2007-2008 Western Michigan Broncos NCAA Basketball Lines

NCAA basketball line experts see that Western Michigan returns virtually everyone from last year’s team that finished 2nd in the MAC Western Division.

The team went 9-7 in the conference according to basketball lines stats. NCAA basketball lines stats show that the Broncos return Michael Redell who averaged 9 pts and 4 assists per game.  They also return Shawntes Gary who averaged 10 pts and 4 rebounds per game according to NCAA basketball lines stats.  The third guard in the lineup is David Kool who averaged 11 pts and 3 rebounds per game according to basketball lines stats.  Returning at forward is Derek Fracalossi who averaged 6 points and 3 rebounds per game according to NCAA basketball lines stats.  In the middle it is center Joe Reitz who averaged 14 points and 9 rebounds per game according to basketball lines stats.  Also in the mix are guard Andre Ricks who averaged 7 points per game according to NCAA basketball lines stats, Derek Drews who averaged 6 points per game, Andrew Hershberger who averaged 3 points per game and Donald Lawson who contributed 2 points per game according to NCAA basketball lines stats.

What may hurt the Broncos according to NCAA basketball lines experts is that Shawntes Gary is recovering from surgery on his right hand and Joe Reitz had to recover from having his appendix removed. The good news according to basketball lines experts is that Michael Redell is a tough point guard who can do it all. Gary can shoot from the outside and David Kool is a MAC Player of the Year candidate who can do it all as experts that look at the NCAA basketball lines see it. Derek Fracalossi can handle the ball well and Joe Reitz is very good inside according to NCAA basketball lines experts. Off the bench, Andre Ricks is solid and Derek Drews can contribute. Andrew Hershberger and Donald Lawson provide minutes off the bench as well according to NCAA basketball lines experts.

The Broncos are well coached and poised to contend for the MAC title according to NCAA basketball lines experts. Reitz can take care of everything inside and the guards can score enough to keep teams honest.  Western will not be an easy out for many teams this season and should be in the mix all year in the MAC title race according to NCAA basketball lines experts.
