Georgia State Panthers vs. Western Michigan Broncos

Where: Waldo Stadium, Kalamazoo, MI

When: Saturday, September 14, 7:00 PM. ET.

The Western Michigan Broncos will be trying to bounce back from their loss to Michigan State when they host the undefeated Georgia State Panthers on Saturday night.

Panthers Going For Third Consecutive Win

The Panthers are off to a great start, winning their first two games of the season, one of which was the surprise win over Tennessee in Knoxville. They will try to keep their run going with a win over the Broncos on Saturday, which will give them their third win in a row and one more win than they had last season.

Georgia State followed up their win over the Volunteers with a 48-42 win over Furman. Despite their defense giving up 36 points per game, they have managed to come away with two wins. However, if they do not start playing well on the defensive end, their luck will eventually run out.

The Panthers had a big offensive game against Furman, racking up 362 yards and five touchdowns through the air and 204 yards and one touchdown on the ground. Dan Ellington put the team on his back, completing 29 of 37 passes for 362 yards and five touchdowns while adding 86 yards on the ground.

With the Broncos defense giving up 32 points per game, the Panthers should be able to keep up with the Panthers and their high-scoring offense.

Broncos Going For Second Consecutive Home Win

The Broncos didn’t fare well on the road in their last game and got smacked by Michigan State 51-17. The team will be trying to put the loss behind them and pick up their second consecutive win at home when they face the Panthers on Saturday.

Defense has been the biggest problem for the Broncos this season and the team will need to quickly figure out how to improve on last week’s poor performance. They gave up 331 yards and three through the air and 251 and three touchdowns on the ground in what was a very thorough beat down.

The team will have their hands full with Ellington, who can beat them with both his arm and legs. The Broncos’ offense, which put up 48 points in their season-opener, accounted for 352 total yards. The team had to abandon its running game after falling behind 31-7 at the half. Jon Wassink triedto do his part to help the team move the chains and finished the game completing 23 of 37 passes for 252 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions.

With the Panthers coming into town, the Broncos should be able to move the ball with ease, but they will need to take better care of the ball than they did last week after turning it over three times.

Best Bets for this Game

Full-Game Side Bet

Insiders Status:


The Broncos have played well against the spread while playing Sun Belt teams and are 5-2 in their last seven games against teams from the conference. The Panthers don’t play well against the spread on the road and have lost seven of their last nine road games. The Broncos have the edge because they have one of the best passing games in the country going up against a secondary that gave up 311 yards and four touchdowns in their previous game. Expect the Broncos to air it out and score enough to cover the spread.

Prediction: Western Michigan Broncos -10
