NCAA betting lines show that Bowling Green finished with the top straight up record in the MAC in 2008 at 8-5.
Here is a look at more NCAA betting lines from the 2008 MAC season and a look ahead to a couple of serious contenders for 2008. Yes, while Temple finished 4-8 straight up they were 8-4 versus the NCAA football betting line number and that was the best in the MAC. The top team in terms of NCAA betting line numbers was actually Temple.
NCAA college football betting lines show that the top over team in 2008 was the Central Michigan Chippewas. They went over the NCAA football betting line in 10 of their 13 games. The other top over teams were Ohio who went 8-3 in terms of NCAA betting lines over/unders and Toledo who was 8-3. The top under team was Northern Illinois as they went under in 9 of their 11 lined games versus the NCAA betting lines. Temple was not far behind as they went under in 9 of their 12 games versus the NCAA betting lines.
Getting back to the top NCAA football betting pointspread teams we see that following Temple was Ohio at 7-4 versus the NCAA betting lines. Central Michigan was 7-4-2 while Bowling Green, Buffalo and Ball State were 7-5. The worst team against the NCAA betting lines in the MAC was Kent State who went a pathetic 2-9 versus the NCAA betting lines in 2008. Western Michigan was also terrible against the NCAA betting lines as they went 2-8-1. Eastern Michigan and Toledo both went 4-7 versus the NCAA betting lines in 2008.
Looking ahead to 2008 a team to watch could be Ball State. They finished 7-6 overall and 5-2 in the conference. They have quarterback Nate Davis who is one of the best in the MAC and wide receiver Dante Love. If Ball State gets any kind of defensive performance they could win the conference and be a big NCAA betting lines success in 2008. Another team that should be exciting is Bowling Green. They have quarterback Tyler Sheehan and will look to put up a lot of points again.
