The Western Michigan Broncos (4-7, 3-4 MAC) host the Bowling Green Falcons (6-5, 4-3 MAC) on Tuesday night in a MAC showdown. BGSU fell 32-31 to Toledo last week, snapping a four-game winning streak. WMU were shut out by Northern Illinois, 24-0, but they’ll be back home on Tuesday, where they’re 3-1.
Will the Falcons improve to 4-3 away from home, or will the Broncos notch home win #4?

Both schools are coming off of tough losses, but we should expect a hard-fought battle here, and oddsmakers are anticipating the same thing. The Falcons aren’t the best offensive team efficiency-wise, but their defense has remained solid all year long, even though that didn’t show last week.
Western Michigan have not fared well defensively, particularly against the pass, where opposing QBs boast an average rating of 141.6 versus the Broncos. As a result, seven of their 11 games have gone over, which is the same exact rate as the Falcons. Also, BGSU has had four consecutive games go over the total, and that should be the case here.
Over 53 (-108)
