Miami (OH) RedHawks vs Western Michigan Broncos prediction

I'm not running to the window to back Western Michigan, but the Broncos are at home where they've played their best ball, and they beat Miami of Ohio last month as 5 point underdogs. The Miami (OH) RedHawks have been hit or miss all year, and their offense has been sluggish over the last few weeks. This is a winnable game for Western Michigan, and it already beat the RedHawks on the road this season. Give me the free bucket.
