Wednesday MACtion Sharp Report

niu

 

The return of early week MACtion saw dogs go 3-0 ATS on Tuesday. Many bettors have a love-hate relationship with MACtion, due of course to the super high volatility that this conference routinely features year in and year out. Speaking of volatility, dogs are now 19-8 ATS (70.4%) in MACtion conference play this season. Road MACtion dogs are a blistering 11-2 ATS. 

Now it's on to Wednesday, where bettors have a loaded slate to choose from including 11 NBA games, 4 NHL games and a pair of college football games. For an updated breakdown of Tuesday's betting action, be sure to tune in to the VSiN Market Insights Podcast with Josh Appelbaum. It will be posted by 1 p.m. ET. I'll also be co-hosting Betting Across America with Mike Pritchard from 3 to 4 p.m. ET.

 

In the meantime, let's discuss where the action is flowing tonight's college gridiron slate...

 

7 p.m. ET: Northern Illinois at Kent State

Both of these MAC rivals are riding hot streaks. Northern Illinois (6-2 SU, 5-2-1 ATS) has won five straight games, most recently beating Central Michigan 39-38 as 6-point road dogs. Meanwhile, Kent State (4-4 SU, 3-5 ATS) has won three of their last four games, including a 34-27 win over Ohio last week, covering as 5-point road favorites. This line opened with Kent State listed as a 5-point home favorite. Respected money has come down on the dog, dropping Northern Illinois from  5 to  3.5. Short road dogs  4 or less are roughly 54% ATS the past decade. We could also be looking at a high scoring game in this one. The total opened at 67 and has been bet up to 68. The weather forecast calls for low 40s, clear skies and little to no wind. 

 

7 p.m. ET: Central Michigan at Western Michigan

The second MACtion matchup features two teams looking to rebound from tough losses. Central Michigan (4-4 SU, 3-5 ATS) just fell to Northern Illinois 39-38, losing outright as 6-point home favorites. On the other hand, Western Michigan (5-3 SU, 4-3-1 ATS) just got rolled by Toledo 34-15, losing outright as 1.5-point road favorites. This line opened with Western Michigan listed as a 10-point home favorite. This line has remained frozen off the opener but at times has briefly dipped to 9.5. This signals some slight liability on Central Michigan plus the points. Respected money has also hit this over, driving the total up from 63 to 66.5. Both of these teams are averaging roughly 29 PPG on offense and giving up roughly 28 PPG on defense.
