Northern Illinois plus 4 at Western Michigan

The combination of getting the better team with the superior defense and a bunch of points puts me on Northern Illinois.

Northern Illinois is four games above .500 while Western Michigan is 8-15. According to the latest Ken Pomeroy’s ratings, Northern Illinois ranks 194th, while Western Michigan is 205th.

The Huskies have the 70th stingiest defense in the country giving up 68.2 points per game. That number actually comes down to 65.6 when they are on the road. By contrast, Western Michigan allows 78.6 points a game.

The Broncos are off a 72-55 win against Miami of Ohio in their last game this past Tuesday. They have failed to cover 15 of the past 21 times following a victory.

Northern Illinois is 6-1-1 ATS the past eight times playing Western Michigan. The Huskies have covered three of their past four road games, all as either an underdog or pick.
