Western Michigan Broncos

The Broncos are coming off a very disappointing season a year ago as they won just 7 games in the MAC. The big problem was the loss of Connar Tava who missed the entire season with a broken foot. Tava decided to transfer so Western Michigan will have to hope that Thomas Wilder can have another big season after averaging 18 points per game last year.

The Broncos do return four starters from last year’s team so they have the potential to be improved.  Western Michigan added five players this season with the best of those being Reggie Jones. The newcomers are Adida Ikongshul, Brandon Johnson, Jones, Jared Printy and Jarrin Randal.

2016-2017 Western Michigan Broncos Betting

The Broncos were just under .500 last season against the spread but they were a good team to bet over the total, especially at home. The Broncos went over in 8 of their 12 home games last season. They could duplicate that success this season with most of their offense from last season returning.

Western Michigan Broncos Picks

The Broncos could be better this season if Jones comes in right away and produces. He led Marion High School in Indiana to the Class 3 A title last season. Western Michigan should be a high scoring team but their poor defense will probably keep them out of title contention in the MAC.
