Western Michigan Broncos
Western Michigan starting things off on the right foot as they covered the -24.5 spread for bettors.
The Broncos throttled Monmouth 48-13 to open the season as they now look to use that tuneup to compete with a few powerhouses coming up in their schedule.
Western Michigan will lean heavily on QB Jon Wassink, who had a nice start to his season. Wassink finished with just 5 incompletions as he tallied 5 touchdowns to go along with his 368 yards. He’ll be asked to do a lot in this one as the Broncos offense will face a much tougher task with this Michigan State defense that let up just 7 points to Tulsa Week 1.
Keep an eye on this Broncos front 4 on the defensive end as well.
Michigan State is one of those classic Big 10 teams that will just wear teams out. Look for the Spartans to try and establish the run game early on here, which the Broncos have to be able to slow down or it could be a long night.
The Broncos are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. Big Ten.
Michigan State Spartans
Michigan State completed what was classic Michigan State win.
The Spartans controlled the tempo and clock throughout as they dominated Tulsa in a 28-7 victory. The Spartans only put up 303 yards of total offense, but they were efficient when getting score chances.
They asserted their dominance on the defensive end where they allowed just 80 total yards.
The Spartans had Tulsa sitting at -73 yards after it was all said and done as it was one of the most dominant performances in team history on that side of the ball.
Look for them to bring that same game-plan in here as they will stack the box and really put the pressure on this Western Michigan backfield.
It is important to note Michigan State’s struggles against the number as well. The Spartans have gone just 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up win. Along with that they are only 1-7 ATS in their last 8 home games overall.
