PR TD and led 17-7 at the half despite being outgained 203-79. UM got a TD with 1:27 left in the game but missed the xp, 23-19 and FSU rec'd the onside kick. It was the first time in 6 years the home team had won and the first time in 7 years there was not an outright upset...

Texas A&M blew 2 double-digit leads. One in each half and it was the 4th game this year lost in which they had a DD lead. Collin Klein threw for a career high 281 yds passing in a 4OT shoot out. A&M had leads of 14-0 in the 2Q and 31-21 with 6:38 left. A&M did finish with a 482-411 yd edge but settled for a 20 yd FG in the 4OT and Kansas State got a 1 yd TD run for the 53-50 win.

CONTROLLING THEIR OWN DESTINY

Wisconsin now controls their own destiny in the Big Ten as they outgained Minnesota 461-156 with UM getting a 96 yd KR for a TD in the 3Q. UW got ahead of the spread with a TD with 9:07 left in the game after UM had been SOD on 4&1 at the 50. UM also scored on a fake FG for a TD but were outFD'd 29-9. UM QB MarQueis Gray had a bad back and his girlfriend had just given birth to twin boys on Friday and he hit 6-14-51...

Michigan State controls its destiny in the Big Ten and just needs to win in their final 2 games. MSU had a 19 yd drive after an int then after a 20 yd PR, drove 35 yds for a TD with 1:57 left in the half then Iowa fumbled the KO and MSU got a TD 2pl later for their commanding 31-7 HT lead. They did have a 269-153 yd edges at the half while Iowa finished with a 20-19 FD edge for the game...

Georgia just keeps getting better each and every week. Versus Auburn they had 30-10 FD and 528-195 yd edges. They now just need to beat Kentucky to find themselves in the SEC Championship game. Isaiah Crowell and Carlton Thomas (both susp'd LW) each topped 100 yards rushing and UGA led 35-7 at the half with a 328-89 yd edge...

It seemed a bowl was almost impossible for Navy but they've now pulled 2 straight upsets and only need to beat SJS and Army where they will be favored in each to get back to bowl eligibility at 6 wins. Navy has won 5 straight vs SMU. SMU finished with a 386-335 yd edge. SMU's last 2 drives of the 1H went 74/13pl but on 3&gl from the 6 they were int'd in the EZ then went 79/14pl for a 28 yd FG, 10-3. SMU was SOD at the Navy 21 late 3Q and trailed 24-10 when they got a TD with 3:40 left but Navy converted on 3&7 and 3&4 for FD's to run the clock...

Clemson finds itself in the ACC Title game after they overcame a 28-14 deficit vs Wake Forest and kicked a 43 yd FG on the final play for the win. CU finished with a 522-317 yd edge and led 14-7 when WF got a 50 yd PR TD and then after a fmbl a 25 yd drive for a TD and after an int, drove 44/4pl for a TD.

FRONTDOOR COVERS

Memphis led UAB 35-17 after 3Q's. UAB settled for a 24 yd FG, drove 70/9pl and 69/4pl for TD's but the 2 pt conversion failed with 7:08 left and they still trailed by 2. UAB went 77/10pl and got a TD with 1:36 left, not only for the win, but for the frontdoor cover. MEM got to the UAB43 after a personal foul but on 4&10 fired incomplete. UAB did finish with a 601-384 yd edge...

Army got a TD with 14:02 left in the game but missed the xp and trailed Rutgers 13-12. Army was punting with 6:36 left and RU blk'd the punt and ret'd it 32 yds for a TD to make it 20-12. Army was SOD at the RU41 with 2:21 left. On 3&7 after Army had used 2 time-outs, so one FD would have ended the game, Jamison broke through a hole and raced 56 yds for a TD to give RU the frontdoor cover. Army was SOD at their own 26 and RU finished with a 314-305 yd edge, thanks to that 56 yd run.

WINDY GAMES

North Carolina State CB David Amerson extended his school record with his 10th int in the 1H and NCSt had a 267-190 yd edge. Boston College had a 92-88 yd edge at the half and led 14-3 on a very wind day where the winds affected FG's and punts...

The winds gusted up to 60 mph for the Wyoming-Air Force game but surprisingly WY (more of a passing team) pulled out the win. Brett Smith hit 17-30-139. AF hit just 2-5-(-1) but don't normally pass anyway. The goal posts were teetering, tents in the parking lot were toppled and the fighter jet fly over was scrubbed. WY delivered their 3rd outright upset as a Big Dog Play for us this year and a 12 yd punt with 3:22 left in the half set up them for a 42/7pl TD drive and the lead, 12-7. They did trail 17-12 but got a TD with 7:40 left and AF fmbl'd at the WY24 and then fmbl'd and it was ret'd 48 yds for a TD with :25 left to make an 18-17 game a 25-17 final. WY finished with a 351-311 yd edge...

Colorado and Arizona was played in 45 mph winds which gusted up to 71 mph in the 4Q. Nick Foles still hit 35-53-352 yds but UA trailed by 24 points in the 3Q and CU had 273-60 yd edge.

