Western Michigan Broncos vs Central Michigan Chippewas 1/20/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Western Michigan Broncos will meet with the Central Michigan Chippewas in a Mid-American Conference showdown in McGuirk Arena, MI, on Thursday, January 20, 2022, at 7:00 PM ET. COVID wiped out four of Central Michigan’s past six planned games, adding to an already depressing season filled with long losing streaks.

 

The most recent took place on Saturday and Tuesday after games against Buffalo and Ohio were postponed until further notice. CMU lost ten of its last eleven games, dating back to a 107-54 loss to Gonzaga on November 22nd.

 

The Chippewas most recently defeated Eastern Michigan 99-68 on Jan. 11. Following a week off, it will be intriguing to see what CMU planned for its in-state opponent.

 

Tony Barbee’s team scores 64.6 points per game while giving up 83.9. When adjusted for pace, that defensive number is dead worst in the country. The number on the offensive isn’t far behind. Jermaine Jackson (11.4 points per possession) tops his team’s stifled offensive.

 

  • The University of Western Michigan Broncos is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Thursday matches.
  • The total went Over in 9-1-1 of the Broncos’ last 11 road games on a team with a losing home record.
  • The total went Over in 6-1 of the Broncos’ last 7 road matches against a team with a home winning % of less than .400.
