Western Michigan Broncos | MAC (West)

Overview

Conference Analysis
Win Division (+450), Win Conference (+875)
SSA Model Pick: Division (Low Confidence)
Meet the most talented team in the MAC. While the assumption is that Western Michigan fell off because PJ Fleck departed, Lester has kept up the recruiting for the Broncos. If they can avoid an injury plagued season, like the one they had last year, this team should be a contender in the West.

Win Total Analysis
6 wins (-120/+100)
SSA Model Pick: Over (Low Confidence)
The Broncos went 6-6 last year and they should be better this year. With 8 starters back on offense Western Michigan will be in every MAC game this season. 6 or 7 wins is most likely. 6 wins pushes while 7 wins, not a bad situation. The juice on the over is what stops this from being a medium confidence play and your returns are limited by the high likelihood of a push. The odds of you losing this play are quite low.
