Western Michigan has an 7-6 league record and sits a couple of games behind Ball State. A win here and a strong close could earn them second place.
Ball State has a nice overall record and a great shot at 20 wins. When you reach that mark your chances of playing in the postseason are really good.
Western Michigan Broncos
The Broncos are coming off an early week OT win over Central Michigan at home. It was a game they should have won more easily so there could be a hangover here.
Thomas Wilder is a classic mid major small guard. He has an unlimited green light which sometimes makes it hard for him to also be a playmaker. Still they need his points – they are about 25% of the offense.
After Wilder they have balance with 4 players scoring between 9 and 11ppg. None really stand out and they are kind of interchangeable. Just probing for the hot hand.
Western Michigan does split the game between a couple of centers that have legit size but not much else. Those two play physical and that’s about it.
Ball State Cardinals
The Cardinals do have a really nice record and have won five in a row but this is not a really good team. Nothing stands out about them.
Trey Moses is a legit big inside and he is going to be able to just push away the Broncos up front. He had 9 and 9 when the first met – a 15 point loss.
The Cardinals only scored 58 points in that game and the only regular in double figures was leading scorer Tayler Persons. They are going to need more offense.
Ishmael El-Amin was the only other Cardinal with more than 10 points, but his 11, in that contest was one of only three times all season he has cracked double figures. They need other to step forward.

Free Western Michigan Broncos vs. Ball State Cardinals NCAAB Prediction:
Given what happened in the first game the spread will probably be small in favour of the home team.
This game between a couple of mid majors as we play out February is unlikely to generate a lot of interest from the betting public. .
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Ball State -5.5
A relatively close game will get salted away by the home team that is on a roll. Not a lot to tell.
