Purdue Fort Wayne -3½ over Eastern Michigan
Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya, Cancun, Mexico
12:30 PM EST. EMU getting a bit too much credit here because of their two covers in three attempts, which included a narrow loss to #22 Michigan, 88-83, However, that was an anomaly and not the norm. Next game out, EMU would lose to Bradley, 89-61. Bradley and Purdue Fort Wayne are near equals.
Purdue Fort Wayne also played Michigan and lost by 19. On paper, EMU’s near upset over Michigan looks much better than the Mastodons 19-point loss but unfortunately it doesn’t work that way. The Mastodons are 2-2 but have two weak victories and two losses in which they scored 56 points or less in both games. We now get to buy Purdue Fort Wayne at a true discount. Fort Wayne returns a roster that looks eerily similar to last year’s team that were co-champs of the Horizon. They have underperformed thus far and should actually bury this opponent.
Purdue Fort Wayne -3½ -108 (Risking 2.16 units - To Win: 2.00)
