The over is 7-3 in Rockets last 10 conference games. The Falcons are 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 meetings in Toledo. The road team is 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 meetings.
The Bowling Green Falcons need a win to become bowl eligible, so there’s some motivation here. However, Bowling Green continues to have issues on both sides of the ball, and they just got clapped by a losing Kent State last week. The Toledo Rockets are a well above average offensive side, and they’re still playing for a chance to lock a spot in the MAC title game. Toledo can be hit or miss defensively, but I have no confidence in Bowling Green in its current form. Give me the Rockets in a beat down.
