Although Eastern Michigan vs. Western Michigan isn’t a top 25 matchup on Saturday’s NCAAF slate, there are still plenty of betting opportunities for the game. The two schools are just under two hours apart, and Eastern Michigan fans will have to travel west to visit Kalamazoo.
Our experts analyzed the matchup with odds provided by Caesars Sportsbook and made an Eastern Michigan vs. Western Michigan football prediction.

Western Michigan will welcome in Eastern Michigan this Saturday, and our experts think the Broncos will cover the -5 spread. Western Michigan’s performance hasn’t been too impressive, but they’ve had tough matchups against Michigan State, Pittsburgh and San Jose State. They dominated New Hampshire 44-7 last weekend, and they’ve already picked up a conference win at Ball State 37-30.

Eastern Michigan is 3-2 to start the season, and their biggest highlight has been taking down Arizona State 30-21 on the road. Although that was a great win, starting QB Taylor Powell exited the game with a shoulder injury and hasn’t played since. The Eagles lost at home to Buffalo 50-31 the week after without Powell and squeaked by UMASS 20-13, who have been outscored 125 to 20 in their three other FBS games.
Eastern Michigan’s offense hasn’t looked the same without Powell, and although he’s currently questionable for Saturday’s game, we don’t think he’ll be 100% if he even plays. The Broncos are 1-0 in MAC play, and Saturday’s contest marks their home opener against a conference opponent. We think the crowd’s energy will give the hosts an extra boost, and our Eastern Michigan vs. Western Michigan Football prediction is on the Broncos -5.
