Western Michigan Broncos vs. Ball State Cardinals

Where: Scheumann Stadium, Muncie, IN

When: Tuesday, November 13, 6:00 PM. ET.

The Ball State Cardinals will be trying to snap a three-game losing streak when they take on the Western Michigan Broncos on Tuesday night.

Broncos Trying To Snap Two-Game Losing Streak

After winning their first four conference games, the Broncos had their eyes on the MAC West title, but their recent two-game losing streak has all but eliminated them from contention. They will be trying to snap the losing streak and get their seventh win of the season when they face the struggling Cardinals on Tuesday.

The Broncos have played well on the offensive end this season, averaging 32.9 points per game. They have been very successful because they have a balanced attack, which makes it difficult for opposing defenses to stop them.

Western Michigan averages 200 rushing yards per game, which is 41st in the league. They also throw for 243.9 yards per game, which is 56th in the nation.

Quarterback Jon Wassink has completed 61.6 percent of his passes for 1,994 yards, 16 touchdowns, and six interceptions. LeVante Bellamy leads the team in rushing with 907 yards and five touchdowns, while Jamauri Bogan has 534 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Defensively, the Broncos have struggled this season, giving up 33.7 points per game. The team has given up over 50 points in each of their last two games and will need to do a better job on the defensive end if they don’t want to lose their third consecutive game.

Cardinals Looking For Second Win In Their Last Six Games

The Cardinals haven’t had much go right for them this season and have only three wins in 10 games. They will be trying to snap their three-game losing streak and win their second game in their last six contests when they take on the Broncos on Tuesday night.

Ball State has struggled offensively this season, averaging 22.7 points per game. The team has had some success throwing the ball, averaging 251.4 passing yards per game. Riley Neal has completed 57.9 percent of his passes for 1,917 yards, 11 touchdowns, and four interceptions. He also has 586 rushing yards and five touchdowns for the Cardinals this season.

The Cardinals haven’t had as much success running the ball, averaging 165.8 rushing yards per game, which is 70th in the country. James Gilbert leads the way for the Cardinals with 586 yards and five touchdowns.

Defensively, Ball State is giving up 30.6 points per game, which is 87th in the country. With the Broncos coming to town, the Cardinals will need to do a better job on the defensive end if they don’t want to get blown out.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Cardinals have struggled against the spread this season, losing four of their last five games against teams with winning records and four of their last five overall. The Broncos have played well against the spread, winning four of their last five games after gaining less than 170 passing yards in their last game and 18 of their last 26 games after gaining less than 275 yards in their previous game.

Prediction: Western Michigan Broncos -7.5

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

The total has gone over in eight of Western Michigan’s last nine games against teams with losing home records and in five of the team’s last six November games. The total has also gone over in five of Ball State’s last seven games after a bye week and in six of the last seven meetings between the two teams in Ball State.

Prediction: Over 57

Full-Game Prop Bet
Rating:

The Broncos average 32.9 points per game and despite playing a bad defensive team, they will fail to go over 32.5 points in this game because their offense has struggled since Wassink went down with an injury and will struggle again on Tuesday if he doesn’t play.

Prediction: Western Michigan – Total Points Under 32.5

Half-Time Side Pick
Rating:

The Broncos will win the first half because they have played better than the Cardinals in the first half this season. The Broncos are averaging 12.7 points in the first half of their last three games, while the Cardinals are averaging 6.7 points per game.

Prediction: Western Michigan Broncos -4

Half-Time Total Bet
Rating:

The Broncos and Cardinals will go over the first half total because neither team is very good on defense, giving up 37.4 combined points in the first half. Despite Ball State’s offensive struggles, the two teams should be able to put up big numbers in the first half and go over the total.

Prediction: Over 28.5

Half-Time Prop Prediction
Rating:

The Cardinals have struggled in the first half of their last three games, averaging 6.7 points per game. However, they will go over 12.5 points in the first half of this game because the Broncos are giving up 22.7 points in the first half of their last three games and the Cardinals play well at home, averaging 14.2 points per game in the first half.

Prediction: Ball State – 1st Half Total Points Over 12.5
