7:00 PM EST. Ohio is 11-11 and coming off three straight losses, but before you think we're selling the Bobcats short, that win total is inflated, as they have benefitted from playing a much weaker non-conference schedule than EMU. Ohio was 8-4 before it started the rigors of conference play and that it is 3-7 in the MAC should tell you all you need to know about the cupcakes the Bobcats ate early in the season. Wins over Wilberforce, Campbell and Detroit Mercy aren’t worth the paper those game tickets were printed on, but they all count the same in the standings.
We've been beating Eastern Michigan's drum all season long and after a run of games where it went just 2-4, we're going to continue to back one of the most undervalued schools in the market. The Eagles are just 10-13 on the season, but before MAC play began, they played one of the toughest non-conference schedules in America (seventh) and took on some of the best teams in the nation (Duke, Kansas, TCU, Buffalo). When you take a deeper dive over at KenPom, you will see that the Eagles are ranked 154 on that sites advance adjusted efficiency rankings, which is far more valuable than any poll. That puts them in the top half of the 353 ranked programs on the site. Meanwhile, the Bobcats are 200th and yet they are favored here. That is not right, as the Eagles are no doubt the superior side. Scoop up the points if you like, but we're going for the outright win.
