It’s been a tough year for MAC football at the betting window with some odd results and upstart teams. Our results have suffered, but we are on the upswing. A 4-2 week last week and we’re staring down the barrel of a four-game slate this weekend. 4-0? You better believe it, son.

Week 8 Results

Toledo (-10.5) WIN
Bowling Green (-2.5) LOSS
Ohio (-3) WIN
Buffalo (+23) LOSS
Eastern Michigan (+22.5) WIN
Akron (+3.5) WIN

Don’t look now, but that’s a winning weekend, son. It’s been a real bitch of a year at the window, and of course, NIU sticks it to me again. If I could not pick NIU games, I wouldn’t. That’s how little faith I have in my ability now to remain neutral. It’s a good case study of how to walk away from a team that is giving you problems before you start overthinking or overcompensating. Of course, you don’t write a weekly gambling column so you can do that.

The following stats assume a $110 bet for each wager against the spread and a $100 wager for each moneyline bet. Winning initial bets not figured into ledger totals, only losing initial bets and profits. (Example: two bets placed, one win (+$100 profit), one loss (-$110 initial bet) for a weekly ledger of -$10)

Week 8 ATS: 4-2
Season ATS: 23-32
Week 8 Moneyline: 0-0
Season Moneyline: 2-1
Week 8 Ledger: +$180
Season Income: -$960

Only four games means a razor thin margin for error. Some odd lines this week, most notably the Toledo one and the EMU one. Either someone knows something I don’t, or Vegas just missed the mark. Keep in mind they didn’t get those big fancy buildings built by being wrong very often. Standard warning don’t risk what you can’t afford to lose, and as always, always be cashing.
