Western Michigan vs Bowling Green Prediction & Pick
Bowling Green enters this game with one massive advantage and that is in the passing attack. The Falcons are averaging a respectable 218.1 passing yards per game (No. 81 in FBS), while the Broncos are averaging just 172.0 yards through the air per game (No. 117 in FBS). It's going to make an impact.
Bowling Green is expected to get out to an early lead in this one, which means Western Michigan may be forced to lean on a weak passing attack to mount a comeback. That obviously doesn't inspire much hope for those trusting the Broncos. I'll ride with the home team here to pull it out in the end.
Final Score Prediction: Western Michigan: 20 | Bowling Green: 24

Western Michigan vs Bowling Green Best Bet
Both of these defenses enter Wednesday night as underrated units. Western Michigan ranks 19th in the country with 55 tackles for a loss this year and Bowling Green ranks tied for 10th in the country with 2.0 takeaways per game. Fans should expect to see a ton of stalled drives and defensive stops.
Keep in mind the under has hit in seven of the last nine head-to-head meetings between the Falcons and the Broncos. It has also hit in six of Western Michigan's last eight away games. It's going to take a while for these offenses to get going, so backing less than 46.5 points to be scored is worth the risk.
