Welcome to watch Central MI vs Western MI Live stream Week 10 of the college football season begins with Wednesday night MACtion as Central Michigan travels to Waldo Stadium to take on their in-state rival Western Michigan.
Western Michigan is a 7-point favorite, up a full point from where the line opened. The Over-Under, or total number of points Vegas thinks will be scored, is 51.5, down seven from an open of 58.5.
Before you make any bets on Central Michigan vs. Western Michigan, you’ll want to see what SportsLine data scientist Stephen Oh has to say.
Last week, he told readers to lay 7 points with Notre Dame against visiting NC State in a marquee Top-15 matchup. Final score: Fighting Irish 35, Wolfpack 14, another easy cash.
That win improved Oh to a scorching 27-14-1 over his last 42 college football picks. That’s almost unheard of. Anyone who has followed his picks is up big.
Part of his success: He co-founded AccuScore and specializes in sports simulations, projections, and statistical analysis. His NFL projection model at SportsLine is rated No. 1 by NFLPickWatch and was used by the three largest fantasy sports sites.
Now, he’s analyzed Central Michigan vs. Western Michigan on Wednesday night from every possible angle and locked in his pick. And he’s sharing it over at SportsLine.
Oh knows Western Michigan just lost its starting QB to injury, so the Broncos will rely heavily on senior running back Jarvion Franklin, who has rushed for 100+ yards in three straight games.
And the Broncos have defeated the Chippewas in five of the last six meetings, including last year’s 49-10 victory.
But just because Western Michigan has recently performed well in this rivalry doesn’t mean it will cover a full touchdown spread, especially in a rivalry game on a short week.
Central Michigan is 3-1-1 in its last five games playing on the road against Western Michigan and will look to build on a 56-point offensive outburst in their last game.
Both teams saw players achieve milestones in Week 8, including WMU’s Jarvion Franklin breaking the school’s career rushing record, and CMU’s Joe Ostman earning his second MAC West Defensive Player of the Week honor with a four-sack performance.
Both squads have enjoyed an extra three days to rest up and prepare for the game, which is helpful toward the health of the teams, but not as beneficial as a bye week,” CMU coach John Bonamego said.
“With the 10-day turnaround, it gives you a little bit of a breather, but it’s not like having a full bye week,” he said. “I kind of use the analogy of guys who are in a submarine crew. The sub comes to the surface, they open the hatch and they walk around on the surface in the sunlight for 15 minutes, and then they go below and back under water for another month or two. It’s probably more akin to that than anything else.
“Now we’re focused on preparation for our next game. It’s an important one because it’s our next one, and it’s an important one because it’s a rivalry game.”
