The Northern Illinois Huskies have serious scoring issues this season and have been beaten up by even average teams. The Toledo Rockets may not have pretty numbers on the season, but they've blown some teams out this year and all three of their losses have been respectable. Toledo has also covered seven of its last nine games, so it's a team worth keeping an eye on in terms of making money. I'll lay the chalk with the Rockets.
