WMU’s offense has been pretty mediocre, but over their last two games, they’ve woken up. They’ve scored 83 points and QB Hayden Wolff threw for 333 yards last week versus Central Michigan. They’ve now covered three straight and six of the last seven, while NIU has failed to cover each of their previous three.
NIU has solid running backs, but they haven’t been able to pull out close wins lately. On the road, WMU is 4-0 in their last four against the spread, so expect the Broncos to hang tough in this one and cover.
Western Michigan +5 (-110)
