Western Michigan fought the good fight in their overtime matchup against Northern Dak. St. on Monday but wound up with a less-than-desirable result. They fell to the Bison 80-76. Western Michigan found out winning isn't easy when you're outrebounded 26 to 13 on offense.
Meanwhile, Georgia State pushed their score all the way to 87 on Monday, but even that wasn't enough to win. They fell just short of the Bruins by a score of 89-87.

Western Michigan is hoping to beat the odds on Saturday, as the experts think they're headed for a loss. They finished last season with a 10-17-1 record against the spread.
The disadvantage in the odds might be especially worrying for Western Michigan considering the team was a sub-par 1-18 as the underdog last season.
