Point Spread: 1.50 | -109.00 Central Michigan (Home)
Central Michigan not only lost at home to the Broncos last season, they also lost their most recent home meeting with Western Michigan as well. Both defeats came by a double digit margin and now the Chippewas get revenge in an ideal situation. The Broncos are off a last second win that involved a crazy late rally against Toledo last week. That was a big revenge win for Western Michigan and it will be tough for the Broncos to come right back and play a strong game after what will likely go down as one of the most unlikely wins of this entire college football season. Western Michigan scored 13 points with less than a minute to go in the game last week! Central Michigan has been strong on defense as they have held their first two opponents to an average of 294.5 ypg. The Broncos had an easy time with Akron in week one but then allowed over 500 yards of offense to Toledo last week. That doesn't bode well for this week as they now take on a Chippewas team which is averaging 35 points per game this season. Last season after the Chips lost at Western Michigan they won 6 of 7 games to close out the regular season and they have begun this season with a 2-0 mark. As you can see, the Chippewas are surging and playing with confidence and they catch the Broncos off a very emotional win last week. Our computer math model indicates high probability for a home win and Central Michigan is now a home dog here. We'll take it!
