Ohio is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Thursday games and 6-0 ATS in their last 6 road games. The under is 7-0 in Ohio’s last 7 games overall. Toledo is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Thursday games and 17-4-2 ATS in their last 23 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Toledo’s last 5 home games. The home team is 4-1 ATS in these two teams last 5 meetings.
Toledo has a high-scoring offense, but is going up against a good Ohio defense. Toledo quarterback Logan Woodside has been able to have a great start to the season and will look to continue that at home. The Toledo offense may be one of the best in the country and I like them to continue to roll here.
