The Line: Ohio Bobcats +1 -- Over/Under: 64
The Western Michigan Broncos and the Ohio Bobcats will match up in college football action on Tuesday.
The Broncos sit at 6-4 overall this season. Western Michigan has losses to Michigan State, Syracuse, Toledo and Eastern Michigan but wins over Monmouth, Georgia State, Central Michigan, Miami OH, Bowling Green and Ball State.
In the win over Ball State, Western Michigan QB Jon Wassink has 124 yards passing, with 131 more and a TD rushing. LeVante Bellamy added 157 yards with three scores on the ground, and Giovanni Ricci had a 33-yard catch to lead the receivers.
Over on the Ohio side, they’re 4-5 so far. The Bobcats have wins over Rhode Island, Buffalo, Kent State and Ball State but they’ve fallen to Pitt, Marshall, Louisiana, NIU and Miami-OH.
In the loss to the RedHawks, Ohio QB Nathan Rourke led the rushing with 89 yards and two scores, and passed for 133 and a TD. Isaiah Cox had 35 yards receiving off two catches.
The Broncos are 5-0 ATS in their last five after an ATS loss and 1-4 ATS in their last five in November. WMU is 0-6 ATS in the last six road games and 3-13 ATS in their last 16 after a straight-up win.
Meanwhile, Ohio is 9-4 ATS in the last 13 after a straight-up loss and 37-18 ATS versus a team with a winning record. The Bobcats are 1-5 ATS in their last six conference games and 0-5 ATS in the last five home games.
Since their loss to EMU a couple weeks back, the Broncos have put up two pretty solid offensive performances with 84 combined points scored. That makes at least 35 in three of the last four games for Western Michigan.
Over on the Bobcats’ side, they had a nice scoring run going for a couple of games before falling to Miami, so I’m not completely on that bandwagon right now. I’m going to have to stick with the Broncos here.
