Western Michigan comes into Saturday’s game in first place in the MAC West, after a narrow one point victory over Miami (OH) last weekend, and will look to add a little more space between themselves and the rest of the pack with a win.
Eastern Michigan is still looking for their first conference win of the season on Saturday. They lost a heart breaker last time out to Northern Illinois, falling 26-23 to the Huskies.
Eastern Michigan Eagles
With the exception of their victory over Monmouth in week one, it seems that Eastern Michigan likes to live dangerously. Four out of the five games have been decided by a TD or less.
While the Eagles haven’t really been tearing it up offensively this year, they still have an average of 28.4 points a game, but the other side of the ball is where the Eagles strong point seems to lie.
Opposing teams are averaging 24 points per game against Eastern Michigan so far this year, which might be enough for them to take down the high scoring Broncos on the road this weekend.
Western Michigan Broncos
The Broncos have looked like a team to be dealt with so far this football season. Besides their two losses to Power 5 schools (Syracuse, Michigan), this team has been downright dominant on both sides of the ball.
Averaging a pretty good 37.4 points per game this year, Western Michigan will look to try and exploit a lesser opponent in the Eagles on Saturday. A close game will probably tilt in favor of the Broncos.
Once again, with the exception of the two games against Power 5 schools, this team has been great defensively. Opposing teams are scoring an average of 31.6 points per game, though those numbers are a bit skewered by the losses to Syracuse (55 pts) and Michigan (49 pts).
Take those two games out of the equation, and the Broncos are only giving up 28 points per contest in their other three games

Free Week 6 NCAA Football Pick
Western Michigan has a good offense, a good defense, and the spread, although it can hardly be called an advantage. The Broncos look like the clear cut favorite in this one, but that spread is looking awfully dangerous to me at the moment.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Take the UNDER. Free ATS or O/U final score pick provided below!
With the way the Eagles have been hanging in their games until the last minute, you’ve got to ride that trend and take them to cover the spread. Western in good, but the Eagles aren’t that far off.
If you aren’t feeling the spread either, go with the UNDER. The scoring averages don’t look like this game will get to 60+ points, so I would definitely bet against the O/U in this one.
