MAC Championship Betting Trends

- Northern Illinois has gone 6-6-0 against the spread this season.

- Hitting the over just three times in 12 games, only two FBS teams have hit fewer overs than NIU this season. 

- Having covered the spread in 75 percent of their games this season (9-3-0 ATS), Buffalo boasts the third-best record against the spread of any college football team in the country. 

- Contrary to NIU's struggles against hitting the over, Buffalo also owns the fourth-best record for hitting overs this season (8-4-0).

MAC Championship Best Prop Bets

- First Half Point Spread: Buffalo (-2.5) Points (-110) – Buffalo is a great first-half team when it comes to scoring. The Bulls average 35.3 points per game and 20.2 of those 35.3 PPG come in the first half. And that number is trending in the right direction with Buffalo averaging 26 first half points per game in its last three games. Meanwhile, NIU averages an abysmal nine PPG in the first half.

- Away Team (NIU) Total: Under 23.5 Points (-110) – The Huskies offense has been wildly inconsistent this season. Over its last five games, NIU has scored seven or fewer points twice and 36 or more points just twice. However, one thing that shouldn't go unnoticed is the fact that the Huskies have scored exactly 24 points three times this season.
