The Western Michigan Broncos and the Syracuse Orange will match up in college football action on Saturday.
Western Michigan enters this one with a 2-1 mark so far. The Broncos fell to Michigan State 51-17 in Week 2 but otherwise have taken out Monmouth 48-13 and Georgia State 57-10.
In the victory this past weekend, Broncos QB Jon Wassink had 246 yards and a TD, with Skyy Moore leading the receivers on 97 yards from five catches. LeVante Bellamy and Sean Tyler combined for five rush touchdowns and a whopping 330 yards.
Over on the Syracuse side, they’re 1-2 this season. The Orange opened with a 24-0 win over Liberty but fell in the next two 63-20 to Maryland and 41-6 to Clemson.
In the loss to the Tigers, Syracuse QB Tommy Devito had 172 yards and a pick, and Abdul Adams rushed for 34 yards. Moe Neal led the Orange receivers on 67 yards from two grabs.
The Broncos are 4-1 ATS in their last five versus the ACC and 15-7 ATS in their last 22 in September. Western Michigan is 1-5 ATS versos a team with a losing record and 1-5 ATS in their last six road games.
Meanwhile, the Orange are 16-3-1 ATS in their last 20 versus the MAC and 6-2-1 ATS in their last nine non-conference games. Syracuse is 5-2-1 ATS in their last eight home games and 9-3-1 ATS in their last 13 on turf.
Western Michigan’s offense was humming against Georgia State, and the backs where rumbling all over the place in a stellar win. The Broncos have posted 105 points in their two wins. If they can catch some of that momentum again here, I like Western Michigan to at least cover in this one.
