Central Michigan Chippewas 2013 College Football Predictions


Central Michigan
enjoyed good success the last two years of Brian Kelly's tenure and it did even better under Butch Jones, posting a 28-13 record in his three seasons on the job, but the Dan Enos era has not gone as well. The Chippewas posted back to back 3-9 seasons in 2010 and 2011 before finally breaking through last year with a 7-6 record. Central Michigan went 4-4 in league play and earned its first bowl win since 2009 with a 24-21 upset of Western Kentucky. Despite the improvement, the Chippewas are not being viewed as a contender for the MAC West title this season. 2013 College Football Predictions from 5Dimes have Central Michigan listed at +4600 odds to win the conference and +1900 odds to win their division. Enos' squad is also drawing -170 odds ($170 wins $100) to win fewer than 4.5 games.

While Central Michigan made progress last season, it failed to contend with the MAC's heavy hitters. The Chippewas beat up on teams like Akron, Eastern Michigan, Miami, OH, and Massachusetts, but they lost by an average of 19 points per game against Northern Illinois, Ball State, and Toledo. Given what those teams have returning compared to what the Chippewas have back (13 starters), the long odds are no surprise.

Central Michigan Chippewas 2013 College Football Predictions:

Central Michigan Odds to win the 2014 BCS National Championship +990000
Central Michigan Odds to win the 2013 MAC Championship +4600 (10 of 13)
Central Michigan Odds to win the MAC West Division +1900 (five of six)
Central Michigan Regular Season Wins: Over 4.5 (+130), Under 4.5 (-170)
