The Toledo Rockets are obviously the better basketball team that's been tested on the road against good teams and won the games its supposed to win. But we're getting points with a home team that's one of the better offensive teams in the country. I like getting points with a great offensive team, as we know they're going to score a lot anyway, so it's an added bonus. Detroit has topped 70 points i nevery game this season, and while there have been some blowouts, the Titans do play their best at home. I'll take a shot with the five points.
