Ball State Cardinals | MAC (West)

Overview

Conference Analysis
Win Division (+2650), Win Conference (+12500)
SSA Model Pick: None
Ball State looked bad last year going 2-10. Mike Neu enters his 3rd season as head coach and has a lot to fix as the Cardinals struggled on both sides of the ball last season. While the Cardinals will be improved they will not be contending for the conference crown.

Win Total Analysis
4 wins (-105/+115)
SSA Model Pick: Over (Low Confidence)
Just like Southpoint, we have the Cardinals winning 4 games this season. But our model sees some upside here as the Cardinals will likely be a dog in 9 games but have a shot to come away with a few wins among those 9 games. Definitely not a high value play, but if you’re looking for action on the Cardinals take the over.
