Idaho Vandals at Western Michigan Broncos Betting Overview

Rapidly arguments can be made that the Broncos are the best two-loss team in America. In back-to-back weeks, the Broncos were tasked with traveling to Los Angeles to square off with the USC Trojans and then to East Lansing, Michigan to meet with the Spartans of Michigan State. Against both the Men of Troy and Sparty, the Broncos were competitive. Western Michigan returns a duo of running backs that are on a short-list for best in country honors. The Broncos rushing attack was successful against both teams in light of the final results in each contest.

The Vandals come in off an eyesore of a loss against the Nevada-Las Vegas. The Vandals were simply vandalized as Rebels running back Lexington Thomas accumulated three rushing touchdowns against the Vandal defense. Previous to this outing where Idaho was rocked by a score of 44-16, the Vandals were successful in their home opener against Sacramento State with a 28-6 victory.

Idaho Vandals at Western Michigan Broncos Week 3 Prediction

In the early going we have seen an extraordinary lean on the Broncos as this market has moved by a touchdown since its open. An astounding 100% of the consensus love Western Michigan in this market against the spread. Last year, the story of the season perhaps was the tale of the Western Michigan Broncos who ran the table and earned a bid to the Cotton Bowl Classic before they were finally defeated for the first time in 2016. In addition to Western Michigan, many eyes were focused on San Diego State, Troy State, Appalachian State, and South Florida to name a few mid-major Group of Five programs that caught national attention. The Vandals should have been amongst those listed but they very quietly went 9-4 and achieved unprecedented success since re-joining the FBS. Most of the talent responsible for this fabled campaign along with the coaching staff that led the way are back in 2017. This is a team that very simply should not be spotted this quantity of points. Though Western Michigan has certainly earned its stripes with who they played in the past two weeks, Idaho is a very formidable football team. Excellent value on the Vandals.
