Hello and welcome (back) to the 2021 MAC Pick ‘Em!
I thought Week 5 was bad for this group, but somehow Week 6 was worse. Five entrants in the pool last week came away with negative points which is probably the first time something like that has ever happened in here. Way to go, us!
WEEK 6 RESULTS & LEADERBOARD
The game everybody got right last week was CMU over Ohio at home. It was closer than probably a lot of us expected it to be, but a win for CMU’s a win for all. WMU over Ball State was the second-most popular selection, but the upset meant that only one person in the pool correctly picked the Cardinals to win.
Three people (myself included) picked NIU to win at Toledo, and three people (raises hand again) picked Akron to win at BGSU.
Karp came away with last week’s points leader, and is tied for the pool lead with Kaleb Carter at 545 points each.

PICK ALL OF THE MAC TEAMS THAT WILL WIN THEIR GAMES
This week I feel more confident in my picks than I did while doing this same thing last week, which might be a problem.
- Buffalo (vs. Ohio)
- CMU (vs. Toledo)
- EMU (vs. Ball State)
- Miami (vs. Akron)
- NIU (vs. BGSU)
- WMU (vs. Kent State)
DOUBLE OR TRIPLE?
The three games I feel most confident in getting my picks right are:
- BGSU @ NIU
- Kent State @ WMU
- Ohio @ Buffalo
I mean. Duh?
Honestly, it’s MACtion so I could see a lot of these matchups going sideways. I’m sticking with Kent State at WMU as my basic pick for what could be a very pointsy game, but I wouldn’t be surprised if other MAC games in the state might do more work on the scoreboards. EMU and Ball State both have potential to score. CMU and Toledo could get nasty. What about Ohio-Buffalo or BG-NIU?
- Kent State @ WMU
COMBINED OVER/UNDER: 52.5 TOTAL PTS SCORED BY KENT STATE + BGSU
The last two times we did this game, I picked the over and got them right. This time, I’m taking the under for two road dogs.
