Week seven college football takes us to the MAC where the Western Michigan Broncos travel to the Bowling Green Falcons.

The Bowling Green Falcons have struggled on both sides of the line of scrimmage throughout the season and those struggles continued in a 52-36 defeat at Toledo as a 23 point underdog. Boling Green held a slight 481-472 yardage edge but couldn’t sustain drives.

Falcons quarterback Jarret Doege paced a productive passing attack going 18-34 for 289 yards and three touchdowns while running twice and losing four yards.

The Bowling Green rushing attack saw Andrew Clair run for a contest high 118 yards on 12 carries including scoring runs of 60 yards and 61 yards while catching a 74 yard TD pass followed by Scott Miller with a 75 yard scoring strike.

The surging Western Michigan Broncos have won four consecutive contests following a 27-24 win against a stubborn Eastern Michigan as a five point home favorite.

Broncos quarterback Jon Wassink connected on 16-27 for 235 yards and a touchdown and interception while rushing four times for 14 yards and a trip to the end zone.

LeVante Bellamy led Western Michigan on the ground with 17 carries for 76 yards and a score while Jayden Reed and D’Wayne Eskridge combined for 131 yards on eight receptions.

Over is 7-0 in Western Michigan Broncos last 7 road games vs. a team with a losing home record and Western Michigan Broncos are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games on fieldturf and under is 5-1 in Western Michigan  Broncos last 6 games following a ATS loss. Over is 7-0 in BGSU Falcons last 7 games in October and BGSU Falcons are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS win and over is 4-0 in BGSU Falcons last 4 games after accumulating more than 280 yards passing in their previous game. Under is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Bowling Green and under is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings and Western Michigan Broncos are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. 

The Falcons are simply struggling and while laying nearly two touchdowns on the road isn’t ideal I think that’s the right play… 

Western Michigan -13.5

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
