Ohio Bobcats vs. Bowling Green Falcons

Where: Doyt Perry Stadium, Bowling Green, OH

When: Tuesday, November 19, 7:30 PM. ET.

The Bowling Green Falcons will be trying to bounce back from their loss to Miami (OH) when they take on the Ohio Bobcats on Tuesday night.

Bobcats Trying To Snap Two-Game Losing Streak

The Bobcats are coming off two close losses, which has dropped them to 4-6 with two games left in the season. They will be trying to snap their losing streak and move one game closer to becoming bowl eligible when they face the Falcons on Tuesday.

Ohio has played well offensively, averaging 29.8 points per game. The team has the 31st ranked ground game in the country, averaging 200.5 rushing yards per game. They have also done well in their passing game and are averaging 210.3 passing yards per game.

Nathan Rourke has played well for the Bobcats this season, leading the team with 2,101 yards, 13 touchdowns, and five interceptions. He threw for 225 yards and two touchdowns in their last game, but it wasn’t enough to help the team get the win.

The Bobcats have struggled on the defensive end, giving up 29.8 points per game. They gave up 37 points in their last game and need to do a better job defensively if they want to pick up the win.

Falcons Going For Second Win In Three Games

The Falcons were unable to win consecutive games for the first time this season when they fell to Miami (OH) in their last game. They will be trying to bounce back from the loss and pick up their second win in their last three games when they face the Bobcats on Tuesday.

Bowling Green hasn’t played well offensively, averaging 20.1 points per game. The team has one of the worst passing games in the country, but their ground game has been effective for most of the year, even though it hasn’t helped them win too many games.

The Falcons are rushing for 166.7 yards per game and will need to run the ball effectively to give themselves a chance to beat the Bobcats.

Bryson Denley leads the Falcons with 463 rushing yards and three touchdowns. In their last game, he picked up 105 yards on the ground, but couldn’t get into the end zone.

Bowling Green’s defense is one of the worst in the country, with the team giving up 34.8 points per game. They gave up 43 points in their last game and won’t give themselves a chance to win this game if they don’t defend better than they did in that game.

Insiders Status:

Rating:

This is a case of two struggling teams going at it, but the Bobcats have the advantage here because they have been competitive in their games while the Falcons have been blown out of every game they have played with the exception of their wins. Ohio has one of the best ground games in the country, averaging 200.5 rushing yards per game, and will move the ball on the ground against the Falcons, who are giving up 211.7 rushing yards per game and 23 total rushing touchdowns this season. The Bobcats have also thrown the ball well, averaging 210.3 passing yards per game and should be able to move the ball through the air against the Falcons, who are giving up 229.4 passing yards per game and 21 total touchdowns, while having only seven interceptions. The fact that the Falcons are giving up 34.8 points per game while averaging only 20.1 points per game, makes the Bobcats the best bet here.

Prediction: Ohio Bobcats -18.5

Full-Game Total Pick

Insiders Status:

Rating:

The Bobcats are averaging 29.8 points per game and should come close to scoring 40 points against a defense that is giving up 34.8 points per game. The Falcons are averaging 20.1 points per game but will go over their season average against the Bobcats, who are giving up 29.7 points per game, which will be enough to push the score over the total. Rouke should have a big game for Ohio.

Prediction: Over 57

Half-Time Side Pick

Insiders Status:

Rating:

The Falcons will cover the first half spread in this game because they have outplayed the Bobcats, who have gotten off to slow starts, in the first half of their last three games, averaging nine points per game, while the Bobcats average 6.7 points per game.

Prediction: Bowling Green Falcons

Half-Time Total Bet

Rating:

The Bobcats and Falcons are averaging 15.7 combined points per game in the first half of their last three games and will fall short of the first half total in this game if they maintain their current scoring pace.
