The teams split a pair in Ohio back on the first weekend in November before Bowling Green had their act together.  The spread of probabilities in the above table feels right to me.  It would make sense for BG to come out well ahead this weekend, but then they’ve played .530 hockey in league play this year.  The Falcons are better on the road this season.  I’d take a split, but I know that no one wearing orange wants that.
