Tuesday Cardinals vs. Broncos Week 14 Gambling


Coming off its toughest game, the unbeaten Ball State Cardinals will try to overcome one last obstacle to winning the MAC West when it hosts the Western Michigan Broncos tonight.

Sportsbook.com has Ball State as 10 ½-point favorites with a Total of 53.5. It will be broadcast on ESPN2 starting at 7 pm ET.

The BCS #15 Cardinals, one of five undefeated FBS teams, clinched a share of the West division with a 31-24 victory at Central Michigan on Wednesday for the school’s first 11-0 start.

Nate Davis threw for 175 yards and four touchdowns, including the go-ahead score midway through the fourth quarter, and MiQuale Lewis had a season-high 177 rushing yards as Ball State improved to 7-0 in the MAC.

Although Ball State (7-2-1 ATS) was ranked 17th in the BCS standings, representatives from the Fiesta Bowl were in attendance last week, along with those from the Motor City and International Bowls – two games that have tie-ins to MAC schools. The Cardinals can win the West outright with a victory over Western Michigan (9-2, 5-5 ATS) and play Buffalo in the MAC title game in Detroit on Dec. 5th.

“Our goal has been to win the championship since we came here in 2003, so when we meet at the beginning of the year, we talk about our expectations and what investment we’re going to make as a team,” Ball State coach Brady Hoke said. The Cardinals are a rock solid 22-10 ATSthe last three seasons.

Lewis has topped 100 yards in three straight games and has a single-season school record nine overall, totaling 1,450 yards and 17 touchdowns. Davis has thrown nine TD passes in his last three games after totaling eight in his previous seven. He threw for 358 yards and two TDs to rally the Cardinals past Western Michigan 27-23 on the road last October 20th.

 Tuesday Night FootballThe defense has been steady the last couple of weeks, giving up yardage, just not a lot of points. After coming off a couple of games not forcing many turnovers, Ball State normally bring a little extra and is 6-0 ATS after two consecutive games where they forced one or less turnovers, winning by an average of 16 points per game.

The Broncos still have an outside chance to win the West, but need Central Michigan to lose at Eastern Michigan in addition to beating Ball State. They can also win the division if several tiebreakers go their way if a victory by Central Michigan creates a three-way tie.

Western Michigan was idle last week after beating Toledo 27-17 on Nov. 15th, its third straight win, behind three scoring passes from Tim Hiller.

Hiller has recorded five straight 300-yard games, and leads the MAC with 3,382 yards and 33 touchdowns with just six interceptions in 448 attempts. The junior, who redshirted due to injury in 2006 when Western Michigan last beat Ball State, was intercepted three times by the Cardinals last year.

The spread seems a little low when looking at comparative opponents. The Cardinals are 4-0 and 3-1 ATS against common foes, winning by 22.8 points per game. Western Michigan is 3-1, but only 1-3 ATS, with a score differential of six points.

WMU is only 2-5 against the spread the last seven years versus Ball State, nonetheless have been good closers at 9-6-1 SU and 12-4 ATS record in season finales.
