The Western Michigan Broncos and Miami of Ohio Redhawks face off on Tuesday in a college basketball showdown at Millett Hall. When these two teams faced off on January 22nd it was Miami that won 70-62. At halftime, Western Michigan was leading, but the Redhawks only gave up 29 points in the second half to seal the victory. 

Western Michigan comes into this game with a 4-19 record overall and they have gone 8-11-1 against the spread. This is an offense that has had issues all season and in the last game they lost to Ohio 77-64. The Broncos are averaging 65.1 points while their defense is giving up 77.3 points per game. Lamar Norman Jr has been the top player for Western Michigan averaging 20.2 points while shooting 45.4 percent from the field and 37.3 percent from behind the three point line.

Miami of Ohio is 0-8 against the spread in their last eight games as a favorite. The over is 5-1 in Miami of Ohio’s last six games following a double digit loss at home. The Redhawks are 0-6 against the spread in their last six games against a team with a losing straight up record.

Western Michigan has been awful this year, but I don’t think Miami is 10 points better than them. The Redhawks defense is awful, and Western Michigan will find some success scoring in this game.  It might be a sweat, but Western Michigan is going to find a way to cover the spread. Back Western Michigan getting the points.
