We have reached week four of the College football season and a lot of teams are getting into conference play, if they haven’t already been playing in conference play before.
But some of the teams are still playing non conference and that is the case in Bowling Green. The Ball State Cardinals make the trip to take on the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers.
This is the first meeting between the two teams since 2008 when the Cardinals won by a final score of 24-7.
Ball State Cardinals
The Ball State Cardinals could easily be coming into this game with a 3-0 record if it wasn’t for a late drive the Fighting Illini in week one that made them lose by three points.
Since that point they have won two games, and both of them were very convincing. They beat the University of Alabama-Birmingham, winning by the final score of 51-31.
That was a big game for them because it showed just how well the offense could play if everything went right, and that might need to be the case to win this game.
On the defensive side of the ball the Cardinals have had issues at times. When you are playing Western Kentucky though that is not something that can happen.
The secondary is going to have to really step up in this game, and the depth is going to need to be key as the Hilltoppers take a lot of snaps every game.
Western Kentucky Hilltoppers
After winning the first game of the season, the Western Kentucky HIlltoppers come into this game having lost their last two games.
The offense just hasn’t been what it used to be, but they showed in week one that it can still be explosive, the Hilltoppers just need to find a way to get back to the week one success.
In their last game they played Louisiana Tech and they had chances at the end of the game to score, but it wasn’t enough as they ended up losing by one point, 23-22.
To win this game it’s pretty simple, the offense needs to find the rhythm that they haven’t had the last two games. If they can find that offense they will win this game, but if they can’t they could be on the wrong end of a big upset by the Cardinals.

I think Western Kentucky will find the rhythm the offense is looking for and that will lead them to a lot of success in this one.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Ball State +9.5
Although that offense will be enough to win the game, I don’t think it will be enough to cover the spread. I think the Hilltoppers win, but the Cardinals find a way to cover the spread.
