What to Know
The Eastern Michigan Eagles and the Western Michigan Broncos are set to square off in a Mid-American matchup at 7 p.m. ET Feb. 21 at George Gervin GameAbove Center. WMU will be strutting in after a victory while the Eagles will be stumbling in from a defeat.
A win for EMU just wasn't in the stars this past Friday as the team never even grasped a temporary lead. They ended up on the wrong side of a painful 81-54 walloping at the Kent State Golden Flashes' hands. EMU was surely aware of their 18-point disadvantage in the point spread, but the foreknowledge did nothing to prevent the result. Guard Emoni Bates (15 points) was the top scorer for EMU.
Meanwhile, WMU was able to grind out a solid win over the Ball State Cardinals this past Saturday, winning 78-68.
The Eagles are the favorite in this one, with an expected 3.5-point margin of victory. But bettors beware: they are only 1-3 against the spread when favored.
EMU is now 6-21 while the Broncos sit at 7-20. WMU is 1-5 after wins this season, and EMU is 4-16 after losses.
