  • The forecast for tonight's Western Michigan vs. Northern Illinois college football game (7 p.m. ET, ESPNU) is calling for windy, rainy weather.
  • Here are the details of the forecast in DeKalb, and how bettors can take advantage.

Tonight, college football “treats” us to a two-game slate early this holiday week. I used quotation marks in the previous sentence because the Ohio vs. Akron game is truly one only bettors could love.

In fact, the matchup is so bad that it’s not even on television. Yeah, that bad.

Tuesday’s Western Michigan vs. Northern Illinois game is a bit more interesting, and is at least available on ESPNU for those wanting to tune in.

And for bettors looking to find some value on Tuesday’s college football slate, the weather forecast in DeKalb, Illinois, is already wreaking havoc on the over/under.

Let’s look at the full Western Michigan vs. Northern Illinois weather forecast and how it’s moving this total.

Western Michigan vs. Northern Illinois Weather Forecast

The over/under in this game opened at 54.5 and despite 63% of bets landing on the over, this number has crashed down to 51.

Why? The weather.

Sports Insights’ weather data is calling for steady winds of 16-17 mph throughout the game, which certainly won’t help scoring.

The National Weather Service also paints an ugly picture, forecasting gusts up to 35 mph and a 100% chance of rain tonight in DeKalb.

As one would expect, this type of weather is a huge plus for unders. The Action Network’s College Football Windy Unders Pro System tells us that games played in winds of at least 13 mph have gone under the total 56.6% of the time since 2005.

And for anyone interested in the “windy under” weather angle, there are currently 16 more college football games this week expected to see winds of at least 13 mph.

There is still plenty of time for these forecasts to fluctuate — and they will — making it even more crucial to sign up for this College Football Pro System and track real-time system matches from now through kickoff of each Week 14 game.
