Western Michigan Broncos vs Ohio Bobcats prediction

The Ohio Bobcats have been the better, more consistent team this season, and they're the better team at both ends of the floor. I can understand why Ohio is favored. However, Western Michigan beat Ohio in the only meeting this season in January as 4 point underdogs. Also, Western Michigan is 17-13 ATS on the season. Both Western Michigan and Ohio has had six days off so we should get the best from both sides leading to a competitive MAC contest. I'll take the points with Western Michigan.
