The Toledo Rockets I guess are the more talented team, and they’re going to have the edge at home, but this line is a bi thick. The Ball State Cardinals have been just as good this season, and they’ve proven they can win on the road. Ball State is playing good basketball, so I’m not sure the disrespect with this line. Either way, give me the points.
