Western Michigan vs Ball State 11-01-16 Prediction

Western Michigan will win. However, the 16 points are too many. Ball State can run the ball and should be able took keep it close enough to get the cover. The line started out at 16.5 and was bet down to 16. I expect more money on Ball State with the line closing around 14.5.