BIG DOG NEAR MISSES

Kansas led Baylor 24-3 in the 4Q. The cover was never in question but KU appeared on its way to a huge outright upset. BU got a TD with 11:45 left to pull within 24-10, a 36 yd TD with 7:58 left to make it 24-17 and then a 67 yd TD pass with 3:32 left to tie it. KU was nearly in FG range when on 2&10 from the BU39 they were int'd at the 25. In OT each team got a TD but smartly KU went for 2 but unfortunately did not get the 2 pt conversion...

San Jose State had a 30-21 lead and had the ball at the Utah State 7 when they settled for a 24 yd FG with 8:13 left which kept Utah St within 12. USt got a TD on 3&14 with 5:14 left and then a 21 yd TD pass with :41 left to escape with a 1 pt win. SJS did attempt a 67 yd FG on the final play but it was blk'd...

Colorado State lost QB Pete Thomas in the 2Q. He had taken every snap at QB this year and Garrett Grayson hit 6-15-26 yds in his place. Still, San Diego State took the lead 18-15 with 5:49 left and CSU's final drive did get to midfield where they were SOD.

INJURIES OF NOTE

There could be bad news for Cincinnati who had the Big East in their control. QB Zach Collaros was on the sideline on crutches after being inj'd in the 2Q vs West Virginia. That injury changed the entire BE race. Bkp QB Legaux hit 10-21-144. Even with the bkp QB, UC which wore all red uniforms for the first time since 1993, had a shot at the win. They led 21-17 but gave up a 4Q TD and then UC had a FD at the WV22. On 3&3, Legaux ran for 1 yd and they went for the 31 yd FG for OT but it was blk'd...

Texas had 2 RB's come into the game questionable but neither Malcolm Brown or Joe Bergeron played vs Missouri. Foswhitt Whittaker left with an ankle inj in the 1Q. UT was held without a TD for the first time since 2004 and lost to Missouri for the first time since 1997. UT went 77/12pl for a 27 yd FG and got into MO terr on their next drive but their offense slowed down and MO did enough for a 17-5 win finishing with a 338-247 yd edge.

TGS WEDNESDAY NIGHT MAC UPDATE...WESTERN MICHIGAN at MIAMI-OHIO!

Just like a year ago, Miami-Ohio is playing its best football in the second half of the season. The RedHawks have five covers in their last six outings, although they're kicking themselves for gifting last Wednesday's game to Temple, when three Miami turnovers led directly to 17 Owls points in a bitter 24-21 loss at Philadelphia. Now the RedHawks are in must-win mode to keep their MAC East and bowl hopes alive. Thanks to the leadership of QB Zac Dysert, Miami has overcome its inability to run the ball (only 77 ppg, last in the nation) to nonetheless score 32.3 ppg over its last three games. And expect the RedHawks to do more damage vs. a leaky WMU "D" that allowed Toledo to score 66 points and gain 804 yards in the Broncos' last outing. Those recurring shortcomings on defense have somewhat nullified prolific WMU QB Alex Carder, who passed for 584 yards and 7 TDs last week at the Glass Bowl...and still lost the game. With the Broncos on a 4-game spread losing streak, we suggest Miami at this short price, but might even prefer the "over" a bit more considering WMU's penchant for getting involved in shootouts.

TGS Score Forecast: "OVER" MIAMI-O 38 - Wmu 31





TGS WEDNESDAY NIGHT MAC UPDATE II...OHIO at BOWLING GREEN!

Wednesday could be a good night for Frank Solich's Ohio Bobcats, who can wrap up the MAC East crown with a win at Bowling Green and a Miami loss to WMU. Expect the Bobcats to have a good chance to uphold their end of the bargain tonight, especially if QB Tyler Tettleton (2455 YP and 22 TDP) continues in his recent form. The emergence of Tettleton as a big-time QB has given Solich the sort of weapon he has never had at Athens, while the complement provided by a typically physical Bobcat infantry assault (203 ypg) speaks to the Bobcats' uncommon offensive balance. The availabily of RB Donte Harden (6.2 ypc) at full strength after flu symptoms last week at CMU further bolster's Solich arsenal. Meanwhile, Bowling Green seems to be headed in the opposite direction, its offense having bogged down since piling up 521 ypg in its first three games; the Falcs have produced only 335 ypg their last seven, and haven't scored more than 21 points in a game since September. And while frosh RB Anthon Samuel has been a revelation, opposing defenses are still teeing off on QB Matt Schilz, who was under constant pressure last week in a 45-14 loss to NIU. Solich's Ohio and the "under" are the preferred recommendations tonight at Doyt-Perry Stadium.

TGS Score Forecast: "UNDER" OHIO 31 - Bgsu 17

TGS COLLEGE FOOTBALL UPDATE...LOOKING FOR AN ANGLE?


North Carolina at VIRGINIA TECH (Thursday)...UNC led 10-9 at halftime, but gave up 17 unanswered points in 3rd Q of eventual 26-10 setback in Chapel Hill LY. Doubt VT has forgotten how Tar Heels pulled off stunning 20-17 upset in Blacksburg on national TV in 2009.

