    Western Michigan tonight

    -17

    Biggest game in school history. Ohio's defense isn't bad but they are up against a juggernaut by MAC standards. This one will get out of hand as Western plays for a New Years 6 bowl

    They're expecting 50,000+ downtown Detroit tonight for this game at Ford Field. Better believe mostly Broncos fans. They're excited.

    Daner I like it. Line going the wrong way but this is a blowout imo. I like Colorado +8.5 as well.

    I lean Colorado getting over a td. Not sure what I'll do. Both teams in unknown territory. Washington has everything to play for, but teams in this position are sometimes crushed under the huge amount of pressure they are under. Not to mention Colorado is a pretty solid team. I may look at a 1h under or a TT under here

    Yep, and majority of alumni live in metro Detroit anyway.

    All Broncos here. Ohio has a solid D but so does WMich. Ohio is incapable of putting up many points. Blowout!

    More important than that the entire metro area of Detroit is stuffed full of WMU alum, or family members. Even if you don't have any affiliation for WMU, if you live in that metro area you hate anything Ohio related. Sure plenty of die-hard fans of Ohio will have no problem making that drive, but how many can there be? This is a home game for WMU and should be considered that way

    I just got off the phone with my buddy that lives in Kalamazoo, and he is a WMU grad. He follows this shit closely... I know opinions are like assholes but when he has an opinion I have learned you had better listen. He is consumed with sports and such, he does not wager.

    He told me WMU originally was allocated 30k tix, and they had to request a shitload more. They opened up the upper deck... I would expect a 75% max crowd. Enough for it to be loud. My buddy also told me he would project a score of about 52-23 or so. You can say he is a homer, but he also told me WMU would have trouble with NIU a month back... he was correct went to OT

    Not a lot of action in Vegas, and the little action there is is wagering on Ohio. Line down to 16 1/2 at some shops.

    Not to be mean but what game were you watching? The fact that W Mich wasn't winning by 4 tds at the half was cause for concern. Ohio couldn't get a 1st down and turned the ball over 2 straight times deep in their own territory and W Mich basically turned all of that into nothing.

    Whenever it was 9-0 after WMU couldn't punch it in on the goal line, they were in trouble. Then they played not to lose in the 2nd half. If Western make it to the Cotton whoever plays them should smack them around pretty good if that other team shows up

    Still if WM scores on the 1st drive of the 2h, they are covering. Kudos to Ohio, played a heck of a game.
