The Buffalo Bulls are the better team here and have a clear advantage on offense, but they're also not a team that's had a lot of covering success and is even worse in the favorite role. The Western Michigan Broncos have a couple of players who can get off in this game and we can't ignore four of their last five losses have been decided by 11 or less points. Western Michigan competes despite the losses. Early game, we could see some sloppy play. I'll take my chances with the Broncos and the points.
