Detroit has really struggled to play defense this season, allowing over 90 points per game. However, Detroit’s offense has been able to keep pace with their bad defense for the most part. Toledo is a high scoring team as well, but plays much better defense. I am taking the better defensive team in this one. I am picking Toledo.
