The Toledo Rockets have been covering machines these last few years, but they were sloppy defensively in their opener, and now they’re going up against a bigger, more physical team. The UAB Blazers have some size to them, and they’re coming off a hot shooting performance. UAB is a sneaky good team this season. I’ll lay the reasonable number with the Blazers.