Marshall at MEMPHIS (Thursday)...UM has drawn no inspiration from playing in Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium, going just 3-11 vs. spread vs. FBS foes since 2009 (0-3 TY). Marshall needs to win final two games to become bowl eligible.

Arizona at ARIZONA STATE...Underdog 6-1 last 7 in this heated instate rivalry. Nightmare game for U of A LY, as Wildcats had a PAT blocked after a late TD, forcing OT; then had tying PAT blocked in second OT, giving ASU a 30-29 win. Nine of last 11 in series have gone "under."

Southern Miss at UAB...Double-revenge game for USM, which has suffered back-to-back upsets vs. UAB after winning previous 9 meetings. Golden Eagles outgained Blazers 582-464, but committed 4 TOs in wild 50-49 double-OT loss in Hattiesburg LY.

Akron at BUFFALO...UB looking for some revenge after its 3-game series win streak was snapped in LY's 22-14 loss at Akron, which was Zips only victory of season.

Louisville at CONNECTICUT...Year ago, UConn was forced to go with unproven backup QB RS frosh Michael Box due to suspension of then-starter Cody Endres in 26-0 whitewash at Louisville. Home team has covered 5 of last 7 in series.

Georgia Tech at DUKE...GT had won and covered 5 straight in series until narrowly missing in LY's 30-20 home victory as a 101/2-pt. favorite. Duke led 13-6 at half before GT cranked up the flexbone by scoring 17 unanswered points in 3rd Q in 10-pt. victory.

Virginia at FLORIDA STATE...UVA's first trip to Tallahassee since 2006, but Cavs have been outscored 86-3 in first H of previous 4 visits! FSU dominated "pits" in LY's 34-14 romp in Charlottesville, outrushing UVA 256-24.

Indiana at MICHIGAN STATE...First meeting since 2008, but MSU has covered 6 of previous 7 meetings from 2002-08.

Lsu at OLE MISS...Ole Miss is surprisingly 8-1 vs. spread last 9 as an underdog in series, including LY's 43-36 loss in Baton Rouge. Rebels led 37-36 before LSU scored game winner on a 7-yd. TD run with just :44 to go!

Vanderbilt at TENNESSEE...Vandy revved to capture 2nd series win in last 28 meetings. Last 5 in series have gone "under."

Kansas State at TEXAS...KSU has pulled off 3 straight upsets vs. UT, including 39-14 victory in Manhattan LY. Wildcats' crafty HC Bill Snyder unexpectedly gave QB Collin Klein his first collegiate start vs. Horns, and he passed with flying colors, rushing for game-high 127 yds. & 2 TDs.

Colorado at UCLA...UCLA HC Rick Neuheisel was CU head honcho from 1995-98, while Buffs new HC John Embree served as Bruin assistant for 2 seasons (2003-04). Horrible-traveling CU (23 straight losses outside home state) 0-9 as away dog L2Ys.

Texas Tech at MISSOURI...Payback-minded Mizzou claimed it was emotionally spent following back-to-back games vs. Oklahoma and Nebraska in LY's 24-17 upset loss in Lubbock. Tigers have 31 Texans on squad, including QB James Franklin & 1000-yd. rusher Henry Josey.

Clemson at NORTH CAROLINA STATE...Visitor is 10-1 vs. spread last 11 in series.

Western Kentucky at NORTH TEXAS...WKU sky high to end 4-game series losing streak, especially recalling 33-6 home thumping LY. Toppers still peeved that Mean Green's star RB Dunbar scored on 10-yd. run rather than UNT taking knee with :38 left.

Minnesota at NORTHWESTERN...There is no place like the road in this series, with visitor going 12-2 vs. spread last 14. Five of last 7 in series have gone "over."

Penn State at OHIO STATE...Scandal-plagued Penn State in rare double-revenge mode vs. Ohio State. In LY's 38-14 defeat at "The Shoe," Nittany Lions led 14-3 at half, but QB Matthew McGloin threw two int. returns for TDs in second-half of 24-pt. loss.

Tulane at RICE...Rice bitterly recalls how Tulane scored winning TD on 73-yd. pass play with 1:46 on clock in LY's 54-49 loss in Superdome.

Cincinnati at RUTGERS...RU defense out to make amends following 69-38 road defeat LY (most pts. allowed by Knights since 80-7 debacle at WV in 2000). RU bitterly recalls how Cincy's starting QB Zach Collaros threw 4-yd. TD pass with 5:17 to play.

Maryland at WAKE FOREST...Bowl-seeking WF (one more win) has circled this one following 62-14 blowout at College Park LY. After trailing just 10-7 in 2nd-Q, Deacons allowed 45 unanswered points, aided by 2 blocked punts and 2 int. returns for TDs.

New Mexico at WYOMING...Revenge-minded Wyo outgained Lobos 536-430 LY, but had 4 TOs (none for NM) in 34-31 setback in Albuquerque, which is one of only three NM wins since 2009. Lobos booted game-winning 38-yd. FG as time expired.
