James Madison vs North Dakota State 12/17/21 Betting Prediction
James Madison are also 12-1 and also with a great offense. I would consider their defense a bit better than North Dakota’s as it rarely allows over 20 points. James Madison relies a lot on the passing game. QB Cole Johnson leads the team with 67.5% completed passes for 3569 passing yards, 39 TDs and 2 INTs.
North Dakota State showed all season that if not the best, they are at least the second-best team in the league. With Sam Houston out of the equation now, they become the favorites to win it all. Their only loss came against South Dakota State in a game where they could not get anything going on offense. Apart from that game, however, the Bison’s offense was amazing, scoring over 27 points most of the time.
James Madison’s only loss came against Villanova by just a point. The funny thing was that the Dukes did not commit any turnovers in that game. As a whole, James Madison is a team that does not make mistakes very often and usually benefit from the opposition team’s mistakes. This loss was more the exception than the rule for James Madison. 4.5 points is a big spread for such a rivalry game and can easily be covered by a team with a good defense that does not make any mistakes. North Dakota has its weapons but usually commit more turnovers than James Madison and this can cost them the game.
