The 2011 Little Caesars Bowl might be scheduled for the 27th day of December, but it will re-create the feeling of a September college football game. An explanation will follow.

Western Michigan Broncos vs. Purdue Boilermakers - Tuesday, December 27

Sports betting line: Purdue -2.5

Why Western Michigan Will Win

When you do your homework and assess your sports bet on this game, you need to realize that Big Ten-MAC games in September are natural occurrences. The occasions are perilous for the Big Ten’s lower-division teams, and they’re gleaming opportunities for the upwardly mobile programs in the MAC. The big brother-little brother contrast found in the relationship between these two conferences won’t always generate the highest levels of intrigue, but when evenly-matched teams from the Big Ten and the MAC get together, pigskin passions can run high.
Western Michigan went 0-2 in its regular-season tour of the Big Ten. The Broncos and coach Bill Cubit were thrashed by Michigan and then nipped by Illinois in a three-point game, 23-20. Western Michigan didn’t steal a Big Ten scalp in the regular season, but those two games did enable the Broncos to become a better and more resilient outfit. WMU won at Connecticut and used that win in New England to catapult itself into the second half of the season. Thrust into a nighttime tilt with Miami of Ohio, the Broncos used a sturdy defense to dig out a 24-21 win which enabled them to finish the year at 7-5, 5-3 in the MAC. In a season when Northern Illinois, Toledo and Ohio formed the class of the Mid-American Conference, Western Michigan’s fourth-place finish (third in the MAC West Division) represents a solid accomplishment the whole team can feel proud of.

Why Purdue Will Win

The college football betting  experts who are looking at this contest are aware that Purdue was not expected to make a bowl game. Purdue should also be satisfied with its progress this season under veteran coach Danny Hope. Everything looked bleak for the Boilermakers after an embarrassing early-season loss to Rice, but this team stabilized itself instead of spiraling out of control. A rugged win over Illinois in late October followed by a rousing overtime upset of Ohio State on Nov. 12 gave the Boilers the chance to lock down a bowl bid with a season-ending win over Indiana. The Boilermakers wobbled at times, but they won on the road to claim the Old Oaken Bucket and a postseason invite. An overachieving team is the kind of team that can be trusted in a bowl game.

Who Will Win

It’s Purdue’s overachieving ways against Western Michigan’s resilience. The sense here is that Western Michigan is battle-tested enough to handle anything Purdue can throw its way. Take the Broncos over the Boilermakers in a win for the Mid-American Conference.
