SPOOKY EXPRESS BOWLING FOR DOLLARS SELECTION AND ANALYSIS THREAD Little Caesars Bowl
Purdue vs. Western Michigan
Tuesday, Dec. 27, 4:30 pm
It’s Big Ten vs the MAC at Ford Field in the Little Caesars Bowl on Tuesday afternoon as the early part of a nice double-header. Don’t overlook this game as it’ll be a high-scoring affair where this high-powered MAC offense will face a Big Ten defense for the third time this year still looking for their first victory against the conference.
Purdue is back in a bowl game for the first time since 2007 and will face a high-powered Western Michigan offense looking to secure the team first bowl win in what will be its fifth bowl appearance. Purdue will be missing one of its main rushers (Ralph Boden) and its best receiver (OJ Ross). They do still have some talent on offense with freshman RB Akeem Hunt and a QB tandem that should be able to put up some points, and they’ll need to against the Broncos. Western Michigan’s campus is located only 140 miles from Detroit so they should have a home-crowd advantage.
The fun part of this game will be watching the Broncos offense go to work against Purdue’s defense which gives up 26.4 points a game and, although stout against the run, struggles to stop the pass. That plays right into Western Michigan’s hands as QB Alex Carder is scheduled to return from a separated shoulder which kept him out of the last game but didn’t stop him from finishing in the top 20 QB’s in the nation in almost every major category.
I am really looking forward to this game, why I dont know but have this game circled for a while. I think the MAC team gets this in win in this one since they’ll put up a slew of points and I don’t think Purdue can keep up. I have Western Michigan winning this game by more than afield goal and that my friends means this is a money line dog. As I stated a slew of points so lets go with the Over as well as a nice 2 smiley game.
